Datapath, world-leading engineers of visual solutions, is pleased to announce that the company has been named an official AVIXA CTS® Renewal Unit (RU) Provider. This will allow professionals holding AVIXA’s Certified Technology Specialist credential to earn renewal units towards their certification by completing certain Datapath education programs. Currently, there are more than 12,000 CTS-certified professionals worldwide.
To obtain approval, RU programs must feature experienced instructors with clear evidence of qualifications in the session topic. Each class must contain at least one relevant learning objective or industry-related purpose; relate to a specific exam topic area and exam level and conclude with an assessment tool to demonstrate participants have grasped the objectives. These criteria are vigorously reviewed by AVIXA’s Certification Renewal Committee.
Datapath meets these credentials and is expanding its best-in-class education and training offerings with the announcement of a new course, “How to Set Up and Troubleshoot a Datapath VSN Controller.”
Following accreditation from AVIXA’s CTS renewal committee, course attendees will earn 2.25 Renewal Units (RU) towards CTS and 2.25 RU points towards CTS-I certification. The Datapath VSN controllers are capable of integrating any type of video and data sources, including video over IP, on any display configuration.
“We’re thrilled that Datapath has developed this course to support the CTS program,” said David Labuskes CTS, CAE, RCDD, Chief Executive Officer of AVIXA. “The more companies invest in providing education resources, the more the AV industry can elevate itself to higher standards.”
Attendees at New York’s Digital Signage Week (NYDSW) can register, by invitation, for the two-day course, “How to Set Up and Troubleshoot a Datapath VSN Controller,” to earn 2.5 RU credits. Datapath is running the same session twice at the New Yorker Hotel on Tuesday and Wednesday, October 30th and 31st, and again on Thursday and Friday , November 1st and 2nd.
