The RCDD class will take place in Chino Hills, CA on June 11, 12 and 13th.

Class Description: The RCDD credentialing is geared toward those in information transport systems, or ITS. Those who attain RCDD certification are looked upon as having demonstrated knowledge and experience in “design, implementation and integration of information transport systems and related infrastructure.” As such, people looking to hire people in ITS may find those with RCDD credentialing more attractive. RCDD credentialing is recognized in U.S. industries and internationally.

Requirements: As of April 2010, there are two different ways to meet the requirements to take the RCDD exam. The first is to have a minimum of five years of experience in ITS design. If you don’t have five years of experience, you can have least two years in ITS design experience and some “combination of experience, approved education and approved ITS license/certification,” according to professional association BISCI. Beyond the initial qualifications to apply for the certification, you must pass the RCDD test.

Cost: $895.00

Both classes will be taught by Dave Sanders, RCDD, LAN, OSP.
