AV University, the new home for Chief, Da-Lite and Vaddio training courses, will launch in November on the Milestone.com site. The one-stop-shop for online learning about Chief, Da-Lite and Vaddio applications and installations will provide AV professionals free AVIXA CTS credits.
A major benefit of AV University is the self-directed pace. Students take courses on their own schedule. Classes are listed with an estimated time of completion and number of CTS RUs to help users estimate their availability and interest. Another benefit is the exposure to product lines from different brands.
"We want this to be a major destination for those who want to learn about our products and earn CTS Renewal Units at the same time," said Jerilyn Veldof, Learning Experience Designer. "Down the road, we'll be expanding course offerings beyond our product base. It's about broadening our offerings and investing in online training."
AV University opens with ten available courses and 5.5 CTS RUs. These courses are comprised of instructional videos and quizzes. Veldof said future courses will include webinars and other components to broaden the ways visitors can learn. Managers will be able to direct their installers to the correct courses for quick training on particular products.
The new, robust AV University platform will replace the current Chief Certification Program. Vaddio product certification will still be available at AV University.
Look for AV University to launch November 15.
