Course Purpose
To provide an introduction to the fundamentals of the technology used on a daily basis in the audiovisual industry. If you know how things work, you will be able to apply these fundamentals to new technologies and applications as they develop.  When you know how things work, it helps you solve problems and meet your client's needs (or your own).

Audiovisual technicians, managers and support staff in their first six months to a year of hire, who understand the context of their job and how the industry works but need depth on the technical side.

None. If you are brand-new to the industry, InfoComm Academy's Quick Start to the Audiovisual Industry provides a more thorough introduction to roles in the audiovisual industry and the most basic introduction to technology concepts.
