InfoComm: AV Industry Organization and Online Training
InfoComm is the trade association for the professional audiovisual (AV) communications industry worldwide. InfoComm is the founder of InfoComm International, the largest convention of AV systems integration and communications professionals who come to learn about the latest technologies, products, services and applications.
InfoComm is the industry leader in education and certification for AV professionals. The industry standard for professional expertise is InfoComm’s certified technology specialist (CTS) designation. InfoComm also offers information services including market intelligence, news, and an online database of over 80,000 AV products.
IATSE is now an Organizational Member of InfoComm. That means if you are a member of Local 22, you can access 6 InfoComm online classes free of charge. For complete instructions for how to register for classes through the IA and InfoComm, click this LINK.
IATSE Local 22 Training has been a member of InfoComm and through that membership we have provided discounts to their online courses that we passed on to you. At this time we are working to extend those discounts, but since the International has started their new contract with InfoComm, we are temporarily not able to do that. Stay tuned.
InfoComm course information:
InfoComm does have an online version of their CTS Certification Prep class, but that requires a whole different setup. It is on their 5-week schedule and requires attendance at weekly webinars. If you are interested in it, please contact the Training Director.
There are 5 courses that are of most interest to us:
After successfully completing any of the courses, we should be contacted by InfoComm with that information for our database, but please let us know on your own as well. That information can be used by our call steward to increase your chances of getting hired for AV jobs. Some of the courses also make you eligible to take InfoComm’s certification exams. Contact us for information about reducing the rates for those exams.
