In our ever evolving industry it is vital to stay current with technology and trends to ensure our clients have the best mission critical audio/visual systems to meet their needs. Constant Technologies has long recognized the importance of staying up to date with industry best practices and an important element of our training for our design team includes classes and certification programs offered by Avixa.
Avixa is the trade association representing the professional audiovisual and information communications industries worldwide. Established in 1939, Avixa has more than 5,000 members, including manufacturers, systems integrators, dealers and distributors, independent consultants, programmers, end users and multimedia professionals from more than 80 countries.
Avixa also specializes in Audiovisual Education. Their courses are based on content developed by industry experts so their information is accurate and up-to-date. They report that 96% of students say that they use what they learn in class on the job.
“It is important for our engineers and designers to achieve and maintain Avixa’s coveted CTS and CTS-D certifications,” says Danny Sasseville, VP of Project Engineering at Constant Technologies. “These certifications set us apart in the industry and show our clients that we are current with industry accepted trends and will provide the best solution to fit their needs.”
Avixa offers several levels of their Certified Technology Specialist (CTS) Certification. The CTS covers areas such as creating, operating, and servicing audio visual solutions. It also covers conducting AV management activities that provide for the best audiovisual resolutions of the client’s needs, both on time and within budget. These skills are a key component to Constant’s success. We know that good communication saves time, energy and money. Our complex mission-critical installations take masterful coordination, precision and experience which make this type of training so important.
There are also certification levels for other A/V specialties. The CTS-D program is geared towards design and helps with skills to assess client’s needs, design audio/visual systems, prepare A/V documentation. As an integrator, Constant has access to a wide variety of system components and the CTS-D training helps our team to best assess the right design options for a client’s unique requirements.
“Taking the Avixa courses and acquiring the CTS-D certification gave me an advantage in the industry and helped me understand how important it is for our design and engineering team to pursue certifications,” continues Danny Sasseville. “Avixa’s designer track and CTS-D certification give us the tools we need to take our design and engineering department to the next level. This helps us grow our business by creating designs with such great levels of detail it reduced installation times and tightened our overhead.”
