Adrienne Knick, Senior Director of Certification at AVIXA says: “The CTS program has been the leading competence benchmark for audiovisual professionals for over 30 years. Today, more than 13,000 specialists worldwide are CTS certified. We welcome the initiatives of education providers such as Samsung who are committed to providing educational resources so that AV professionals can deepen their expertise. †

Evert van Camp, Display Director at Samsung Benelux, explains: “We are very proud to be a supplier of CTS renewal units. We want to support the AV industry with quality products and services and a commitment to upskilling those on the front lines of AV installation.”

There are three CTS certifications: General (CTS), Design (CTS-D), and Installation (CTS-I). To be approved, Renewal Unit programs must be taught by experienced instructors whose qualifications in the relevant field are clearly demonstrated. The course must contain at least one relevant learning objective or industry-related objective, address a specific exam area and exam level, and end with an assessment tool to demonstrate that participants have actually understood the objectives. These criteria are rigorously reviewed by AVIXA’s Unit Recertification Committee.
