Wondering how you can help the growth of the AV Industry?  
 
Here are a few key ways you can help:

   1. Share the story of AV careers at local schools in your area
   2. Visit local career fairs or opportunities to showcase your company as a leader in the industry
   3. Partner with maker-spaces, coding camps, STEM programs, etc. in your region 
   4. Work with AVIXA to get our curriculum in your school (or a school near you) 

Use these resources to tell the story of AV careers: 

    1. Exploring AV Careers Presentation 
    2. Exploring AV Careers Brochure 
    3. AV Fast Facts 
    4. Industry Market Research

AVIXA and its foundation also partner with education institutions to develop a larger pool of qualified AV professionals. These collaborative relationships build pathways for more students to enter our industry. 

Through these programs, AVIXA provides schools with curriculum that introduces students to fundamentals of audio, video, networking, and other necessary skills for providing AV solutions and experiences. AVIXA will also give students the resources needed to gain their CTS® certification before entering the AV workforce. 

It all starts with a few simple steps: 

  1. Start the conversation with institutions in your area.
  2. Share the career resources above with faculty, administrators, and students  
  3. Discuss available curriculum options with AVIXA.
  4. Provide career support for students who complete the program.

Don’t worry, you’re not in this alone. AVIXA will be there every step of the way.
