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.
