New York (January 4, 2006)–The Florida Electrical Contractor’s Licensing Board and The Florida Board of Professional Engineers have both approved the NSCA as a continuing education provider. Recognized as a leading training organization serving systems integrators and the low voltage industry, the NSCA now offers 12 classes accredited as continuing education courses for those seeking to renew their electrical contractor’s license in the Sunshine State. A slate of 33 courses scheduled for the NSCA’s upcoming Expo 2007 in Orlando will additionally offer CEU credit good for helping Florida’s engineers fulfill their state license renewal requirements.
“It’s an honor to offer contractors and specifying electrical systems engineers a wide variety of educational opportunities that will help enable them to meet Florida’s prescribed standards of competency and practice,” said NSCA executive director Chuck Wilson. “Virtually everyone that does low voltage work in Florida must be licensed. Over the years, many in the state have asked the NSCA to serve as a source of the continuing education required of the licensing renewal process. It’s been our goal to continue providing the most advanced course of study in our field, and to that end, now we’re offering fully accredited training classes and workshops taught by some of the brightest minds in our industry to those in Florida for the first time.”
The 12 classes designed to meet the needs of Florida’s electronic systems contractors will cover diverse topics ranging from audio system tips, techniques, and troubleshooting to other courses focusing on management skills and video signal processing.
Among the 33 classes accredited by The Florida Board of Professional Engineers, a sampling of course titles includes Access Control Systems Design, Loudspeaker Layout Design, Computer-based System Design Using EASE 4.1, Broadband Basic, and Design Considerations for the Corporate Market.
NSCA Expo 2007 will be held at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL on March 15-17. Featuring a number of other educational opportunities and business seminars, plus manufacturer’s exhibits showcasing the latest technologies, the annual event is free for members.
