My cohorts Martha and Leischen forwarded an email from SIA on to me. It looks like SIA is improving its central station training courses beginning in August. From the email:
Starting with the August class in Alexandria, Va., the CST course will include expanded instruction on: ETL certification; how to read formats (with an explanation of the various languages); alternate signal delivery to include IP and GSM; and other topics.I wrote a story on the SIA CST recently and at the time, MJ Vance from CenterPoint Technologies (who underwent the course, herself) said the course was of extreme value.
Taking the SIA instructor classes really shows your level of commitment not only to educate yourself on the industry, but to educate your employees and help them sharpen their skills. At CenterPoint, we really felt it was our responsibilityâ€”managementâ€™s responsibilityâ€”to ensure every employee is given the right tools to succeed in the position they were hired for.More information on the courses can be fond at SIA's website.
