Concord, CA–D-Tools signed a Program Recognizer agreement with C-Tech Associates, a New Jersey-based developer and manufacturer of training aids and curriculum for communications networking. The agreement will provide D-Tools dealers, distributors, and designers nationwide access to local labor pools. D-Tools says it has reviewed C-Tech’s communications networking programs for content and applicability to the marketplace, and recognizes C-Tech’s certifications known as Network Cabling Specialist, Voice Communications Professional, and Smart Home Professional; and will be promoting C-Tech training through it’s network of national and global installers and designers.
“Our goal as a company is to help system integrators and installers become more productive and efficient, and training and certifications are key elements for a successful business,” said Adam Stone, president of D-Tools. “C-Tech has an established and well respected program that has created a large network of trained professionals. Making our software a part of their curriculum is a natural fit which will further our goals to be the platform of choice for streamlining the system integration process.”
“Early on we recognized a need for trained technicians and installers at an entry-level wage,” stated David Brady, director of marketing for C-Tech. “It is very important to deliver the technology at a level that addresses the majority of the population and still provides the much-needed skills.” Companies have been able to cut as much as three months off a new employee’s preparation cycle by hiring C-Tech certified technicians.
Since entering the educational/training market in 1995, C-Tech has established a network of over 350 certified training facilities throughout the country, including vocational and vomprehensive high schools, community colleges, labor unions, community and faith-based organizations, Job Corps centers, and correctional institutions. These training sites are equipped with the resources, knowledge and skills to provide entry-level job training to any individual regardless of age or background. More than 40,000 individuals possess the telecommunications skills and knowledge-base to work as technicians, sales associates, customer service representatives or a number of other positions.
