Explore the project phases and documentation associated with AV system design, as well as physics affecting the surrounding environment, such as human ergonomics, display and projection needs, and sound reinforcement.

"My reasons for taking AV Design Level 1 were to enhance my professional skills and to prepare for my CTS-D certification. While being in some aspect of video distribution for the past 7 years, it has been quite some time since I have been in a specifically AV design position and there have been many changes and improvements since then. I would absolutely recommend this course to anyone who wants to advance their career in the AV industry."
— Matthew Tonjes, CTS, DB Consulting Group Inc.
