You can find everything you need to make it all happen – for your team or your own career – with AVIXA training.

Specialized Training

AV is not ones and zeroes… it’s diverse and complex. An AV system starts with a great design. That design is transformed into a working system. Once it’s designed and installed, it needs to be maintained and managed. A lot of work happens with every AV system, from the smallest to the most complex.

Trying to figure out where to begin your training? We’ve tried to make it easier with tracks. If you’re new to the industry, start with General Knowledge. If you have been in AV for a while, go straight to the track that makes sense — there’s plenty here to expand your knowledge.

You may know more than you think! Take the AV Technologist Test to certify your knowledge of core AV concepts! Free for Premium and Elite AVIXA® members.

Skills Credentials

What are skills credentials? AVIXA’s Skills Credentials are digital badges that show you’ve mastered an important skill in AV. Right now there are four credentials.

How do they differ from certification? Skills Credentials are not certifications. They are a demonstration of your ability in one particular area. They are often based on just one topic or standard.

How long does it take to get each one? That all depends on the credential you are taking. The current offerings range in estimated time spent from 4 to 7 hours of work.
