In the Ethernet wiring course, you will learn different types of Ethernet cables and RJ45 connectors, physical characteristics, and how to wire Ethernet cables.

While WiFi networks are ubiquitous these days, you still need wired networks because Ethernet is:

  • Simple
  • Performant
  • Reliable and less error-prone

When you install WiFi Access Point, or simply AP, you often need to wire APs and your upstream access line to ISP’s network.

After successful completion of the course assignment, you will be able to make Ethernet cables, and will receive L1 badge.

The class takes 2 hours including a 10 minutes break.


Targeted participants include those who want to:

  • know how network at home, or a property, should be wired
  • make Ethernet cables at any length


Participants must be over 14 years.
