With the breadth of Kramer's experience and expertise in providing industry leading technical training and education, we look forward to delivering relevant and critical content throughout the year."
"At Kramer Electronics we believe whole-heartedly in education," said Malissa Dillman, training and education manager at Kramer Electronics USA. "We are on a mission to teach to as many people as possible the newest technologies and principles all Pro AV professionals should know in order to best design, sell, and install profitable digital AV systems in today's market. Partnering with WAVE to help us accomplish this goal is a tremendous privilege. WAVE is one of the most active and most important groups in the AV market today."
