I currently have a A+ and N+ cert and have been working fixing PCs software and hardware for personal and business clients for the last 3 years, and I was wondering how I would go about getting into network cabling? IF anyone has done this or has any idea how about to do it?

Generally Electricians do data cabling. But there are places which specializes in data cabling and security cameras etc.


Some IT firms make their technicians do cabling as well. You will be crawling in some not so nice places to run these things. I would look for IT technician jobs that do a bit of networking since you have started training in those areas.




But if you want to do cabling and are serious about running cables then you probably want to get a job as an electrician and get an electrical certificate.

Just checked OCL's careers page for you.


They have a job advertised for a trainee cabler.




Would be absolutely perfect for what you're looking for.
