20|20 are delighted to have signed an agreement with The Association of Controls Management (TAOCM), supporting efforts in providing professional recognition and best industry standards & practices for Controls Management.
TAOCM was set up to create a centre of excellence for the Controls Management community. There are a variety of membership routes available which all provide members with access to a wide range of training, resources and research opportunities as well as continued professional development. TAOCM allows members credentials to be aligned with other professionals in the industry whilst recognising their commitment to professional excellence and integrity.
The agreement will see 20|20 become the recommend training partner for TAOCM, providing a variety of ECITB accredited courses including Certificate in Project Controls and the Management & Development Leadership Programme.
Michael Morrice, who heads up TAOCM explained the importance of creating partnerships like this. “TAOCM was created as it was recognised that there were lots of people in the Project Controls industry who were looking for accredited training and a refined continued development pathway. There has never been a professional organisation looking after planning & controls individuals and now we can do this because of important partnerships like this. By partnering with organisations like 20|20 we can ensure we are delivering all aspects of our members needs”
Tony Marks, CEO of 20|20 also noted “As Project Controls is an element of Project Management there has always been an assumption that people will progress to become Project Managers. There has been a glaring gap in recognising the needs of thousands of people in the Controls industry and it is great to see it being recognised as a career in its own right. 20|20 are delighted to be a partner of the association and we hope it brings a positive message to the Project Controls community.”
