Extron Electronics is pleased to announce a new training offering, the School of Emerging Technologies. This three day school provides in-depth instruction designed to allow system designers and integrators to master the newest AV technologies within a short time span.

This training timeline and method ensures that students are thoroughly exposed to each technology and solution before moving on to the next.
