City and Guilds 3668 – 03, Unit 309 Level 3 Design and Planning External Enterprise Networks Full Award with Core Modules Included
City and Guilds Level 3 | 5 days
This 5 Day Design and Planning External Enterprise Networks Unit 301, 302 & 309 course aims to provide delegates with an understanding of the industry standards and requirements when designing and planning external fibre networks. Delegates will have the opportunity to develop knowledge and a practical understanding of the various techniques, skills and documentation that are necessary for planning external fibre networks.
In addition, delegates will develop an understanding of the Health and Safety practices, relevant primary legislation and other codes of practice, which are regarded as the pre-requisites for conducting any on-site surveys and assessments.
As part of planning processes, delegates will gain a significant understanding of the correct procedures, when designing a network using other licensed operators’ infrastructure including distribution network operator (DNO) overhead networks and Physical Infrastructure Access (PIA). Delegates will consider in depth, dedicated “stand alone” network designs, including local planning considerations etc, alongside and cost control/project management.
Unit 301: The aim of this unit is to enable delegates to gain an understanding of the safety, to develop and increase the knowledge required for safety, including safe working practices and behaviours, whether working in an internal network and in the external network, including underground, overhead and the public highway.
Unit 302: The aim of this unit is to enable delegates to gain an understanding of the fundamental of telecoms transmission technologies.

- Describe data transmission methods used as part of data and telecommunications networks.
- Describe the role of the organisations that are responsible for establishing telecoms and data network standards
- Describe the layers of the OSI model and function of each layer, referencing the TCP/IP model.
- Describe the purpose of standards associated with data and telecommunications networks
- Describe the role of protocols in data and telecommunications networks.
