COLOTRAQ, the foremost global sourcing advisory firm and master agency for data center services, is proud to announce that its entire professional and executive staffs have satisfied the conditions for accreditation as Certified Telecom Professional by the Technology Channel Association (TCA). The CTP program is the first industry-wide certification program designed specifically for indirect sales agents.
Seen within the industry as a critical step toward strengthening members' business relationships, the CTP program reinforces industry standards, technical concepts and business practices. This program verifies that the certified telecommunications professional has a solid understanding of the essential fundamentals of the industry and how they apply to the end users and carriers. Participants completed a five hour course and were required to pass a two-hour exam covering a comprehensive array of technical subjects and professional sales practices and ethics.
"Earning this certification is a significant accomplishment," said COLOTRAQ's CEO and founding President of TCA, Dany Bouchedid. "CTP agents are positioned as leaders in the telecommunications marketplace and will be recognized for their professionalism and technical knowledge."
TCA is the first nonprofit trade association serving professionals working in the indirect telecommunications sales channel. Its mission is to promote the growth and success of the indirect sales channel by providing a forum for agents and vendors to address industry challenges. They do this by raising the level of professionalism in the marketplace and by identifying and promoting best practices to empower individual businesses.
