What is the City and Guilds 3667-03 course?
The City & Guilds 3667-03 Design & Planning course is aimed, for the most part, at network cabling professionals and is seen as the ultimate training course for the telecoms industry.
This course specifically covers Internal, External Overhead and External Underground Network Cabling Infrastructure Design. Therefore, thoroughly qualifies students who are seeking to learn about the design and planning processes within the Telecommunications industry and become infrastructure planners.
Fibreplus Telecommunications College run the UK’s industry standard qualification, the City and Guilds 3667-03. The 3667 course is approved by the UK Qualification and Curriculum Authority (QCA) and can give delegates up to 3, level 3 qualifications.
City and Guilds have worked alongside the UK Fibre Optic Industry to keep the 3667-03 course content relevant and up-to-date. The 3667 course covers all the Fibre Optic industries current standards and codes of practice in order to qualify its students to the highest standard.
Who should attend?
The 3667-03 course is for those seeking to learn about the design and planning processes in the world of communications cabling and those wanting to become.
This course is aimed at experienced, existing network cabling professionals due to the knowledge needed to successfully complete the course. It is also aimed at those who are involved in Telecoms cabling infrastructure installations and those already involved at the design stage wanting qualification.
The qualification also provides progression for delegates who have already completed the City and Guilds 3667-02 Fibre Optic Installation and Testing course. The course is the best “progression pathway” for delegates who want to increase their promotional prospects, move into their telecommunication infrastructure role or enhance their knowledge of cabling infrastructure design.

How do you complete the course?
Our Design and Planning course will mainly be delivered via our online training portal with full support from our trainer and training administrators.
On our online portal you begin with the Unit 1 theory content and are encouraged to complete the Unit 1 theory practice assessment. Once completed you can move on to complete the project design briefs for your chosen units (2, 3 and/or 4). Please note that delegates will need to successfully complete unit 1 in order to move onto one of the optional units (2, 3 and/or 4).
Once the Unit 1 learning and projects are completed you will come into us for your pre-booked 1 day in our training centre. This will be to complete your Unit 1 written exam and to sign off on your completed projects with our trainer.
All written examinations (Unit 1 written exam) are marked externally by a City and Guilds examiners. City and Guilds normally release delegate results within 45 working days upon submission of verified examination papers.
Throughout the course delegates are provided with a comprehensive course manual. Firstly a PDF version whilst they work on our online portal, and once they come to use they will be given a physical manual to work through during their time with us.
Our Telecommunications Training Centre is based in Melksham, Wiltshire.
Our 3667-03 course runs monthly, and we take on a maximum of 8 delegates on each course, this is so each student receives 1-1 time with the trainer. Our practical dates consist of their Unit 1 written exam and project sign off.
Our practical dates for the 3667-03 are just one day. However, the delegate will have had 4 weeks of online learning and support on our online portal beforehand.
All candidates are assessed via a 2 hour written examination paper consisting of 15 short written answers. The examination is closed book and takes place at our training centre. Please note the Unit 1 written exam is marked externally by City and Guilds examiners.
