Our company, URC, is dedicated to training. You should be, too.
There’s no shame in ignorance. No one is born knowing anything. But it is a shame if we pass up the chance to learn things that are meaningful to us, to our jobs and to those around us whom we serve.
So why doesn’t everyone take full advantage of every training opportunity that’s available?
Some people think that attending a couple of seminars at CEDIA and checking online forums is enough. As helpful as those activities can be, they’re a snack, not a sustaining meal.
Some people already know as much as they believe they need to know. John Wooden said, “It’s what you learn after you know it all that counts.” He recognized that the fuel gauge on our knowledge tank shows Full sometimes even when it’s closer to Empty.
Others say they’re too busy—they don’t have time to attend training. More words of wisdom from John Wooden: “If you don’t have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?”
If you pick up a few shortcuts or learn how to do something faster, the time you save may be worth tons more than the time you invest.
And maybe some people think that attending a couple of seminars at CEDIA and checking online forums is enough. As helpful as those activities can be, they’re a snack, not a sustaining meal. Wooden, again: “If I am through learning, I am through.”
At URC we believe that training is one of single most important things we can do to help you, our customers. To that end we have what we believe is the CI industry’s finest and most complete assortment of training opportunities, and they are all available to you. Other companies, including many fine distributors, have potent training programs, too.
So no matter which automation company is your bread and butter line, it’s time to get your training on. Like John Wooden said, “Success comes from knowing that you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming.”
