InfoComm to Offer Professional Development Consulting at ISE 2016
Are you going to Amsterdam for Integrated Systems Europe Feb. 9-12? InfoComm International will be offering free professional development consultations. The consultations will be conducted by InfoComm's Europe-based and other international staff with the goal of helping individuals and companies identify courses of study for advancing their careers and businesses.
The in-person, one-on-one consultations at ISE will run approximately 20 minutes each. Participants will receive a tailored plan of training opportunities not only from InfoComm, but also from others sources inside and outside the AV industry, including courses devoted to information technology and networking, as well as business management. Many of the education sources that are part of InfoComm's offering deliver free and low-cost training.
There are two ways for ISE 2016 attendees to set up a consultation: Make an appointment ahead of time or sign up in person during ISE at either the InfoComm FlashTrack stand 12-N100 or at the InfoComm stand 11-N100. The free, 20-minute consultations will be held at the InfoComm stand 11-N100.
InfoComm's professional development consultations are part of the comprehensive program planned for ISE 2016. The association's education and training lineup will feature sessions in three different formats: InfoComm Conferences, InfoComm MasterClasses and InfoComm FlashTracks. The different formats allow attendees to choose from half-day, three-hour, or quick 20-minute courses and presentations on a wide range of industry topics. All sessions provide renewal units toward the Certified Technology Specialist™ (CTS®) certification.
