InfoComm International has signed an agreement with e-sharp Consultancy of the United Arab Emirates to offer AV courses in the Middle East. Their first official joint education session will be a one-day InfoComm AV Installation Skills Day training workshop in Dubai on December 10.
Founded in 2005, e-sharp is a specialized training consultancy bringing information and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure and AV training to clients in the Middle East, Africa and the Indian Subcontinent. e-sharp is an approved training facility for the Fiber Optic Association CFOT certification, BICSI certifications and Fluke Networks Certified Cabling Test Technician (CCTT) program.
“The convergence of technologies (audio, video, voice, data, telecom and the internet) is creating an urgent demand for specialized education like AV and cabling installation,” said Kandasamy Ganesan, Managing Director at e-sharp Consultancy. “As market verticals like construction, hospitality, healthcare and education continue their growth, the need for training will rise, as well.”
Jonathan Seller, InfoComm’s Senior Director of Development for the Asia-Pacific region, added, “More and more companies are recognizing the value of hiring certified and trained talent, and this inspired us to create a better structure for offering regular trainings. Over the past year, InfoComm has collaborated with e-sharp in hosting several successful training sessions, from our CTS Prep course to Networked Audiovisual Systems. We look forward to furthering this partnership and growing our support for the region.”
