As such, companies must ensure that IT staff members are trained and up-to-date with the newest IP communications technologies. As many are discovering, industry certification programs help ensure that IT staff have a proper foundation for deploying, managing, monitoring and troubleshooting these new technologies.
The Convergence (News - Alert) Technologies Professional certification program is the official certification of the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA). Companies that endorse and use CTP include Avaya, Mitel, Nortel, Toshiba, Iwatsu (News - Alert) and others. These vendors also contribute to, and guide the direction of, the program through the CTP Certification Advisory Council.

The course covers networking models and topologies; network operating systems; key networking protocols; the basics of LANs and WANs; wireless network technologies; Internet addressing; TCP/IP troubleshooting; common telephony standards; analog and digital signaling; standards agencies in the telecommunications industry; functions of gatekeepers and gateways; and the QoS technologies used in converged networks.
