Education Takes The Spotlight

  • Education courses at InfoComm were a major destination, despite predictions that companies would cut back on training because of the difficult economy. “While it’s a smaller number or attendees than in years past, we’re pleased,” says Randal A. Lemke, Ph.D., Executive Director, InfoComm International. “It’s still important. Our education program continues to feature very vital and good courses.”
  • Four hundred people registered for the classes with the Institute of Professional Development, while InfoComm seminar courses exceeded 6500 registrants—an average of 65 students per classroom.
  • Lemke cites renewal units as a major reason for good course attendance. “With 9000 people certified by InfoComm, they’ve got to get their renewal units, and this is a way for them to take advantage of the Show and network at the same time.”
