Please Note You can start this course at any time and so if you wish to enrol onto this course please contact the CAI office on 01923 803030.

Benefits
This course will provide, at an advanced level, a theoretical base for systems installers including all the latest information of digital terrestrial & satellite broadcasting and reception.  Once the course has been passed CAI members will be able to register as a 'CAI Approved Systems Installer' and a 'Specialist Safety Electrical Installer' (SSEI).

Learning style
This course provides theoretical underpinning knowledge by distance learning techniques followed by a practical assessment.  Each unit will be assessed individually with a multiple choise paper and a short answer paper.  Once you have completed and passed all 10 units you will need to take a practical assessment.  For each unit passed you will receive a CAI certificate with your grade.  You need to pass all units and the practical assessment to then be awarded a final City & Guilds certificate.  The coursework will be sent to you electronically so it is important that you have access to a computer and a current e-mail address. 

Before embarking on any of the course units you will need to pass a Maths Assessment.  You need to pass this assessment in order to start the course.  Those who do not pass the assessment will need to find a tutor local to them to help with this aspect of the course and redo the assessment once they feel confident with their maths ability.

Who should attend?
The course is designed for installers who have experience & practical skills and wish to improve or enhance their knowledge of SMATV and IRS networks.  We must stress that this course is not suitable for absolute beginners.  Ideal prior learning would be the CAI Basic Aerial and Satellite Installation courses.  There is also quite a lot of maths involved and you should be confident in your mathematical abilities and how to use a scientific calculator.  If you are in any doubt about the suitability of this course then please do not hesitate to contact us.
