JOHNSTOWN, Pa., June 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Edward J. Sheehan, Jr., President & Chief Executive Officer of Concurrent Technologies Corporation (CTC), announced today that CTC has been awarded yet another ISO contract award, this time to provide ISO training to participants in the Department of Commerce's (DOC) Special American Business Internship Training (SABIT) program.

"CTC is very pleased to have been awarded this contract," said Mr. Sheehan.  "It represents our latest achievement as a leading provider of ISO consulting services and brings CTC's awarded value for ISO 9001-related services to $10 million."

ISO 9001, a family of standards for quality management systems (QMS), is maintained by ISO, the International Organization for Standardization, and is administered by accreditation and certification bodies.  A successful QMS ensures both current and future clients that they are guaranteed a high level of quality.  "Achieving ISO certification is a way to communicate a company's consistently high standards in an international market place," explained Kamal Gella, CTC Program Manager.  "This is why ISO training is so important in an internship training program like the DOC's."

CTC has a long ISO 9001 history, from providing auditing and training services to a variety of Federal entities to CTC's own certification.  "In fact, CTC was one of the first nonprofit research and development organizations to simultaneously certify to both the ISO 9001:2001 (Quality) and 14001:2004 (Environmental) international standards, achieving this distinction at our Johnstown location in 1998," said Mr. Sheehan.  "Since that time, additional CTC locations have been added to the certification scope."

CTC is a leader in assisting a broad spectrum of clients with their QMS, including implementing quality processes at the Kandahar Air Field in Afghanistan.  "We look forward to providing ISO consulting services to other organizations and assisting them with their quality programs," said Mr. Gella.
