Message From the Directors

Dear Friends,

Have you wondered how to make your company stand out from the rest? Have you thought about InfoComm’s AV Providers of Excellence (APEx) program?

Based in Hong Kong, ihD specialises in audiovisual design, consultancy and project management. ihD has met all of the requirements to become a participant of the program and represents the AV industry with great pride in the Asia region.

Bringing AV Training to BECIL

BECIL (logo)

At last month's InfoComm India show in Mumbai, InfoComm signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Broadcast Engineering Consultants India Limited (BECIL) — A Government of India Enterprise under the Ministry of Information & Broadcasting. This marks a landmark step by InfoComm in the development of the AV industry in India by recognizing the importance of and implementing AV skills development throughout the region.

This agreement will provide BECIL with resources to train students and representatives from the industry with hands-on AV Installation skills through their 12 training centers in India. Installation Skills Day training will prepare candidates to perform basic AV installation tasks in their jobs. Students will acquire new skills in preparing, terminating and pulling cable during hands-on laboratory sessions. They will also learn circuit theory, conduit capacity, signal separation, earthing and loudspeaker installation. This program will help build their skill set for a rewarding career in AV installation. InfoComm has developed the training content and will train the trainers for the initiative. The program will begin in 2016.

In 2015, InfoComm organized AV Installation training at various locations in India and trained more than 250 employees at InfoComm member companies.

Going Online and Beyond in India

Bangalore

InfoComm hosted a session on how to prepare for the CTS exam on 23 Sept. at My Fortune Hotel in Bangalore. The event was attended by 37 professionals seeking insight and strategy in approaching the CTS exam. Students found the session, presented by InfoComm instructor T.S. Gopalakrishnan, CTS®, very interactive and took the opportunity to communicate with faculty for advice.

Along with the CTS workshop, InfoComm also organized a workshop in which attendees — specifically those in human resources — learned more about InfoComm's online education resources. The workshop was designed to bring awareness and help orient company HR departments with online resources. Manoj Kumar, Program Coordinator for InfoComm, explained to HR attendees the steps for arranging InfoComm education after a new employee joins an organization. Gaurab Majumdar, InfoComm's India Country Manager, said the group wants more such programs.

"InfoComm's new program for HR orientation is a welcome initiative. It helped us to know more about InfoComm online resources and I could meet other HR people from AV industry," said attendee Kavitha N. Kishore, Manager of Human Resources at Ideas Ahead AV Solutions Pvt. Ltd. "I want my staff to be included in InfoComm online courses."

InfoComm provides many professional development resources, both online and in-person. Learn about what is available.
