When the Electronic Security Association (ESA) moves into its new office space at the beginning of November, association members will have a new location to participate in NTS courses.
The new headquarters, located adjacent to DFW International Airport in Irving, TX, will include a dedicated space for NTS courses to be held.
"As we evaluated the needs of our members and the future of NTS, we realized that there would be tremendous room for growth by bringing our training in-house,” says ESA Executive Director Merlin Guilbeau.
"The new facility gives us the location, the space and the functionality we need to make training a positive experience for students coming from almost anywhere.”
The space, which will seat up to 30 students, will be used for NTS sponsored classes starting in January, and will be available for our members to host training, seminars and client meetings in the DFW area, according to Howard Sanders, Senior Vice President, Training & Certification, ESA.
"For many employers, the soft job market gives them an opportunity to upgrade talent that they otherwise would not be able to attract due to wage constraints. And for employees, those with the best skills and most credentials have found it much easier to stay employed or become re-employed, using education and experience as their differentiator in the workplace. So it makes sense for everyone in the industry to take advantage of training opportunities,” says Sanders.
Courses will continue to be conducted at various locations around the country, as well as online. But the new location offers an opportunity for attendees to come from across the country.
"We’re flexible in working with members on cost/benefit calculations regarding remote or onsite staff training, and providing the instructor and course materials necessary to make it a beneficial learning experience,” says Sanders.
The new ESA address, as of November 1, will be 6333 N. State Highway 161, Suite 350, Irving, TX 75038.
