NCTI, the Colorado-based provider of cable and broadband technology training services, launched a newly-integrated learning platform alongside a new website and brand.
Those additions and changes come about six months after CEO Stacey Slaughter finalized a deal to acquire the company, known then as Jones/NCTI, from Jones International, the conglomerate founded by Glenn R. Jones, the cable and distance education pioneer who died last July.
On the product front, NCTI introduced AMP 2.0, an integrated, multi-device training platform for human resource professionals and frontline employees that ties in analytics, tracking tools, and training content. NCTI said the new platform is available to all its customers.
The new website features a new NCTI blog, called Converge, and applies a focus on product areas spanning Connected Home, Connected Business, Advanced Network, Technician Development, Customer Experience and Leadership Pathways, said the company, which recently opened its new corporate headquarters in Littleton.
“Industry consolidation, rapid technology advancements and fast-changing residential and business customer needs mean our MSO customers need to think about learning and development in new ways,” Slaughter said. “NCTI is supporting our fast-changing industry with a comprehensive approach that includes an emphasis on data-driven learning management and digital learning.”
“The new Amp experience unifies learning management, team and course administration, and learning activities into one intuitive, responsive and easy-to-use platform,” added David Hoyt, NCTI’s VP for client and student support. “ Leaders, training coordinators and human resource professionals gain a comprehensive view of learning and career progress across the enterprise. “
NCTI, founded in 1968, said it has trained nearly 500,000 frontline employees. It also offers an accredited college certificate and degree program through its partnership with Arapahoe Community College.
