Don’t be stuck in the dark ages, Open Registration has become a necessity for all things internet. Doesn’t matter what project you’re working on; networking, data and voice cabling will be a part of the scope of works.

All cabling work, including telephone, data, fire and security alarm systems cabling, that connects with the telecommunications network must be performed by a registered cabler or under the direct supervision of a registered cabler.

An Open Registration Licence enables you to legally install and maintain telephone, security and fire alarm cabling in all types of premises – however, please be aware that there are further training requirements for working with data cabling, coaxial cabling, or optical fibre installations.

Please note: please check the pre-requisites before registering.
