Brand-Rex Certified!

Coretek are now official Brand-Rex partner’s after completing the Brand Rex System Design Engineers courses for Copper and Fibre Optic Infrastructure!

To become a Brand-Rex partner you’re required to undergo Technical Training every two years to remain a fully certified Brand Rex Authorised Installer.

Two members of our Infrastructure team, Darren Jervis and Phil James have successfully completed Brand-Rex courses recently.

The first course that was completed was the ‘System Design Engineer’ course. This involved intensive training on everything that a designer and installer needs to know in order to provide a Brand-Rex Structured Cabling System to the latest ISO and CENELEC standards. Once completed, this worked towards the Brand-Rex approved Partner scheme.

The second course was the ‘Optical Fibre Technician’ course. This involved a multitude of physical activities. Included in these are; the termination of fibres with connectors, practical elements of jointing optical fibres using direct termination methods, organising complex optical patch panels and the testing of the optical links with optical light meters and optical time-domain reflectometers (OTDR’s). This course was a mandatory requirement if you’re wanting to include fibre installations in the Brand-Rex Approved Partner scheme.

The benefit of this is that we can now offer a 25 year warranty on our Brand-Rex installations.

Go Karting

Coretek and Heritage Care go Indoor Go Karting!

They are always developing their business in order to introduce new, exciting experiences for their customers. The Tower Bridge in Central London venue, now holds electric cars which has been said to be a ‘truly amazing experience’, and you can find in locations such as Warrington and Reading, a three-level track.

We took along with us a few guests from Heritage Care. Heritage Care are one of our Business Clients, who we are currently helping build their own private Cloud environment. Heritage Care is a charitable organisation who provide a range of care and support services for people with mental health, disabilities and older people.

The session began with the qualifying stage which consisted of laps of the track to enhance your personal best. These results then ranked where you started within the final race.
