The Importance of a Technical Education in Security and Fire

TpromoCom (image)| TpromoCom Education Electronics Network |

There are generally three levels of knowledge that security and fire field personnel  exhibit in the form of assumed titles:

  1. Wire Puller
  2. Installer
  3. Service Technician

Tech working on Network (image)From the time that someone enters the field knowing very little or nothing about this business, the aim of all concerned above them is to educate them in the intricacies of the post to which they were employed. For the Wire Puller, the Installer is striving to teach them which cable to pull for what device:

  • 4-conductor, 22 – 18 AWG cable for motions
  • 6-condctor, 18 AWG cable for card readers
  • 6-conductor, 18 AWG cable for zoned smoke detectors
  • Etc.

The Installers on each crew also strive to teach their more more promising Wire Pullers where and how to level and mount each device as well as how to install the main alarm control panel. And where  programming is done on site, the task eventually turns to the art of  programming all the intricate data into each location in programming.

This is necessary because the same Ops Mgr is working to move his/her installation foremen upwards into the position of a seasoned, knowledgeable Service Technician.

On a personal note, after decades of managing Wire Pullers, Installers, and Technicians, I have to say that the best Techs that I’ve  had, had some exposure to training in the electronics field. I, myself, became an Associate Electronics Engineer, trained for the manufacturing world early on. I was able to use that training to my advantage as an Installer and Service Technician right from the start as I worked in the field for 15 years before becoming a full-time trade journalist and later an Operations Manager.

The wonderful thing about this opportunity is that it’s free as each student can monitor the course. If they pass it, that’s when you can invest in a Certificate of Education for that specific student.

The value to you, as a manager, as an owner, is that you can use that ultimate goal (your willingness to purchase the Certificate) as an incentive for them to study on their own time, their own dime. Those who do not pass a course will not receive a Certificate, but the  main benefit is that they walk away with some of what they studied, which can only help them on the job.

What is Coworking

startdock coworking

What is Coworking | #TpromoCom #Business #WorkFromHome #Cloud | Being alone together, with a twist. In short, coworking is like working with like-minded people in a shared space. Coworking used to be a location, now it is more of a mindset. The counter-movement that it was – people on bean bags with bare feet in large empty spaces – has now grown into mainstream acceptance. Coworking is for all of us.

It was just a guy that was unhappy with the situation
‘It was me’ says the inventor of coworking in an interview with himself on his own blog. ‘It was me who invented the coworking space. Whatever you read on Wikipedia.’

home office (image)

Just like many other inventions, coworking started out of personal frustration. Frustration that was apparently shared by many. Ultimately one person took the first step and did something about it. He rented a room and made it available to other people with the same frustrations as himself. This was the very beginning of coworking. Twenty years later – and with it many developments, bean bags and ferns – we have arrived at the current concept of coworking. Actually, it’s very logical that we ended up here. The same logic that prescribes that coworking is not a place for hipsters who just want to rebel against the norm, but it is something for everyone.

THESE ROBOT-PROOF SKILLS GIVE WOMEN AN EDGE IN THE ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE ERA

THESE ROBOT-PROOF SKILLS GIVE WOMEN AN EDGE IN THE ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE ERA | #ESC_LLC #ArtificialIntelligence #AI #WorkPlace | The latest panic about artificial intelligence is that it will deal a blow to women in the workplace. Women accustomed to gloomy headlines may have met this one with a fatalistic shrug. But it is worth interrogating why on earth it might be true.


Women just might have a natural advantage as the nature of work shifts.

The concerns are legitimate enough, but they fail to appreciate the big ways in which the world of work is going to change. In fact, it is quite possible the age of AI will belong to women. Men are the ones in danger of being left behind.

There are admittedly some reasons to worry about women. Some AI tools may be biased against them — a risk for any group that has been historically underrepresented in the workplace. Because machine learning tends to learn from historical data, it can perpetuate patterns from the past into the future. Amazon reportedly discovered a few years ago that an experimental recruitment tool, based on 10 years’ worth of job application data, had taught itself to penalize CVs that contained the word “women’s,” such as “captain of the women’s hockey team.”
