None. Essentials of the AV Industry online course is recommended.


  • Installers new to the industry
  • Managers of installation departments or process
  • Systems designers and engineers
  • System service professionals
  • System sales professionals

Course Purpose

  • To provide the professionals involved with the installation of AV systems with an effective training tool. Developed by industry professionals with years of experience in the AV installation industry, the program was designed to be easy and cost effective to implement.
  • Address advanced science and technology concepts specifically as they relate to installation
  • Outline installation procedures in preparation for hands-on practice at InfoComm Academy's two OnSite courses, Installation School Level 1: Installation Technician and Installation School Level 2: Lead Installation Technician

Benefits to the employer

  • Takes the knowledge of experienced and expert installation technicians and industry experts and captures it in one online program, including highlighted "best practices"
  • Lets the employer take advantage of this content without pulling one of his/her own employees from a job to provide it
  • Contains over 40 downloadable PDFs of step-by-step instructions, often with photos, that can be used as on-the-job reference tools. Topics include soldering procedures (so many photos "you can almost smell the fumes") to setting up microphones
  • Provides instruction developed by an award-winning team of instructional designers
  • Dovetails with the hands-on component of InfoComm Academy's two OnSite courses
  • Provides consistent training, available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
  • Provides section tests that can be sent to the supervisor to keep up with student's progress


  • "Best practices" highlighted in each section as a way to reinforce the professionalism expected of an installer. While all organizations may not subscribe to the practices highlighted, the point is to consider new ways to be efficient, creative, and professional.
  • A troubleshooting section for audio, video, RF, data display and control
  • References to equipment and media not widely available at the time of the original offering, e.g.; widescreen formats and using applicable test patterns; plasmas; electronic projector adjustments like keystone correcting; clock and phase
  • More comprehensive content on power and grounding
  • Real drawings from real projects
  • Insights into the business surrounding installation technicians to help them focus on "the big picture."

InfoComm offers two levels of
certification: a general Certified Technology Specialist (CTS) designation, achieved by passing a 100-question test online, and a CTS-I, a specialized designation for Installation. You need more than the ICIA courses to pass the CTS-I - you need a general CTS and proficiency and experience from at least 2 years of doing the work. ICIA courses will, however, help you focus and refine your skill and knowledge so you can demonstrate your expertise in an industry-recognized way.
