Yonkers, NY (PRWEB) April 10, 2013
This year’s 2013 ERAI Executive Conference addresses the detection, avoidance and elimination of counterfeit parts in the supply chain, with advancements in the fight against counterfeits as its theme. The conference will host lectures, panel discussions and workshops led by experts on the subject. Participants include professionals across the electronics sector, including distributors, manufacturers, aerospace integrators and government enforcement. The two-day event affords the perfect opportunity for information gathering and networking.
As a pioneer and industry leader in counterfeit avoidance and quality assurance, with one of the largest, most diverse inventories of quality-assured parts, CTG is a perfect fit for Platinum Sponsorship of the ERAI Conference. President and Founder of CTG, Denise Gilchrist, insists that “Anyone looking for genuine continuing education around counterfeit avoidance, industry awareness and real solutions from leading experts, this conference is an absolute necessity.”
CTG has long led the way in the battle against counterfeits. According to Leon Hamiter, founder of CTI (Components Technology Institute) and former NASA engineer, "CTG was the first Independent Distributor that CTI trained on counterfeit component detection in February 2007." Last January 2012, CTG became approved to sell CCAP-101 Certified components. As expressed by Hamiter, this solidified CTG's position as "an elite Independent Distributor in the battle against counterfeiting." CTI's CCAP training and CCAP-101 Certification are aimed at detecting and preventing the delivery of counterfeit parts. Beyond training, CCAP-101 Certified signifies that the distributor has measured up to CTI's prescribed set of tests, controls and audits for components purchased to this Program. It is an endorsement by CTI that the distributor can supply authentic components purchased to CCAP-101.
