Brendan Keegans Prove Your AV Knowledge

"My main reason for participation in the AV Technologist Certificate program was to… demonstrate my knowledge of the AV industry," said Brendan Keegans, CTS, of U.K.-based integrator proAV. "It reinforces your technical credibility to an employer or client when you can demonstrate industry-recognized qualification. Aside from that, it’s an excellent way to review some foundational knowledge and refresh the memory."

Free for InfoComm members, the InfoComm-Recognized AV Technologist Test was developed to provide a common AV vocabulary and a bridge to the ANSI-accredited Certified Technology Specialist™ credential. Test for your certificate.
