Kramer Electronics U.S. has once again entered into an agreement with InfoComm International® to offer InfoComm-licensed courses, and broaden their current offering of education and training nationwide.
Kramer will offer both CTS® Prep and CTS-D Prep classes across the United States. Under the umbrella of the Kramer Academy™, Kramer will leverage their past experience of having taught the CTS Prep class to approximately 1,400 students between 2009 and 2012.
"Kramer Electronics is dedicated to providing education and training on key industry concepts and technologies that provide students with the comprehensive knowledge necessary to succeed in the AV marketplace," stated Dave Bright, President of Kramer Electronics US. “CTS certifications prepare people in our industry to do the job of selling and designing Pro AV equipment properly, and as such these certifications are invaluable to the entire industry.”
“InfoComm is thrilled to be working again with Kramer Electronics to bring this important training to the industry,” said David Labuskes, CTS, RCDD, Executive Director and CEO of InfoComm International. “The more professionals who take CTS and CTS-D Prep classes, the stronger the AV industry becomes, and based on Kramer’s extensive training network, we are excited for the future. Thanks to Dave Bright and everyone at Kramer for embracing CTS and CTS-D Prep and their commitment to AV excellence.”
Recently, Kramer has realized the need to emphasize the issue of quality in the industry. The switch from installations based on analog signals to systems based on digital signals has led to a whole new body of knowledge necessary. As such, Kramer spent the past couple of years focusing their educational offerings on quality processes in AV system design and installation, by sponsoring and teaching with AQAV (Association for Quality in AV Technology).
As a result of a great deal of direct feedback from the market, Kramer is pleased to be able to bring back by popular demand a renewed focus on CTS certification prep classes, this time adding the CTS-D Prep class to our offering, along with the general CTS Prep class.
Industry customers and channel partners have been pressing Kramer to get back to teaching InfoComm-licensed material, and now we have. In addition, we continue to offer AQAV training, creating a balanced offering that emphasizes industry quality.
Through years of experience, Kramer developed a niche by successfully offering the CTS Prep class from InfoComm regionally in the United States. Students who have attended the Kramer-led CTS Prep class have a very high pass rate on the exam itself. Kramer is looking forward to getting back to delivering that same high quality of education leading to CTS certification through the efforts of past InfoComm Educator of the Year, Malissa Dillman, CTS-D, CTS-I.
“We are committed to the InfoComm curriculum and to offering our own educational courses that support CTS renewal and quality programs,” states Clint Hoffman, Vice President of Marketing for Kramer Electronics U.S. “We are also committed to making the educational experience as accessible as possible anywhere we can. We often bring our educational offerings directly to our customer’s location or to an area nearby that is an easy commute for the students.”
