Richard Tae and David Glassman Earn Crestron Programmer Certification
100% of Control Concepts engineers are now Certified Crestron Programmers

Fair Lawn, NJ— December 12, 2013

Control Concepts is pleased to announce that Project Engineer Richard Tae and Junior Programmer David Glassman have achieved Crestron Programmer Certification, making 100% of Control Concepts engineers certified Crestron programmers, a rare distinction among AV programming companies that program for Crestron products.

As certified Crestron programmers, Rich and Dave continue the Control Concepts commitment to providing high level, certified services related to Crestron products.

Project Engineer Richard Tae has been in the industry for 15 years programming for AV.  Rich says, “achieving the certification is an honor knowing that I am part of a professional group of Crestron programmers… it also validates the time and effort I have invested in this industry.”  Looking ahead to new project and programming solutions that Control Concepts can provide for Crestron products, Rich adds, “I look forward to continuing the process of providing the highest level of expertise with AV system solutions at Control Concepts.”

Of earning Crestron Programmer Certification, Dave Glassman, a Junior Programmer newer to the Control Concepts team, says, “the certification is important to me because it’s a reminder of the invested time, effort and hard work that went into learning how to program Crestron control systems. It’s also a validation from Crestron that they have the confidence that I am ready to take the next step and program their systems on a professional level. “

Dave continues, “I’m looking forward to being able to tackle my own Crestron projects independently which will not only add to my own growing knowledge base but will also help out the rest of the team at CCI by having more options for spreading out the workload.”

As  Certified Crestron Programmers, Rich and Dave join Control Concepts’ Senior Engineers Mike Korinko and Ken Danner, who are Crestron Gold Certified Programmers, company President Steve Greenblatt, a Silver Certified Programmer, and Director of Product Development, Jeff Mackie, who earned his certification in 2012.

“I feel that we are in an elite crowd having six certified programmers on our team,” says Company President Steve Greenblatt.  “It’s indicative of the commitment we have made to support Crestron, their products, and our mutual customers.  Being 100% certified is a great achievement and comes with important benefits such as access to Masters Training and access to the newest Crestron products and software that are critical to the success of our projects and relationships.”
