NSCA CELEBRATES RECORD ATTENDANCE AT FALL BUSINESS CONFERENCE
More than 180 people attended NSCA's 10th annual Fall Business Conference. The event was held Oct. 21-23 at Paradise Point Resort in San Diego. The NSCA Education Foundation hosted its third annual Silent Auction at the conference and raised more than $11,000. Funds raised from this event will support student scholarships and education for industry professionals.
Industry and professional speakers provided unique leadership, management, and networking programs. Keynote Steve Farber challenged the audience with his presentation on extreme leadership based on his books, The Radical Leap and The Radical Edge.
According to Southern Business Communications President Daniel Boylan, the Fall Business Conference had excellent keynote speakers who all offered different perspectives. “I liked being able to interact with other members to share stories and how to solve real-life problems,” he says.
The next NSCA Business Conference, sponsored by InfoComm, is planned for the early spring of 2009. Stay tuned for more details about this exciting event.
EST LEVEL TRAINING
Do your technical workers have the education and skills they need to get the job done right? If you're unsure, check out NSCA University's EST Training Series. Genesis Communications, based in Edmonton, Alberta, chose to send all of its technicians through the training. In fact, the employees took the course simultaneously in two cities via video-conferencing.
“The most important thing is every single tech has the same baseline; we talk about [jobs] in the same format,” says Howard Humeny, senior project manager at Genesis Communications.
Among other skills, your employees will learn to:
- Interpret electrical drawings
- Use selected cable testers
- Understand the open systems interconnection (OSI) model
- Recognize the root causes of system and equipment failures
- Learn the difference between RB, RGB, sync-on-green, and RGBHV.
NSCA University's online assessment is the best way to gauge which level of training is best suited for your employees.
Call (800) 446-6722 and ask for Richard Moffitt to enroll.
The next training begins on Jan. 14, 2008. The last day to register is Dec. 28, 2007.
