Gideon receives NICET Certification

We are excited to announce that Dave Gideon, Owner and Founder of Building Controls LLC, has just been awarded Certification in Fire Protection Engineering Technology, Fire Alarm Systems, Level II, by NICET.

NICET- the National Institute for Certification in Engineering Technologies-is a non-profit division of the National Society of Professional Engineers and has been providing certification programs since 1961. Considered by most industry professionals as the premiere organization certifying the skills and experience of technologists working in various engineering fields, NICET promotes the continuing professional development of its certified technicians and technologists through a recertification process that emphasizes updated skills and state-of-the-art knowledge.

Many state and local governments are now requiring NICET certification to measure the qualifications of people working on Fire Alarm and other Life Safety systems. In addition to promising to uphold the highest professional ethics as a condition of certification, NICET also notes "By employing those workers who have demonstrated their technical mastery, employers can provide their customers higher quality goods and services. And, ultimately, the public enjoys a higher degree of safety and protection."
