The Top 100 is compiled by Kerrigan Media International and Military Training Technology magazine, and provides a listing of companies that have made a significant impact in the military training industry during the past year.
Military Training Technology invited almost 300 candidates to provide information for the awards and and also invited any interested companies to apply. Based on submissions and additional information, the publication's editorial board and a panel of independent experts then selected 100 winners. Companies were selected based on various criteria, which, in part, included total military sales, end-user feedback, innovations and need for the solution.
Kerrigan cited KITCO for its accomplishments in the field of military training: "With the exponential increase of fiber optics across the military community, training for service and maintenance is more necessary.
The U.S. Navy has again selected KITCO as the exclusive provider of the Fiber Optic Maintenance Technician Course, and the course is the only Naval Education and Training Command (NETC) approved fiber optic training course. KITCO also trains Navy and Coast Guard sailors, Army and Marine Corps warfighters, defense contractors and shipyard employees on fiber optic theory."
