TMA Five Diamond Sponsorship
The Monitoring Association (TMA) is a trade association that represents companies offering security (alarm) monitoring systems through a central station. It also represents companies that provide services and products to the industry. To learn more about the TMA, visit their website.
To become a TMA Five Diamond certified central station, every operator must complete the TMA Central Station Operator Level I Online course. For central stations that purchase Manitou or stages and would like to obtain their Five Diamond Certification, Bold Group will pay for the operators to take the TMA Operator Level I course.
The Bold Group TMA Five Diamond Program Sponsorship is available to any customers in the process of purchasing a new Manitou or stages alarm monitoring system.
The TMA Five Diamond Certification must be achieved within six months of the Manitou or stages purchase.
The customer wishing to achieve their TMA Five Diamond Certification must be a member of TMA; either a current or a new member.
The TMA Five Diamond Program Sponsorship must be documented on the Manitou or stages purchase contract.
Bold Group will pay for the number of operators the customer has employed during the time of contract signature to take the TMA Central Station Operator Level I Online course; maximum of 20 operators.
TMA requires that the TMA Five Diamond Certification must be renewed each year to remain active and current. Any operators who have not completed the TMA Central Station Operator Level I Online course (ex. new operators), must complete this course and become certified for the company to maintain their TMA Five Diamond status. In the event that the new Bold Group customer currently holds their TMA Five Diamond Certification, Bold Group will pay for any of the currently uncertified operators (maximum of 20 operators) to complete the TMA Central Station Operator Level I Online course so the customer can maintain their Five Diamond status.
