Commitment is a non-profilt organization established June 1991 thru 2005 in response to the needs of unemployed individuals in the Washington,
DC and surrounding metropolitan
area. Its founders saw the tremendous future in the telecommunications
industry and had faith in the potential capabilities of inner-city residents
to achieve the skills necessary to compete for jobs in this highly competitive
technical arena. As a result, we established a comprehensive job training
and education program to employ low-income, unemployed and underemployed
individuals in the telecommunications trades.
For the past
thirteen years, Capital Committment has trained and placed over
2,000 graduates within the telecommunications industry. Of these graduates,
75% were former
social service recipients receiving payments totaling over $10 Million.
As a direct result of this employment, over $20 Million in new income has
been generated, creating an economic swing of over $30 Million.
Now as locally
and nationally telecommuntions training leader, Capital Commitment provides
classroom and lab instruction in "Telephone
Installation, Maintenance, and Repair" and is a BICSI certified trainer.
Capital Commitment over the past 10 years has come from a variety
of sources, but primarily from the Telco sector through sources such as
and Verizon. WIth the downturn of the telecommunications market, continued
funding by Industry partners has been minimal, in order to support the
non-profit school, Capital Commitment formed Capital Commitment
Solutions, LLC., a-for profit subsidiary, which utilized graduates
to perform premise-wiring installation.
and graduates of Capital Commitment are commmited to Quality, Safety,
and Reliability. Because of our stringent screening, orientation, and quality
control procedures, we are confident that the skills and professionalism
of our graduates will meet the need in any and all installation projects.
