Certified Audiovisual Solutions Provider program signifies company commitment to education and training with an IT approach to AV
NIANTIC, CT, June 27, 2005 - Telaid announced its participation in the audiovisual industry's highly regarded certification program, marking its commitment to education and training for all employees and its continued focus on approaching AV within an IT point of view.
The Certified AudioVisual Solutions Provider (CAVSP) Program is the industry-standard certification program for companies in the professional audiovisual industry. It is administered by The International Communications Industries Association, Inc.® (ICIA®) and the International Communications Industries Foundation (ICIF).
"A CAVSP designation really sets apart the top performing AV companies from the rest in the marketplace," said Randal A. Lemke, Ph.D., ICIA's executive director. "Customers of audiovisual communications and presentation systems can be confident of professionalism and an aspiration to excellence when working with these companies that have invested in education and training to stay current on the latest AV technologies and techniques."
The CAVSP Program includes three levels -- basic, silver and gold certified members -- depending on the percentage of staff within an organization who have received individual certification. Individual certification is known as the Certified Technology Specialist (CTS) program and consists of general certification as well as specialized certification in design, installation, rentals or sales.
"Telaid has focused on obtaining Silver Certification with an overall commitment to educating our team of employees and cultivating a way of delivering AV solutions with an IT focus," said George Meglio, Vice President of AV Communications. "All of our employees have made an effort to achieve CTS and we will be an AVolution Gold Member in a short period of time." George went on to say that "an educated AV team with IT training brings tremendous value to Telaid's customer base. Telaid delivers more projects on time and on budget than ever before. ICIA educational programs play a major role in our success. I am proud of the commitment that the Telaid Team has made to reaching our goals."
Companies eligible for CAVSP status include businesses that manufacture, sell, integrate, design, provide consultation on or rent AV equipment, systems and services. The CAVSP program (formerly ICIA's Certified Member Program) ties in with the AVolution Industry Awareness Campaign that promotes the skills and talents of professional AV solutions providers (AVSPs). To achieve CAVSP status, the company must participate in AVolution by agreeing to 10 Standards of Excellence.
