The Association for Quality in Audiovisual, AQAV, has announced a partnership with AV User Group, a non-profit organisation with a thriving community of over 1500 members of AV end user professionals benefiting from each other’s extensive knowledge and experiences. As part of the newly formalised collaboration between the two organisations, AV User Group members will have access to AQAV training and certification tracks at a significantly discounted price.
Widely regarded as the audiovisual industry’s only quality standards training and certification organisation, AQAV’s educational tracks will offer AV User Group members the knowledge and understanding of how to ensure consistent quality of the systems that they design, install or otherwise maintain.
Mario Maltese, founder of AQAV, is thrilled at the prospect of what this partnership means for AV users globally, saying: “We are convinced that AV User Group members, when trained, will see immediate results related to greater efficiency and cost savings in systems design and installation, documentation with which to easily train staff and users, and the ability to hold service providers accountable, consistently.”
Owen Ellis, chairman of the AV User Group (pictured), indicated that their motivation to form this partnership was to not just support the end user with training of this type but to raise standards within our industry. Ellis commented: “Knowledgeable, educated end users demand higher standards from their suppliers. This is generally where raising industry standards begins.”
