DULLES, VA, JANUARY 22, 2013 – Concert Technologies, the leader in global technology rollouts and deployments, announced from the BICSI 2013 Winter Conference & Exhibition that 30 of the company’s project managers have earned the Registered Telecommunications Project Managers (RTPM) credential. The RTPM credential enhances project managers’ services and increases their skill-set for managing a work force of field technicians as well as equipment logistics for global infrastructure projects.
BICSI, the leading international educational association for the Information Technology Systems (ITS) industry, recently began offering the RTPM credential. The RTPM credential has gained popularity within the federal government, leading to a high demand of RTPMs in federal infrastructure projects.
A major benefit of engaging an RTPM is the added oversight and coordination of the interaction between all the designers, engineers, installers and technicians involved in a multiple or single site project. In addition to personnel and project management expertise, the RTPM has specific knowledge of the cabling components, equipment and technology that work together to effectively disseminate information across a variety of information technology systems.
“With the RTPM’s knowledge focused on all aspects of technology infrastructure and what it takes to procure, install and test the components for maximum system performance, they can better set up communication plans and manage all stakeholders.” says Andrew Crone, RTPM, VP of Operations for Concert Technologies. “We realize the high impact an RTPM has on project success, which is the reason Concert Technologies has over 30 RTPMs on its technology rollout delivery team.”
The on-site deployment of IP technologies at multiple sites has been performed nationwide and internationally by Concert Technologies since 1995. With it’s unified technology rollout system of methodologies, Concert Technologies efficiently manages the deployment of IP technologies by local field techs at multiple sites on an accelerated schedule.
