The BICSI is a professional information and communications technology (ICT) association that offers training, resources and certifications for individuals in the field of information technology. Specifically, the BICSI offers a Registered Communications Distribution Designer (RCDD) certification for those who master telecommunication and data communication technology systems and know how to integrate the systems into industry-specific infrastructures. For example, the Department of Defense requires RCDD certification for employees who work on telecommunications design projects.
To qualify for RCDD certification, you must have a minimum of two years of ICT design experience and three years of combined education, experience and approved ICT licenses. Design experience might include project specifications, site surveys or first-hand experience working with architects or other professionals in the field. You must also pass an RCDD exam.
RCDD certification is good for three years. During each three-year period, certificate holders must complete 45 continuing education credits through BICSI. You must also attend one BICSI conference during the three years.
