Herman Integration Services (www.Herman-is.com), the leading provider of experienced technical labor resources to professional AV systems integrators nationwide, graduated its inaugural AV Bootcamp Training Class.
There no time like the present to start preparing for the summer onslaught of activity in the AV industry. Herman will start this summer with new, well-trained recruits. As part of a new corporate initiative, Herman Integration Services launched a week-long boot camp to bring new recruits to the AV industry and Herman.
The Herman Bootcamp curriculum focused on five main topics including: identifying common cable, terminating cable, mounting displays, installing low voltage rings, and installing speakers. In addition, the new recruits learned the business work flow from making an initial sale to the final billing.
“In the AV industry, it can be difficult to find enough technicians to keep up with demand, according to Chris Bianchet,” President of Herman Integration Services. “Our ability to continuously recruit quality technicians is critical to our growth strategy. As the leading subcontractor of AV technicians, we hold our techs to a high standard that creates demand for our services and repeat business. Therefore, we have sought out potential candidates from other industries and are training them in how Herman does business.”
“Learning techniques, tricks of the trade, and tips from industry professionals in person is invaluable, said Nick Garbien, Herman Bootcamp graduate. “Working in a simulated work environment provided real world scenarios that we will encounter on a daily basis. Oh, I got to meet the office gator, making my trip to Florida and boot camp complete.”
