Cisco, BISCI Partnership to Advance ITS Market Tech Education

TAMPA,  Fla. — A new partnership between Building Industry Consulting Service Int’l (BICSI) and Cisco will provide technology training to the Information transport systems (ITS) industry. BISCI is an association that provides support the ITS trade.

Both businesses will offer courses for each other’s customer base. Cisco will provide training and certifications for the Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) model’s network layer. For its part, BICSI will grant credentials for those working in OSI physical and data link layers.

“There are only a few areas in the economy where jobs and opportunities for employment are recession-proof,” says Learning@Cisco Vice President Jeanne Beliveau-Dunn. “The dynamic networking field is one of them. As we continue to see double-digit growth in the job market for network architects, engineers, technicians and security specialists, we are working with industry leaders to assist the growth of talent for the industry.”

Roughly 24 Cisco courses have been approved for BICSI continuing education credits (CECs). As a result, BICSI members taking those courses will be able to receive additional CECs. Active Cisco certification holders will also receive discounts on BICSI products and standards.

“This is a huge benefit for those who are looking for more opportunities to get CECs without having to travel far distances,” says BICSI President Brian Hansen.” Cisco offers instructor-led training through authorized learning partners around the world, self-assessments, mobile learning and E-learning products. This customized approach will help solidify BICSI’s stance in getting CECs for our global community as well.”
