Changes in technology highlight need for updated skills

Posted By Dave Simon, Wednesday, April 04, 2012

As the electronic security industry gets more complex, IT issues get more complex too. How is your IT staff going to handle these new issues? Is there a gap between the skill level of your company’s IT staff and where the skill level should be? A recent finding, courtesy of CompTIA, a non-profit IT trade association, says there is.

So what’s the big deal?

The big deal is that as the electronic security industry gets into more complex IT solutions, more training is required to keep up. Only 56% of the respondents in the CompTIA survey of 500 U.S. businesses and IT managers said the skills of their IT staff were "moderately close” to where they need to be.

The trend toward cloud computing, using mobile devices and continuous connectivity for monitoring purposes all bring IT into play. The technology keeps changing, which means your people need to constantly update their skills through quality training. It is the only way to keep your IT professionals on top of your company’s needs.

In the same way, your installation technicians also need quality training. Their knowledge and professionalism on the job greatly influences the confidence your customers feel and how your customers perceive your company. The only way your technicians can remain current is through training.

Fortunately, ESA provides an easy solution for you through NTS training. If you haven’t taken advantage of NTS training, do so today.
