2022 Reliable Controls Authorized Dealer awards

"We strive every day to exert a beneficial influence on the built environment, on the people who live within it every day, and on its impact on the planet. Reliable Controls can be successful in neither our mission nor our business without the engaged effort of our friends and partners in the Reliable Controls Authorized Dealer network around the world.

"Effective partnerships require mutual trust, support, and investment. This partnership is critical to us and something we do not take for granted. We are eager for opportunities to express our appreciation and to recognize those dealers who demonstrate exceptional engagement with Reliable Controls, commitment to their teams and customers, and an effective entrepreneurial spirit. The sustainable success of Reliable Controls is directly linked with that of Reliable Controls Authorized Dealers. As a team, we take action every day to benefit people, protect the planet, and make a little profit along the way. But most importantly, together Reliable Controls and Reliable Controls Authorized Dealers are people and technology you can rely on."

—Levi Tully, executive vice president of sales

The Education award recognizes exceptional corporate dedication to training. We use a secret algorithm that creates fair conditions for all dealers, small and large, and considers these criteria:

  • Number of students sent to RCAD training
  • Number of students who have achieved Level 3 certification
  • Number of eLearning exams passed
  • Number of students who attended other classes
    (for example, advanced BACnet, sales training)
  • Number of users sent to operator training

"It is always interesting and enlightening each time I sit down to look at training participation and determine who will be the recipient of the annual training award. I’m never sure which dealer is going to step up and show extraordinary dedication and investment in training and leveling up the skills of everyone in their business. This year’s recipient is from my hometown of Fort Collins, Colorado. Colorado Controls completed the most eLearning, attended the most instructor-led training, and made excellent use of the operator training videos. It is with great appreciation that I thank and recognize Colorado Controls with the 2022 Reliable Controls Education award."
—Nathan Wilson, Training manager
