A COUNTY Armagh industrial training provider has announced the creation of 10 jobs after landing a deal to offer accredited telecoms training.

Industry Training Services said the collaboration with CTTS (Cable Telecommunications Training Services Ltd) will see it deliver the first of its kind training from its purpose built headquarters in Portadown.

It positions the Co Armagh firm as the sole public telecoms training centre on the island of Ireland, offering physical infrastructure access (PIA) accredited telecoms training.

“The telecoms industry is in a constant state of evolution, driven by advanced technologies like fibre optic broadband and 5G networks,” said Industry Training Services’ managing director, Brendan Crealey.

“As a result, the demand for highly skilled telecoms professionals has never been greater.

“Industry Training Services has recognised this need and has taken the bold step to be the first training organisation to bridge the skills gap in the telecoms sector by developing this unique training accreditation in Northern Ireland.

“Partnering with CTTS to deliver the training underpins our commitment to delivering training excellence to telecoms professionals,” he added.

“Already we have received endorsement from Openreach and they recognise that as we work in collaboration with telecoms organisations to deliver accredited training to their staff, we are helping shape the future of the telecommunications sector.”
