Recognizing the need for education in the increasingly popular field of information networking, Fluke Networks, Everett, Wash., and 3M, St. Paul, Minn., recently announced they will come join forces to offer a hands-on training course for cabling professional responsible for installing and maintaining high-speed structured cabling systems.
