EWA Assumes Management of Certified Service Centers (CSC)


The Enterprise Wireless Alliance (EWA) is pleased to announce that effective February 1, 2022, it will assume operational and management responsibility for The Consortium for Certified Service Centers (CSC). The CSC  is a non-profit corporation whose primary objective, among others, is to publicly identify and support service organizations that strive to provide competent and professional services which exceed customer expectations and experience. The CSC will be managed from EWA’s corporate offices in Herndon, Virginia, and will be governed by a Board of Directors that will include appointed representatives from EWA, the Electronics Technicians Association (ETA), and the Professional Service Association (PSA). The CSC By-Laws were recently amended to expand the Board of Directors to also include elected delegates from CSC-certified entities.

“Receiving a CSC certification is a badge of honor and provides necessary assurance to customers that they are working with the top guns of their industry.  For EWA members certified by the CSC, it means they are the industry leaders when it comes to wireless communications system expertise, deployments, and maintenance,” stated Mark Crosby, EWA’s Chief Strategy Officer. Crosby added that “it is our goal to expand CSC’s certification reach and to broaden the organizational disciplines that may be certified in the future. It is a challenging environment out there for customers, especially when it comes to choosing a service organization that has the knowledge and assets customers can trust. A CSC certification provides that assurance in spades.” 

CSC President Kevin Carter added that “the amended By-Laws will provide certified organizations a stronger voice in CSC growth plans. As President of CSC and on behalf of our members, we are looking forward to the expertise, energy, and reach that EWA brings to bear on our strategy.”

Certifications and CSC business activities will continue as normal under Carla Hurtubise, CSC Administrator. For more information: www.c-csc.org or [email protected].
