BICSI AND FIELD NATION WORK TOGETHER
Tampa, Florida, December 15, 2014 —BICSI, the association advancing the information and communications technology (ICT) community, is pleased to announce a collaborative agreement with Field Nation, the leading online work platform for connecting businesses and service providers, to promote interactivity and information-sharing among their respective members.
BICSI provides the industry knowledge, expertise, courses and credentials needed to design and install cable, security and alarm solutions.

As an added benefit, Field Nation users will have access to BICSI’s Cabling Installation Program credentials and courses at a discounted rate.
