“How can we help the growth of the AV Industry?” “What is AVIXA doing?”

These are questions we hear from our members … a lot.

Here's one way we're developing qualified AV professionals: partnering with education institutions. 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.

Here’s how you can work with AVIXA to get our curriculum in your school (or a school near you):

  1. Start the conversation with institutions in your area.
  2. Check out and share these resources with institutions.
  3. Discuss available curriculum options with AVIXA.
  4. Discuss and sign a non-disclosure agreement to explore AVIXA courses.
  5. Establish membership with AVIXA.
  6. Draft and sign a memorandum of understanding with AVIXA to obtain selected curriculum materials.
  7. 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.
