Panasonic’s AV training academy has been accredited by AVIXA, allowing professional AV dealers and rental companies to gain renewal units inside the Certified Technology Specialist (CTS) programme.
AVIXA, and prior to that InfoComm International, has administered the CTS programme for more than 30 years, with more than 11,000 CTS holders, 500 of which are in the UK.
CTS holders are recognised as technology specialists within the industry, with part of the programme being a requirement for continuous learning.
As a result, CTS holders must regularly attend training courses to maintain their accreditation. From November 2017, attending Panasonic visual training courses will allow them to gain credits inside the programme.
“It’s a pleasure to welcome Panasonic as an RU Provider in Europe,” said Pamela Taggart, senior director of development Europe at AVIXA. “This RU Provider status represents its commitment to offering high quality accredited training. CTS is growing in Europe, and it is becoming increasingly important to stand out from the crowd. CTS is a proven credential that is bringing quantifiable benefits to businesses and individuals throughout the AV community, and this RU Provider status will add further value to Panasonic’s training.”
“Panasonic is able to provide the highest standard of visual trainings by delivering RU for AVIXA, enabling the participants to gain increased values,” said Siegmar Küll, Panasonic European training manager. “To take part in the Panasonic Visual academy and gain CTS points, Panasonic partners need to be registered to Panasonic’s Partner programme, bringing them a full set of additional benefits including access to free of charge online training modules and a full library of product information and technical files.”
