MW is excited to formally recognize yet another of Josh Newton’s achievements. Josh has earned the ESCE Design Certification offered by Ekahau. This professional design certification sets Josh apart as a specialist in the field of Wi-Fi network design, placing him within a very small group of talented individuals who have earned this certification.
Why is the ECSE Design Certification important to MW?
This designation is limited to only those professionals willing to make the effort to gain the knowledge and experience needed to complete the certification process. The ECSE Design certification is offered by a company called Ekahau, which is the leading design software for wireless networking systems. The certification is for proficiency in designing wireless networks in a variety of different building types and signals to our clients that as an experienced technology designer, Josh has the skills necessary to manage all aspects of Wi-Fi lifecycle management, including (but not limited to) RF fundamentals, predictive analysis, and spectrum analysis. Being effective in this role requires Josh to listen carefully to assess his clients’ needs and works collaboratively with them to understand the pros and cons of the technological options available. Based on their requests, Josh develops creative, efficient designs that respond to his clients’ priorities and exceed their expectations. Certification demonstrates a commitment to professional growth in the industry and is strongly supported by MW.
What is so great about Josh?
Since arriving at MW in 2007, upon graduation from Spokane Community College, Josh has demonstrated a learn-it-all approach to professional growth. Early in his career with MW, Josh developed a broad range of telecommunications design expertise, including the design of traditional voice and data networks, passive optical networks (PON), CATV distribution, audio/visual, fire alarm, low voltage lighting control, and security systems for numerous types of projects. This learn-it-all approach is evident by his attainment of the RCDD (Registered Communications Distribution Designer) designation in 2014, the CTS-D Certification in 2020, and now the ECSE Design Certification. Since joining MW more than 13 years ago, Josh has developed experience designing systems for K-12 education, higher education, healthcare, office, commercial, government, and institutional facilities in both the public and private sectors.
Once again, congratulations to Josh as he continues to set the standard for audiovisual design excellence at MW.
