Wednesday, November 27, 2013 Concert Technologies, the leading global technology rollout company, has announced a marketing agreement with BICSI, the association supporting the information technology systems (ITS) industry with information, education and knowledge assessment. In conjunction with this agreement, Concert Technologies has developed Cabling Icon, the ITS industry’s first social media-based, interactive contest to find the world’s best ITS Installer/Technician.

BICSI brings important educational and training aspects to the 3rd season Cabling Icon contest. The 3rd season Cabling Icon may apply to participate in the seventh annual BICSI Cabling Skills Challenge, which will be held at the BICSI 2014 Winter Conference & Exhibition in Orlando, Fla., February 2-6. The BICSI Cabling Skills Challenge is an exciting, multi-day event in which competitors race against the clock and each other in several fast-paced events, such as Fiber Termination, Cable Assembly and SCS Installation, in an effort to be crowned Installer of the Year and win $5,000. If the winner of Cabling Icon is selected to participate in the BICSI Cabling Skills Challenge, in addition to the Cabling Icon prize package, Concert Technologies will also provide the following to the 3rd season Cabling Icon:

Paid travel to Orlando, Fla., for the 2014 BICSI Winter Conference & Exhibition

Complimentary conference registration

Hotel accommodations and meals during the conference

Wages for the 40-hour work week while they are attending the conference

“I am very pleased to see that Concert Technologies is once again demonstrating the value and impact that having properly trained and certified ITS Installers and Technicians can have on our industry. The Cabling Icon event has created a unique blend of real world and social media competition that allows competitors to demonstrate their technical knowledge and skills first hand in an exciting and self directed format that any self motivated ITS professional can compete in.

After following the competition closely last season I could not help but be reminded of the incredible amount of talented and professional individuals we have representing the ITS industry to our customers. I am excitedly looking forward to the first round of this 3rd season’s upcoming competition as I have become a fan myself. As an added incentive for the competitors again this year, we are proud to partner up with Concert Technologies by offering an additional opportunity to this season’s cabling icon winner by providing a pre-qualified spot to compete against regional and district champions in the annual BICSI Cabling Skills Challenge and the opportunity to be crowned with the globally recognized “BICSI Installer of the Year” title.”

David M. Richards, RCDD, NTS, OSP, ITS Technician - Chair and Head Judge of the annual BICSI Cabling Skills Challenge

If the 3rd season Cabling Icon does not meet the BICSI Cabling Skills Challenge requirement of holding either a BICSI ITS Installer or Technician credential, BICSI will award the winner with a scholarship seat to a BICSI ITS Cabling Installation Program course. Should the individual pass the associated exam and become credentialed by BICSI, the 3rd season Cabling Icon will have the opportunity to qualify as an applicant for the 2014 BICSI Cabling Skills Challenge.

“We are excited to have BICSI working with us for the Cabling Icon contest for many reasons,” said Dennis Mazaris, RCDD, RTPM, President of Concert Technologies and creator of Cabling Icon. “To be able to have BICSI provide an educational scholarship to the 3rd season Cabling Icon opens doors to that individual’s career path beyond the cash prizes offered.”

The 3rd season Cabling Icon prize package, provided by Concert Technologies, includes:

Grand prize:

Minimum $3,500 CASH. This cash jackpot will grow with each promotional partner contribution.

The coveted Golden Punch Down Award and an embroidered Cabling Icon leather vest

Bragging rights and the worldwide recognition of being the Cabling Icon

Runner-up receives $1,000

3rd place receives $500
