Broadband Premises Installer (BPI)

The Broadband Premises Installer (BPI) certification describes the knowledge of an entry-level technician who will install and troubleshoot telecommunications services (video, voice, and data) at the customer’s premises. The successful certification candidate has the knowledge to carry out a basic "triple-play" installation but is not yet proficient.

The BPI certification is the foundation and one of three stand-alone Broadband Premises certifications. Content includes "the what" of the basic installation. The other stand-alone premises certifications are the Broadband Premises Technician (BPT) and the Broadband Premises Expert (BPE).
