ATEK Scoops Enterprise Award
ATEK received "Best New Entrant" award in the National Enterprise Award, County Competition. County Manager and chairman of the Tipperary North County Enterprise Board, Mr Terry Ó Niadh presented Rob Mullane with a commemorative trophy and certificate of achievement. A judging panel choose from 6 finalists awarding marks for employment potential, marketing and financial strengths, innovation, technology, exports, environmental and business growth. Rob Mullane is very happy to accept this award on behalf of ATEK and would like to extend a special words of thanks to the Tipperary North Enterprise board for their support and contribution to ATEK since its establishment in 2004.
It has come to the attention of ATEK training services that there are unauthorised IPC certificates
being awarded to individuals in the Irish Electronics Industry.
The worrying factor is that firstly unauthorised unregistered
IPC Trainers may award them and secondly certificates are
being awarded without following IPC's program policies e.g.
following IPC's course structure and also the exam procedures.
This is a huge concern as this may consequently lead to poor
quality product and poor customer relations. The certificates
now come with individual serial numbers and can be checked
by IPC to identify their validity and also their origin. If
you are concerned about the certification received, please
contact ATEK immediately and we on your
behalf will check their validation and ensure that the correct
awarding of certification procedure has been followed. Remember
to always ask for a copy of the IPC Trainer's own certificate
prior to commencement of training of your personnel.
