At Island Lighting & Power Systems, one of our core values is maintaining a position of respect and trust in the industry through hard work, dedication and perseverance. It’s not always an easy task in an ever changing industry but it’s a value that we strongly believe in. To maintain this level of trust with our clients and partners in the field we must constantly seek to perfect our craft. Professional development and Training is a staple at ILP. We want our employees to feel that they have the skills and resources necessary to tackle any job. We plan bi-monthly training sessions on topics that are relevant to the trade as well as safety or other issues that have come up on job sites and need to be addressed. We are able to bring in trained professionals for skill sessions or we have an employee lead a session in an effort to build camaraderie as well.
We recently had two employees complete the Pfisterer training right her in Norfolk. They are certified as Medium Voltage Cable Jointers on specific Pfisterer cable systems, which is a significant gain for our company. We are also proud to announce two new memberships and partnerships for our company. The first being with 3M and their QECC program, Qualified Electrical Contractor Program. Secondly, we are pleased to have been verified as a Veterans Small Business Owned Company.
At ILP, we feel it is essential to continue to grow and expand and better ourselves as both a company and individuals. We are able to do this through trainings, partnerships and giving back to the community at large.
