BICSI announces new ITS credential
BICSI offers a new credential for information transport systems professionals.
BICSI , the association supporting the information transport systems (ITS) industry with information, education, and knowledge assessment, announces the name of a brand new credential to be released next year. The credential allows individuals with formal education and industry-related qualifications to obtain a BICSI information transport systems credential.
Following an opportunity at the 2008 BICSI Fall Conference for BICSI credential holders to suggest names for this new credential, six options were selected by industry experts. The balloting for the new name was held in February 2009 and over 2,000 votes were captured.
The application process and requirements for the BICSI Registered Information Transport Professional (RITP) credential will be announced shortly. However, interested professionals can get a head start on the process by completing the ITS Fundamentals exam that is currently available online through BICSI CONNECT. Also available through BICSI CONNECT are five ITS Fundamentals courses designed to prepare applicants for the ITS Fundamentals exam.

2012 Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
