Technical Assessment Tool
Save time, streamline hiring, identify current employees who have extraordinary technical skills, and find the best new candidates by using the online Technical Assessment Tool.
During the interview process, this online test can be administered to technicians and installers so you can gauge proficiency levels before you hire them. How much do they know about fire alarm systems? Do they know the differences between different video signals? This test can tell you – so you’ll know how much training the candidate may need beforehand.
The test can also be administered to internal candidates who express interest in a role that requires more technical knowledge.
Topics covered in the Technical Assessment Tool include general industry knowledge and technology proficiency of a variety of system types at basic, intermediate, and advanced levels. Based on the type of employee you’re hiring, or the type of role you’re filling, you can select which categories you want each candidate to be tested on (as many or as few as you’d like). You have access to the test results right away, making it easy to compare candidates or identify strong candidates in certain technologies.
Each assessment is typically $75, but special pricing offered through Dec. 31, 2017, gives NSCA members access to the Technical Assessment Tool at these discounted rates:
- 5 for $300 ($60/test)
- 10 for $525 ($52.50/test)
- 15 for $750 ($50/test)
Thanks to the value it brings to the hiring process, some of our integrator members are now administering the Technical Assessment Tool to every technical candidate they bring in for an interview.
C-SIP Onboarding Program
Bringing new employees on board is an exciting process – but providing training to get them up to speed can be time-consuming and overwhelming, with no one able to take full responsibility for the task.
The C-SIP program (training that leads to a certificate as a systems integration professional) is a resource that helps you get new employees started on the right foot. It provides the right level of industry and job-specific training in an online, at-your-own-pace environment – without placing the training or information-transfer burden onto existing staff members. Online training is available in marketing, operations, sales, and project management tracks.
Each C-SIP program is typically $295, but special pricing offered through Dec. 31, 2017, gives NSCA members access to the online program at this discounted rate:
