Asia and Oceania
As an organisation, InfoComm International® has stayed one step ahead of this growth by offering a plethora of education initiatives to equip new professionals with the knowledge and skills to support the exploding new market segments. Since 2015, we have conducted nine CTS® Prep classes, launched a new three-day AV Installation Fabrication Training, and partnered with the Mumbai College to teach IT students AV basics.
These efforts are starting to come to fruition. The number of new CTS-certified professionals in India has grown from two in 2013 to 17 in 2015. And this year, 15 individuals have joined this elite group in a mere seven-month period.
We know that our work has only just begun. Join us at the InfoComm India trade show to learn more.

Committed to Education: AV Installation Skills Day and AV Innovators Forum for Secondary Education Professionals
It has been an active month so far for InfoComm in Oceania. With InfoComm Las Vegas barely around the corner, we headed back to Sydney to deliver AV Installation Skills Day on 29 June in the facilities of venue sponsor Madison Connective Technologies. In a workshop-like setup, students learned and practiced essential audiovisual installation skills to successfully perform cable termination techniques. At the end of the day, students commented on the high quality of instruction and course content, as well as on the hands-on and engaging teaching style. The overall feedback was very positive with requests to offer this one-day training course next year again.
Incessantly dedicated to helping advance AV career development within the education sector, InfoComm participated in the inaugural AV Innovators Forum hosted by Knox Grammar School on 15 June in Sydney. More than 50 IT and AV professionals from schools with different levels of AV resources gathered to share ideas and challenges, and to create a more formal group for future collaboration. InfoComm Regional Director Rod Brown, CTS-D, CTS-I, had the opportunity to inform attendees of InfoComm International member services and our commitment to education and training, which can play a pivotal role to career progress in AV. InfoComm International would like to congratulate Ben Caswell and his team from Knox Grammar School on this great initiative to support career development for AV professionals in the education sector.
