New opportunities for the wholesaler, explains expert authorEDA-Front-cover-with-border-web-med

IT and Data Infrastructure is the 12th and final module to launch in the EDA Product Knowledge Programme.

This training covers brand new territory, not previously available to EDA members and affiliates.

Expert author, Paul Gorman CNIDP* CNIT** (Paul holds the Certified Network Infrastructure Design Professional and **Certified Network Infrastructure Technician qualifications), explains the potential for our sector:

“Increasingly electro-technical installers are involved in data-related projects, in part due to the evolution of Smart technologies and the convergence of networks over common infrastructure, creating greater business opportunities.

“Significant improvements in network connectivity speeds (both wired and wireless), along with reductions in cost for internet access, are factors that have also contribute to the demand.

“Electro-technical installers are having to adapt to a new language, new technology, and develop their own skills. That means that electro-technical wholesalers need to do the same if they are to grow this stream of business.”
