AOTMP Telecom Certification Pays Dividends for IKON Office Solutions

Share Article

AOTMP's CTMS Bootcamp provides measurable value, ROI.

The Association of Telecom Management Professionals (AOTMP), the telecom industry mindshare and certification experts, teamed up with global Fortune 500 company, IKON Office Solutions, to certify its Telecommunications Services Center management and staff.

The relationship was the result of IKON’s desire to find a certification that would allow staff to operate from a common baseline of knowledge and practices.

“As manager of the Telecom Services Center and responsible for all telecom bill approval, I needed a certification that insured my team was on the same page, both in what was important in validation and ‘language’ wise,” said Larry Van Etten, IKON’s Manager, Telecommunications Services Center.

AOTMP, headquartered in Indianapolis, Indiana offers the most rigorous endorsement in the telecom industry. AOTMP provides three powerful options for telecom management professionals by way of AOTMP Certification Bootcamps.

“The class had incredible take-aways for me each day,” said Van Etten. “Suggestions I received in class have resulted in savings above and beyond the certification cost. Each member of the team is more focused…[and] increased their cost savings amount over last year, which I did not expect to happen.

“There is no better certification offering in the market for telecom professionals to fine-tune their skills, learn industry best practices and get the tools to excel,” says Tim Lybrook, AOTMP’s Executive Director.

The AOTMP Certified Telecom Management Specialist (CTMS) Bootcamp will be held January 16-20, 2006 with the Certified Telecom Management Administrator (CTMA) Bootcamp to follow on January 23-25, 2006 in Tampa, Florida. The Certified Telecom Management Executive (CTME) Bootcamp will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada February 6-8, 2006.
