Seeking a position as a Master Field Technician or Management in the Electronic Security / Fire Life Safety Industry where my technical background, industry field experience, management background and product knowledge will be used effectively towards the growth of company profits and market share. I am looking to retire with a company that will acknowledge my work ethics and promote from within. I have experience in UL cert CS and systems. Have knowledge in NFPA 72 Life Safety Codes and NEC. that is because there is to many hands in the fire. I enjoy my customers and the chance to see the southern region. I am not looking for a new job unless a company is looking to grow, treat customers with respect and can offer me a better package. My biggest love is to teach and train. F/A's can be cut back tremendously and cost effective in the same way. I am looking more towards a management job and prefer to have a title of Master Tech. I also want to get my QA lic., NICET and other titles again. I want to be with a company willing to grow and open to suggestions. I do not mind driving long distances to fix systems as long as I have a company that backs me 100% when I give them 120%.

Alarm Tech01/1978 to 01/2001 San Diego Alarm Company – Memphis, TN
after receiving my honorable discharge in Feb.
of 1978, US Navy, Viet Nam Vet) in April 1978.
I spent 4 years as an apprentice under a Viet Nam Vets apprenticeship program.
I left San Diego two years later to my home in Memphis Tenn.
I joined with Security Consultants and became the installation Manager in 2 years.
I was instrumental in building a UL Certified CS and all the local communication hook up's with the Memphis 911 office.
I also supervised the installation of all UL required systems for jewelry stores to required fire systems.

I have experience in 90 % of any panel made fire, Burg Or access control.
And well versed in DVR's and hookup for broadband, setting IP's.
In 1993 Licensing laws changed in Tennessee and required alarm companies to license with the state and not local authorities.
They also required the DQA.
Shortly after the new law was in effect I was offered a job as a DQA.
I could have been grandfathered in but that never sit well with me.
I preferred to take the test and passed.
The company I joined, was from Nashville, and they were selling and installing about 15 jobs a week.
In a years time I built the installation dept up from 2 installer's to 10 and was 98% satisfactorily installing "Free" security systems a week.
Now back then the contracts sold for about 1250 average.
I also scheduled jobs being sold by 32 salesmen and helped motivate 35 telemarketers along with determining what area would be the best area's to call etc.
The company eventually sold out to World Wide Security out of Nashville.
They moved me and my horses to Nashville and that company lasted less than a year.
This ended in 1998.
After that I hired out to companies as a DQA to help them start an alarm company, this happened twice and I will never do that again.
It takes a lot more than what most people think.
And to be legal, it takes more no short cuts or quick money schemes.
I was snake bit and gun shy about the alarm business and the "free" security system.
