AVIXA has reported that there are now 1,000 AV professionals with a Certified Technology Specialist (CTS) certification in Europe. For more than 30 years, AVIXA has administered the CTS program, which is an AV professional credential recognized worldwide. There are currently more than 12,000 CTS holders, and over 2,000 of those are CTS-D or CTS-I holders.
“This marks a significant milestone in AVIXA’s development in the European market,” Chris Lavelle, Senior Director of Development Europe, AVIXA, said. “The AV market is flourishing in the region, and we are thrilled that many industry members are committing to professional development. CTS holders across Europe are reaping the benefits of their hard work, with the program allowing dedicated AV professionals to stand out from the crowd and prove their expertise. We would like to congratulate all our CTS holders for achieving this hard-earned credential, and we look forward to seeing them utilize their knowledge to deliver outstanding integrated experiences.”
Many CTS holders in Europe are also progressing further in their AV education and going on to achieve specialized credentials: CTS-D (design) or CTS-I (installation). All three certifications are ANSI accredited under the International Organization of Standardization (ISO), and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) ISO/IEC 17024:2012 General Requirements for Bodies Operating Certification Schemes of Persons program.
