"I recently accepted my current job as a Video Teleconference Coordinator; however, I only had a little AV and videoconferencing experience. My management thought it would be good for me to go take AVIXA's Installation 2: Setup and Verification. The course and the instructor were great. It seemed like the level of material and instruction were all appropriate. I would recommend this course to my colleagues."
— Mike Mascola, NOAA
