Our recent class of cable tech trainees. Technical trainer Brent Gilbreath is on far left, and Technical Training & Safety Coordinator Chris Trevino is on far right.

Outsource offers an entry level structured cabling training class that covers the basics of the structured cabling industry.

Trainees are instructed in the basic history of telecommunications using unshielded twisted pair cable, EIA/TIA standards, how to perform a punch down on both 568 A & B standards, how to perform a cable pull through a ceiling, the installation of support structures, labeling of cable, and extensive general and ladder safety practices.

During the training class trainees are given a basic set of tools to get them started in the trade. This includes top of the line equipment such as a Klein Tools or Fluke Networks punch down tool, snips, a 10-in-1 or 15-in-1 screwdriver set, electrical tape, sharpies, and a 12 inch tool bag. They are also given PPE so they can begin work immediately. The PPE package includes a hard hat, safety gloves, safety glasses, a reflective vest, and kneepads.

Trainees are instructed in proper job site etiquette as well during the course – ensuring that our trainees not only perform to the best of their abilities but also in a professional manner on all of your job sites.

Training classes are being offered on a weekly basis in Los Angeles and Dallas and offered on an as need basis in all other major markets.
