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.

Benefits For Students:

  • AV is a growing industry
  • Day-to-day work can differ and be more exciting
  • Students don't have to attend a traditional university to be successful

Help Your Students Get Involved:

  • Include AV components in lesson plans
  • Encourage AV in the curriculum
  • Provide resources linked to the industry
  • Recommend AVIXA's student membership

How You Can Get Involved:

  • Host an event at your school
  • Start a job shadow or internship program
  • Show students behind the scenes
  • Introduce schools to Tech Crew
  • Offer site visits
  • Partner with the AVIXA Foundation

"We were looking to create a new program to address these needs when we first connected with AVIXA. It turned out to be a perfect match. Our plan is to become the premier site for AV technician training in New England. There is a clear demand and great jobs waiting."
