Almo Professional A/V, a commercial AV distributor with global reach, announced it is the first distributor to offer Barco ClickShare Certified Technician training. Taking place on June 19 and June 20 at the new Almo Professional A/V office in Baltimore MD, the training is worth three AVIXA CTS Renewal Units (RUs). Participants in the June 19 session can earn a Certified Specialist designation, while those in the June 20 session can become Certified Technical Experts. The Baltimore training sessions are being led by Rob Ziv, Director of Business Development for Almo Professional A/V.
According to Ziv, “Resellers and integrators who want to set themselves apart from the competition while earning valuable CTS RUs should take advantage of this opportunity to become Barco ClickShare certified.” He continued, “During the one day training, participants are going to master new technologies, develop new skills and refresh their knowledge of Barco products. As a result, they will earn the reputation as a Barco-certified business partner, while providing a competitive advantage and in-house expertise, all of which increase visibility and business potential.”
The training sessions take place from 9am to 5pm with lunch included. Additional dates are being planned for Almo-led training sessions in Dallas TX, Duluth MN, Ft. Lauderdale FL, Long Island NY, Philadelphia PA and Sacramento CA.
The Barco Certified Specialist training session incorporates details on ClickShare functionality, installation, management and configuration and is considered more of an introduction course. It includes integration in the corporate network, management suite use, security, configuration, Wi-Fi management and tips and tricks.
The Barco Certified Technical Expert training session includes ClickShare installation, management and configuration on a deeper level through hands-on exercises. This training provides expert ClickShare knowledge for installation engineers, IT profiles and others interested in Barco, including partners, resellers and large end users. Participants must hold the Barco Certified Specialist designation as a prerequisite.
