Element Customer Care proudly announced the graduation of its first in-house Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) class. This class is the result of Element's in-house training program and the corporate focus on developing the whole person to create a team of tech-savvy employees. Element provides billing services, tech support and a customer service call center for cable, broadband and telecommunications operators using CSG Systems software solutions.
"Having this level of training and knowledge in house is essential to the growth of our company," said Matt Zemon, President, Element Customer Care. "It also reinforces the commitment our customer service representatives have to providing the best possible tech support and customer service for our clients."
Element's employees are encouraged to take advantage of in-house certification programs such as CCNA. Also offered are training opportunities such as compTIA+, analog video, digital video, VoIP and more. Element has a staff of eight in our training department, lead by Mary Celle, M.Ed. and Tony Espinoza, Vice President, Operations.
The Cisco network associate certification empowers graduates with the ability to install, configure, operate, and troubleshoot medium-size routed and switched networks, including implementation and verification of connections to remote sites in a WAN. The curriculum also includes, but is not limited to, the use of these protocols: IP, Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP), Serial Line Interface Protocol Frame Relay, Routing Information Protocol Version 2 (RIPv2), VLANs, Ethernet, access control lists (ACLs)
