    Hey all! I a new guy here so go easy on me :biggrin ...lol

    Anyway curently Im A+, Network+, and an MCSA:Windows 2000. I've been in the field for 7 years now and have been supporting inside and outside cabling plants for pretty much the entire time. I'm wondering, does any association or industry group out there provide a certification exam for physical cabling? I've tried looking through what Prometric and Pearson/vue have and have'nt really found anything yet, can anyone throw me some assistance on this? I'd be very grateful.

    Thanks guys!

    Ben :D

    Hi, benhart007. A quick Google didn't seem to indicate anything but I might not be using the right search string. You'd think there'd be some sort of certification process but who am I to know?

    In any event, welcome to our humble corner of cyberspace. When you get a moment, please pop up to the New Members Introduction forum and say a proper "hello". Cheers. :)

    Thats what I would have thought as well...crap if you look through Prometrics list of exam providers you'll even see Quiznos! I can only assume the sub-maker?!?! Why would'nt there be one for cabling?

    Anyway thanks for the reply and I'll pop up to the new members place as well.

    Sorry if I'm taking a wild stab here, but it would seem to me that it is a genuine subject to have a qualification in, but not necessarily in IT. Would this maybe better fall under the category electrical/ electronics or something. Have you looked to see if IEEE offer anything along these lines.

    As I said - just some random words typed onto a page from me ...:oops:
