What is BICSI-Certified 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 certificate is proof that the certificate holder knows how to design the network cabling inside buildings. The RCDD certification program is governed by an organization called the BICSI, or Building Industry Consulting Service International. This organization provides information about telecommunication networks, such as phone and Internet cables. The organization hiring a construction contractor may require that the builder has an RCDD-certified person on staff. RCDD certificates are granted to licensed professionals. They are required to sign off on the architect’s design plans, so they have responsibility for the building design and network capabilities of the structure.

RCDD certificate holders oversee several areas in building construction. They design the installation plans for copper wiring, grounding and fuse boxes, as well as fiber-optic cables.

The RCDD designation is becoming ever more recognized and required…by many private and state organizations.
