Norwell, MA – (January 6, 2012) – SIGNET Electronic Systems, Inc. prides itself for having the widest range of certifications of any systems integrator in the country. “We are unique in that we are a true systems integrator,” explains Bradford S. Caron, President and Owner of SIGNET.
“While most integrators specialize in one or two industries, SIGNET has expertise in life safety, communications, security, and audio visual solutions.”
Because SIGNET is so diverse in its offerings and because the industry is so dynamic, it is essential for employees to maintain proficiency in the various disciplines.
To ensure that SIGNET remains a diverse, leading-edge integrator, SIGNET has created a certification bonus program whereby company employees are incentivized to earn and maintain credentials. The bonus program includes an initial bonus for earning a certification—that ranges between $200 and $4,000, depending on the level of certification—and further bonuses for maintaining year after year. Additionally, SIGNET reimburses employees for all certification related expenses and allows them to study and take exams during work hours.
One SIGNET employee who exemplifies the success of this program is Greg Sparrow, Director of System Integration. Sparrow is believed to be the only person in the systems integration industry, as well as in the world, to have obtained this combination of certifications: RCDD-BICSI Registered Communication Distribution Designer (Building Industry Consulting Services, International), NTS-BICSI Network Technology Systems Designer, ESS-BICSI Electronic Safety and Security Designer, PMP-PMI Project Management Professional (Project Management Institute), and CTS-InfoComm International Certified Technology Specialist. This combination is significant because it encompasses the diverse range of technical solutions and services SIGNET offers its clients.
As the Director of System Integration, Sparrow is responsible for overseeing and implementing all integration projects at SIGNET.
“Certifications not only demonstrate an individual’s ability to understand a topic, but also the continued commitment to develop new skills, embrace new technologies, and stay current with the profession,”
