Key Employee Certificate (KEC) Program
Key Employee Certificate
NTCA offers a curriculum designed specifically for key employees called the Key Employee Curriculum program (KEC) that provides exceptional programming, education and training they need to increase their expertise and contribute to their telco's success. Participants in the program must complete each of the 11 required courses and another nine elective courses for a total of 20 credits to earn a certificate. The program focuses on industry, management, leadership skills and professional development principles.
Eligible courses are offered in rotation at NTCA meetings and conferences, online through the NTCA Live Learning Center, and at stand-alone seminars. Participation in live courses is tracked automatically. There is no time restriction as to when the certificate must be completed. When all requirements have been completed the certificate will be mailed.
Key Employees will benefit from:
- Finance & Accounting Conference*
- IP Vision Conference & Expo
- HR Conference*
- Legal Seminar
- PR & Marketing Conference*
- Legislative & Policy Conference
*These conferences qualify for the Key Employee Certificate.
To qualify for the KEC program, employees must be enrolled by their general manager. The KEC program recognizes key employees of NTCA member telcos who have completed the course requirements below. Courses are divided among three areas of study (policy, technology, and business) and each area contains both core and elective courses. Only courses offered by NTCA and approved statewide associations can be applied toward completion of this certificate.
The KEC program recognizes enrolled key employees of NTCA member telcos and associate members who have attended the required and elective courses since 2000. It does not indicate mastery of the educational content. Only courses offered by NTCA may be used to earn the certificate.
