Workforce Development Program | AVIXA

AV professionals are in the experience business — combining content, space and technology to craft an event, communicate a message, elicit a response, create an understanding, give people a reason to cheer or move them to tears. Many students are looking into pathways that don't require degrees.

Together, we can help students find a great job in AV.
