Audio Visual (AV) Technology

Program Description

The Audiovisual Technician Program will prepare students for the Certified Technology Specialist (CTS) certification exam administered by AVIXA and entry-level jobs in the audiovisual industry. Audiovisual technicians set up and operate audio and video equipment including microphones, sound speakers, video screens, projectors, video monitors, recording equipment, connecting wires and cables, sound and mixing boards, and related electronic equipment for concerts, sports events, meetings and conventions, presentations, and news conferences. AV systems facilitate essential communications and often require connectivity with various types of networks, requiring AV technicians to work with IT teams to set up and maintain that connectivity. This aspect of audiovisual technology is evolving, influencing industry demand.
