Tel Tech Networks Inc. has teamed up with the East Valley Institute of Technology to offer occupational training authorized by Building Industry Consulting Services International (BICSI). The new BICSI Authorized Training Facility classrooms are located at EVIT’s Dr. A. Keith Crandell (Main) Campus, 1601 W. Main St., Mesa, and are designed to expand current course offerings and provide students and professionals with the skills necessary to progress in the communications technology industry.
Todd Cavanagh of Tel Tech Networks Inc. said the partnership will expand career options available to students enrolled in EVIT’s Information Technology & Engineering Careers (iTEC) program.
“Tel Tech will help support and have access to world-class training while promoting careers in the trades, networking and electronics,” he said.
Current plans outline a three-year transition period in which Tel Tech Networks will transition the program completely over to the school to fully support the program for the industry.
The two new classrooms include over 2,200 square feet of state-of-the-art communications infrastructure with four telecom racks, various types of fiber and copper connecting rooms, server cabinets, and audio/video equipment. Each room has a back board with a full complement of telecom equipment including Krone, BIX blocks, protector blocks, grounding bars, ladder racks and basket tray. Each classroom also has a rack with a full contingent of telecom equipment, including LIU, Cisco switches, and various patch panels with vertical and horizontal wire management.
EVIT’s iTEC programs at the Main Campus include: Introduction to Information Technology & Engineering Careers, Cisco Networking Academy, Computer Programming & Mobile App Design, Digital Device Diagnostic & Repair, and Robotics Engineering. A Future Engineers program based on curriculum from Southern Methodist University is offered at EVIT’s East Campus, 6625 S. Power Road.
EVIT offers 40 occupational training programs tuition-free to high school students in 10 East Valley school districts – Mesa, Scottsdale, Fountain Hills, Apache Junction, Tempe, Chandler, Gilbert, Higley, Queen Creek and J.O. Combs. Tuition-based programs for adults are also offered with financial aid available to those who qualify.
