An industry-leading set of industry certifications and credentials have been set aside to protect and promote the technology and innovation needed to build the next generation of communications networks.
The Global Telecommunications Industry Association (GTIA) has identified 12 technical competencies that have been developed to help engineers identify, identify, and assess the most important areas for network infrastructure, applications, and network technologies.
The GTIA’s certification program was created in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks in 2001.
The certification program is currently being reviewed by a panel of experts to help determine if the certifications should continue to be required.
The industry-led GTIA was founded in the early 2000s by industry experts and the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD).
The certification process is focused on ensuring that industry is making the right choices, while also being proactive about improving its processes and tools.
“The GTIA is committed to advancing the critical infrastructure security, resilience, and resiliency goals of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS),” GTIA spokesperson Chris Bales told CBC News in an email.
“We work to ensure that companies are using the highest standards of engineering and certifications.
It’s a long process that can be challenging to navigate and difficult to understand, but we know we are in a very tight spot as we move forward.”
The GTIAs certification programs include: Technical competencies: Communications engineering (CEE)
