Certification Training Program Enables Faster Installs, Improves Troubleshooting, and Boosts Customer Confidence

CARLSBAD, Calif., Feb. 28, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Nortek Security & Control LLC (NSC), a leader in the security, smart home control, and wellness technology markets, today introduced a Technician Certification Training Program for their Dealers, Technicians and Integrators. The program, part of NSC's Certified Tech Academy, offers distributor and dealer training events, on-site education events, and ongoing training webinars for installing dealers, technicians and system integrators throughout 2018.

"After participating in a training class, I can confidently say the program up-leveled my product and installation knowledge," says Mike Fior of Schuler Security. "Outside of simply learning about fast installation tips and troubleshooting suggestions, I left the class with a newfound excitement for customer communication and retention."

The certification program consists of five training modules that cover product overview, basic installation, basic programming, troubleshooting, product partnerships, and a certification exam. Training programs cover both security as well as access control categories and include: 2GIG® GC2 Certified Technician, 2GIG GC3 Certified Technician, 2GIG GC2/GC3 Certified Technician, 2GIG Vario Certified Technician, Linear® e3 Access Control Certified Technician, and the Linear ProControl® Access Control Certified Technician. After completing each course, participants are able to install, program and troubleshoot effectively and more efficiently, which lends to an increase in installations over time as well as overall revenue.

"Our Certified Tech Academy offers our partners the opportunity to continue to uphold Nortek Security & Control's reputation of being proven, reliable, and innovative," says Jerome Bourassa, technical trainer at NSC. "It's a privilege to train already talented technicians who are eager to learn more about our products and how they can impact their customer's lives with excellent customer service and a product line that keeps them safe and protected."

All technicians who complete the program will receive a certification diploma, custom merchandise, and a certified Tech ID card. NSC is now scheduling courses for the Technician Certificate Training Program and currently offers free non-certification webinars providing dealers and technicians with the flexibility and convenience to train online with a live certified trainer. Those interested can sign up for the next webinar on March 7.
