Middle Atlantic Celebrates AV Month with Training Program

Middle Atlantic Products is supporting InfoComm’s AV Month with an extensive education program designed to train on AV technologies, while delivering seven InfoComm CTS, BICSI, and AIA credits in 31 days.

  • Every week during AV Month, Middle Atlantic will offer an industry-certified webinar from Joe Cornwall, technology evangelist, 2014 InfoComm Educator of the Year, and full-time InfoComm faculty member.

The AV Academy industry-certified courses will be streamed live for those who cannot attend in person. Participants can register for the weekly webinars and the AV Academy webinars at online here.
