Cabling Infrastructure Technician Book - Digital or Print

This book serves as a comprehensive body of knowledge covering the tasks and responsibilities of a Cabling and Infrastructure Technician (CIT). Built around the CIT job task analysis as defined by subject matter experts, this book covers the essential tools, equipment, principles, and best practices required to successfully install, terminate, and test the infrastructure required to support integrated technology systems. Topics such as jobsite safety, electrical theory, and cable properties are just a few of the critical knowledge areas and skill sets addressed which are necessary to succeed in the rapidly growing technology integration industry. This book is designed to help individuals prepare for the CEDIA Certified Cabling and Infrastructure Technician exam and is also an ideal reference to accompany on-the-job training or more formal education programs.

Mastery of the CIT body of knowledge and related skills is foundational for a variety of careers related to systems integration and is the first step towards achieving the CEDIA Integrated Systems Technician (IST) certification and further specialties. This book is succeeded by the CEDIA Integrated Systems Technician book which expands on the foundational knowledge of the CIT and explores the specific applications related to installation and integration of residential technology equipment and systems.
