DRTC FAA Work Project location honored

Dale Rogers Training Center’s (DRTC) AMP-300 Facility Services Staff, which is the building and maintenance division at the nonprofit’s FAA contract, was honored with the 2017 Keller-Sullivan Award.

The National Coalition of Federal Aviation Employees with Disabilities (NCFAED) presents the award annually to honor employees or supports who go, “above and beyond their expected responsibilities to achieve unique hiring, promotion or advancement results for those who struggle daily with a physical or mental disability.”

Approximately 36 of DRTC’s 50 FAA contract employees have a documented disability, and they earn above minimum wage while receiving excellent benefits. The team is responsible for cleaning 88 buildings at Mike Monroney Aeronautical Center.

The award presented to contract staff was made at Prism Place, a division of Dale Rogers Training Center specializing in customer acrylic awards, plaques, trophies, medals, promotional items and more.

Branding your business

Dale Rogers Training Center, Inc. (DRTC) recently opened its doors for state agencies and businesses around the metro to learn more about branding items through Prism Place, a division of DRTC, which provides training and jobs for people with disabilities.

Some of the nation’s top promotional items suppliers setup various displays at the nonprofit’s main campus for the Dale Rogers Training Center Round-Up, showing attendees the newest items. Many left with new ideas to help advance their agency’s/company’s brand.

Prism Place places orders through suppliers, who then ship the items to DRTC. The “Swag Team,” comprised of people with disabilities, performs a rigorous quality check on every item, which is not the industry norm; typically, promotional items are “drop shipped” to the customer where errors with the order may be discovered. DRTC’s Swag Team catches these issues before the customer receives the order and works to fix any errors that may arise.

Kathy, Shon and Waneta, members of the Swag Team, explained to attendees why they would reject various items, from incomplete logo, to non-functioning zippers, to missing components and more.

Visitors also toured parts of the nonprofit agency, learning more about awards and trophies, also through Prism Place, as well as picture framing division Wyman Frame, and Robin’s Corner Gift Shop, featuring items packaged/assembled by people with disabilities.

Dale Rogers Training Center, and its divisions, are open Monday-Friday, from 8:00am-5:00pm. To schedule a tour, please email pr@drtc.org.
