My name is Charles Aulner and I founded National Training Center (NTC) in 2001. It would be a great story if the start of NTC was solely based in providing the best possible training for our industry. In truth however, I started NTC because I lost my job and I needed work. I started NTC on something less than a shoestring budget.
I really developed a passion for training in the US Military. As a Captain in the Military Police Corps, I was responsible for training the soldiers under my command. Additionally, I was tasked with training all reserve units deploying to the middle east. Developing and conducting effective training was my primary focus.
After serving my country, I sought employment in the Low Voltage Systems industry. I was shocked at the lack of quality training available to industry professionals. As a result, I developed and conducted training for company employees. I was selected for a distribution branch manager position. I developed and conducted training for my dealer base. All along the way in this career path, I was fortunate to develop my technical knowledge as well.
My experiences in the Military, and throughout my career path in the industry set the stage for a shift to training. Our industry needed high quality training programs, and I held the belief that I had something valuable to contribute. It started with training in fire alarm systems.
Since the founding of NTC, we have developed a team of training professionals and support staff second to none in our industry. Our training has expanded to Low Voltage Security Systems and Fire Protection Systems. We have published the most recognized reference books in the industry. We have truly developed into the premier provider of training in our industry. Career professionals depend on our training services and products to help drive their companies to greater success. We offer training in a Live or Virtual Classroom and online format. All of us at NTC are committed to providing the Very Best in Training.
