DULLES, Va. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- 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 PMP may have more in-depth knowledge about budgets, risk assessment and scheduling, but the RTPM will understand the standards, specifications, the equipment and components, the lead time required for materials and all of the costs associated with infrastructure deployment. It’s like having a specialized project manager for the job.” Matthew Odell, RCDD, director of healthcare technologies for S2N Technology Group.
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.”
Concert Technologies graces the January cover of Cabling Installation & Maintenance magazine with the featured article on Registered Telecommunications Project Managers (RTPMs). President of Concert Technologies and RTPM credential holder, Dennis Mazaris, wrote the article, which reviews the history of project management and how the RTPM credential allows project managers to improve the success of telecommunications projects.
BICSI provides information, education and knowledge assessment for individuals and companies in the Information Technology Systems (ITS) industry. Through courses, conferences, publications and professional registration programs, BICSI staff and volunteers assist ITS professionals in delivering critical products and services, and offer opportunities for continual improvement and enhanced professional stature.
