Audio visual technology and integration standards are changing fast, so keeping technology personnel up-to-date on training and product knowledge has become a significant challenge. Lack of training can lead to problems like miscommunication over technology needs, inadequate system testing and fine-tuning, delayed AV installations, and increased costs to fix or replace poor quality systems.
As a technology manager, you want to ensure your organization gets the right AV systems, that they perform as intended, and that they’re installed and integrated following industry best practices. Completing training such as Certified Quality Designer (CQD)-AV and Certified Quality Technician-AV (CQT) courses—and choosing AV installers and integrators who have earned these certifications as well—will help you create a Quality Management System (QMS) that ensures your AV system conforms to defined performance specifications using a process-based approach that ensures quality and facilitates continuous improvement.
CQD and CQT certifications are the first steps towards meeting your goal of ensuring AV systems are deployed as planned. To that end, CQD training will teach you how to prepare for and review a design to ensure the system will be built and installed in compliance with your expectations and industry best practices. CQT training prepares you to audit AV systems to verify performance and compliance with industry standards. CQD and CQT training also provide additional benefits, including:
Level 3 AV provides training opportunities that improve AV system performance, including the CQD and CQT certifications. These trainings last three days with a certification test on the final day. At the end of the course you will be prepared to perform audits and assessments of your AV system and to implement a QMS. Prerequisites include a CTS or four years’ experience in AV design and/or installation. Visit our registration site to find an upcoming training event near you.
