The eight-day Certified Network Infrastructure Design Professional (CNIDP®) is a full and comprehensive program that equips network infrastructure professionals with the knowledge, skills and confidence to deliver complex infrastructure design projects from inception through to customer hand-over.
The importance of collaborative working with key stakeholders is also emphasised to ensure that the optimal internal and external network infrastructure solutions are delivered, offering flexibility and resilience across a wide range of services, ensuring that network performance is maximised to meet the customer’s specified Key Performance Indicators (KPIs).
The core part of this program, the Certified Network Infrastructure Design (CNID®), explores the complex issues involved when designing whilst planning for both Inside Plant (ISP) and Outside Plant (OSP) network infrastructures examining the role of the designer and the multitude of disciplines required to deliver a multifaceted design to meet the customer requirements. Learners will benefit from understanding the design life cycle (from concept to design completion), including the analysis of the customer needs, the site survey process and detailed structure of a final design document.
The professional part of this program, the Certified Network Infrastructure Design Professional (CNIDP®), is designed to significantly elevate the knowledge and skills of the learner within the project delivery life cycle. The program explores the complex issues involved in completing a response to a Request for Quotation (RFQ) or Invitation to Tender (ITT).
Learners will benefit from gaining an understanding of all aspects of the tendering process from RFQ/ITT through to Tender award, and will understand the importance of the bid evaluation process and appreciate the need for thorough, detailed and accurate submittals to the client’s project team.
Elements such as calculating accurate project delivery costs, creating comprehensive implementation plan and handover criteria will be examined in detail and provide a thorough overview of all elements involved in producing a successful tender response document.
A certified CNIDP® also considers the requirements for compliance, having a full understanding of national and international regulations, codes and standards. During the program learners will be provided a valuable opportunity to access the latest industry standards.
Following this program you are encouraged to continue your professional development by advancing your knowledge and skills to gain further official certifications and qualifications by progressing through The Global Digital Infrastructure Education Framework which maps education programs to career advancement throughout the network infrastructure and data centre sectors.
The CNIDP® program is classroom-based and led by one of CNet’s expert Instructors and is also available via remote attendance.

A minimum of five years experience of working in the network infrastructure sector is required with at least two years project delivery experience, preferably in an installation management or infrastructure design role. In addition, knowledge of applicable industry standards would be advantageous. If you would like to discuss your experience or suitability for this program please contact us.

Successful learners will gain in-depth knowledge and supporting skills to confidently deliver detailed design documentation and the process of evolving a customer Statement of Requirement (SOR) into an accurate and successful tender response document. Learners gain an understanding of the importance of national and international standards and can confidently apply them to design projects. Learners will also know how the tender document is processed and the assessment criteria involved.
