Excel in AV

To advance in the industry, you need a solid understanding of the fundamentals of AV. With a variety of general knowledge courses, AVIXA has an training track to help you meet your career goals.

As a first step, everyone in AV should take Quick Start to the AV Industry Online for an overview of the industry. After you've completed Quick Start, or if you already know how the industry works, enroll in Essentials of AV Technology Online for a more technical background. Plus, both of these courses are free for AVIXA members.

To verify your knowledge, take the AV Technologist Test — free for AVIXA members. This 100-question test covers material from Essentials of AV Technology and can act as a bridge to more training and preparation for the CTS exam. After successfully completing the test, you'll receive a certificate to show employers.
