InfoComm Offers New AV Certificate Program

InfoComm-Recognized AV Technologist Certificate Program Acknowledges Essential Audiovisual Knowledge

FAIRFAX, VA – February 1, 2010 – InfoComm International, the trade association representing the commercial audiovisual industry, is releasing a new certificate program aimed at recognizing those who have demonstrated basic competency in the audiovisual field. The InfoComm-Recognized AV Technologist certificate program allows employers to verify the basic level of entry-level AV personnel, while providing industry newcomers and non-technical personnel a way to showcase what they have learned.

To earn a certificate, AV professionals must score 80 percent or above on a new, online test which is taken at the desktop, not at a testing center. Content for the test is based entirely on the newly-updated course, Essentials of AV Technology Online. “We are debuting the InfoComm-Recognized AV Technologist certificate program to bridge the gap between those just starting in the industry and InfoComm’s rigorous Certified Technology Specialist program,” said Randal A. Lemke, Ph.D., InfoComm Executive Director and CEO. “AV employers need a way to quickly train and assess new hires, and this new program provides a way to establish basic AV competency. It is our hope that as AV professionals who secure this certificate gain more experience they will develop into candidates for the more demanding CTS® program that is accredited by ANSI to the ISO/IEC 17024 standard.”

The hour-long test costs $150 for members and $200 for non-members. The fee includes the opportunity to take the online test three times in a 30-day period. Essentials of AV Technology Online costs $99 for members, $150 for non-members. Members can use InfoComm EduBucks to pay for the full cost of the Essentials of AV Technology Online course, but not for the test.
