Why You Need A RCDD Designer
NM Cabling is committed to giving the highest standard of service to our clients. That’s why we ensure our designers are RCDD accredited.
The Registered Communications Distribution Designer (RCDD) qualification is only given to professionals who demonstrate the highest standards of expertise in the area of structured cabling systems and infrastructure.
To achieve the RCDD credential, candidates must pass a rigorous exam which encompasses the entirety of BICSI’s Telecommunications Distribution Methods Manual.
BICSI is the worldwide association for cabling design and installation professionals. RCDD’s must commit to strict education assessments and to constantly update their knowledge through constant cooperation with other network cabling transport systems professionals.
With an RCDD professional, you are guaranteed to work with someone who has reached a global standard in the integration, design and management of telecommunication systems and the associated data cabling, fibre optic cabling, AV cabling and CCTV cabling
Here are some excellent reasons to have an RCDD accredited professional:
RCDD’S HAVE EXPERTISE
Each RCDD undergoes extensive training in order to pass the comprehensive examination process. This ensures they have complete knowledge of the structured cabling distribution design process, and have at least five years experience of network cabling distribution design.
RCDD’S MUST HAVE UP TO DATE KNOWLEDGE
To maintain the RCDD accreditation, professionals must consistently update their knowledge to encompass the latest methods and technologies. RCDD’s have to renew their qualification every three years, accruing 45 hours of further education and attending BICSI conferences. These CEC’s can be in a wide area of study such as Audio Visual Installation, Floor Box Relocation, Fibre Optic Cabling and Office Moves and Changes
RCDD’S UNDERSTAND COMPLIANCE REGULATIONS
RCDD’s must gain knowledge on local codes, standards and regulations; ensuring they maintain the highest standard of compliance required for their region of operation. This puts RCDD’s in the ideal position to understand the entire span of a project.
RCDD’S MAINTAIN A SAFE WORK ENVIRONMENT
Safety is paramount to any project; RCDD’s are educated on safety procedures and regulations. They receive training in electrical installation earthing (bonding and grounding), hazardous materials and personal protective equipment. RCDD training often goes above and beyond the level required for many local codes.
RCDD’S GUARANTEE VENDOR NEUTRALITY
RCDD’s are not limited by specific product standards, and are tested on the correct design of vendor neutral structured cabling systems. The RCDD accreditation gives professionals access to advanced industry techniques, ensuring they are always on the cutting edge of innovation.
RCDD’S HAVE ACCESS TO A NETWORK OF INFORMATION
The flow of information is vital in the digital age – RCDD’s operate a network of shared knowledge. Having access to this pool of technical knowledge means that RCDD’s can react quickly to changes in the network cabling industry and maintain best practices at all times.
As you can see, there are a great number of reasons to have an RCDD accredited professional on your next project; in fact many organisations require one as part of the bidding process.
