Wasting no time with his New Year’s resolutions, Joel Vugteveen (pictured), CTS, Project Manager at Chicago-based installer TVTI, started the year with his nose in a study guide. On Jan. 2, the celebration began, as Vugteveen became the first person in the world to earn his Certified Technology Specialist™ (CTS) certification in 2016. "For me, it was more a validation of the skills that I have and a certification that I do know these things," he says. "It’s still a little new, but I like having ‘CTS’ added to my name and, of course, the pay raise." Read his story.
