Throughout Africa there is a critical skills shortage around data cable installation. We estimate that less than 10% of cables are installed according to best practice and through a certified process. Ultimately this means the foundation of running IT in Africa is sub-Standard. As a comparison in areas like Europe and the USA the opposite is true in that 90% of cables will be installed through a best practice and certified process. Africa has a big gap to close.

At Bitrate we understand the need for training. To improve the standard of cable installations the skills of the installers needs to be improved. This includes theoretical knowledge as well as practical experience.

  • Fluke Networks Certified Cabling Technician Training. Which includes copper & fibre. 2 days
