The inaugural BICSI, Tampa, Fla., Cabling Skills Challenge will feature the world’s best information transport systems (ITS) installers testing their skills and knowledge as they compete for the title of Installer of the Year. The event will be held in conjunction with the evening exhibition sessions during the 2008 BICSI Spring Conference, scheduled for April 27-30, in Nashville, Tenn. Competitors for the challenge will be selected from the field of entrants based on qualifying criteria such as professionalism, quality of resume, and work experience.

“The Cabling Skills Challenge offers a substantial opportunity for BICSI Registered Installers and Technicians to highlight the expertise they’ve gained through years of training and experience working in the ITS industry,” says Dan Morris, RCDD, chair, BICSI Installation Committee. “We are very excited to develop the event as part of our continuing effort to broaden our outreach to the heart of our industry; the installers and technicians.”

The deadline for application is March 15. For complete details, including the challenge schedule and application form, visit BICSI’s Web site.
