BICSI revises, updates telecommunications project management program

BICSI, the association advancing the information and communications technology (ICT) community, releases its newly revised Registered Telecommunications Project Management (RTPM) Program, the company said.

The role of an effective project manager is crucial to the outcome of any successful project. They must plan, execute and finalize projects all within strict deadlines and within budget. And as technology continues to grow, the demand also increases for proficient telecommunications project managers. A BICSI RTPM oversees and coordinates the interaction between designers, engineers, installers and technicians when new ICT industry projects are being developed or undergoing construction.

To become a successful telecommunications project manager, individuals need a thorough understanding of ICT, personnel management and project management. As such, BICSI´s RTPM Program addresses that need through courses, a manual and a certification.

All BICSI project management courses, as well as the RTPM certification exam, are based on BICSI´s Telecommunications Project Management Manual (TPMM), 1st edition. The TPMM zeros in on the key information needed to execute successful telecommunications projects.
