BICSI Education Credits


The Fiber Broadband Association (FBA) is pleased to share that the annual Fiber Connect conference has been approved by BICSI as a Continuing Education Credits (CEC) opportunity. Those who attend the 2018 FIber Connect will be eligible to earn ten CECs.

As many of you may know, BICSI, the professional development association supporting the information and communications industries, requires engineers and installers to earn 45 Continuing Education Credits (CECs) every three years to keep their credentials.

As the fiber industry evolves to meet more of our connected world’s increasing needs, keeping your expertise up to date is critical. Helping you and your colleagues get better at what you do and to sharpen your knowledge and skill set—including offering these BICSI CECs—is one of the many ways that the Fiber Broadband Association strives to serve the fiber industry.

There’s something for everyone to learn at the Fiber Connect, our annual conference which will be held in Nashville this year from June 4th through 6th. No matter what your company’s specific priorities may be, all of us in the fiber industry strive for reliable, profitable networks that are efficiently deployed, deliver ultra-high speed services, and keep customers satisfied.
