Steve Ebenhack, the President of the company, explains why structured cabling is a viable career option. “The construction industry is always in the needs for new talent and this has never been more true than it is today. In fact, The Bureau of Labor Statistics announced in 2014 that it expects to add nearly 10 million new jobs to the U.S. economy through 2024. A lot of those jobs will go to skilled trade technicians in the construction industry and structured cabling is a great skill to know. As you gain experience and knowledge, you will be given more responsibility on the job and have the opportunity to transition into other areas of structured cable, including A/V and security installation.”
Outsource’s Field Employee Training Program provides quality entry-level low-voltage installers to our clients around the country. The introduction of a robust and well-designed program for entry-level training is done onsite at Outsource and is completed within a weeks time.
The program, which also consists of two days obtaining your OSHA certification, gives you the tools, safety equipment, and skills to immediately go out and work with out clients. At Outsource, trainees will learn data jack termination (568A and 568B), professionalism, jobsite etiquette, and will be OSHA 10 certified. All of our trainees will have terminated well over 100 voice and data jacks by the time they are released to the field.
Furthermore, Outsource also offers a bonus program for its training graduates. After 520 hours working with Outsource, we will supply you with a $200 bonus and a 6-foot ladder. There are additional bonus increases at 1,040 hours and 2,080 hours.
We look at our Field Employee Training Program as a philanthropic endeavor that also benefits us and our clients. We don’t charge anything for the training program and it’s a way to give back to the greater skilled trades community by offering people a way into the industry. We want to take an active role in providing people with an opportunity to better themselves and build a lasting career.
