Junior Gino Isabella and fourteen area students just completed their first steps toward becoming professionals in the network cabling industry.
The students, who attend the Capital Region BOCES Network Cabling Technician Smart Home Technology program, were awarded the Network Cabling Academy Fiber Certification. The professional certification acknowledges the students’ understanding of the terminology and science behind optical cable technologies.
“By completing this certification, these students are way ahead of other entry-level applicants in this field,” said teacher Ed Henson.
Isabella said he appreciates the ability to build his resume with professional certifications while still in high school. “The certification provides us with opportunities for careers we otherwise wouldn’t have had,” stated Isabella.
Students in the two-year program learn skills in everything from network cabling using copper-based systems to applied systems integration to energy management systems and telephone systems. You can learn about this program and many more here.
