Get Ahead of the Game with CTS
Wasting no time with his new year's resolutions, Joel Vugteveen, Project Manager at Chicago-based installer TVTI, started the year with his nose in a study guide. But on Jan. 2, 2016, the celebrations began, as he became the first person in the world this year to earn his InfoComm International Certified Technology Specialist™ (CTS®) certification. Now he gets to put CTS after his name and has a little extra money in his pay packet to boot.
"For me, it was more a validation of the skills that I have and a certification that I do know these things," says Vugteveen. "It's still a little new. But I’m liking having 'CTS' added to my name, and, of course, the pay raise."
Meeting Goals and Celebrating a New CTS
After 18 years in the live events/rental and staging side of the business and a subsequent move into integration, salesperson Alexis B. La Broi, MBA, CTS® — now a systems consultant for Sterling, Virginia-based Avitecture — set herself a new target: to finally try for her CTS certification.
