What is RCDD?

The Registered Communications Distribution Designer (RCDD) certification is globally recognized within the telecommunications industry, as a designation of the exceptional qualifications and expertise of the individual, in the design, integration and implementation of telecommunications systems and their related infrastructure components. The RCDD designation is becoming ever more recognized...and many private and state organizations.

Who is it for?
New RCDDs...
The RCDD certification is for those individuals who have a minimum of 5-years of design experience, who are actively involved in network infrastructure design, or working directly with architects, engineers, network managers, or other professionals in the design, implementation or integration of network infrastructures, alarm systems or security systems.
Current RCDDs...Those of you already RCDD certified can earn 33 continuing education credits while receiving a current edition update as a refresher! You DO NOT have to take the exam again! All you need do is attend the 3-day instructor led class and sign the attendance record to receive the 33 credits. 

What will this do for me?

As the telecommunications industry expands, the RCDD designation will become ever more requested and required to submit bids for private, state, school or government contracts. You will acquire a wealth of knowledge from our interactive classroom structure, as we cover all chapters of the current edition TDM manuals, including Codes, Standards and Regulations, Horizontal and Backbone distribution, TRs, ERs, through Administration and Special Design Considerations.
