The Value of CTS in a Fast-Growing Market

It's coincidental, but significant, that the first two people to gain their CTS®-I and CTS-D qualifications in 2016 hail from India. T. S. Gopalakrishnan, CTS-I, and Leo Joseph Thomas, CTS-D, CTS-I, work for different companies but are linked by the importance they place on training and education in a country where little to no formalized education is available in the field of AV. Read about their journey in the fast-growing Indian AV industry.
