AVIXA en Directo, a free Spanish training programme launched in April, has seen more than 2,300 professionals from Spain and Latin America at one of its 15 online sessions held in its first month. The programme is aimed at professionals and students who want to continue learning from home during the COVID‑19 quarantine.

"We are delighted with the tremendous interest this initiative is taking in the Spanish‑speaking AV community around the world," says Sarah Joyce, Chief Global Officer of AVIXA. “The challenging times brought about by the pandemic and the enforced stay at home for so many, has also provided an opportunity to train and acquire new knowledge that improves our professional possibilities. At AVIXA, we are convinced that knowledge is an inexhaustible source of inspiration that will help us emerge stronger from this situation.”

Since March, AVIXA has developed many virtual opportunities — conducted in a range of languages — that are designed to help AV professionals grow their professional and personal skills, giving members the chance to participate in events or activities from home.
