Almo Professional A/V and InfoComm International announced all of its courses on Almo’s 2013 E4 AV training and networking tour are now worth InfoComm CTS Renewal Units.
February 20, 2013 By D. Craig MacCormack

The debate over the value of certification has been going strong recently, but there’s no debating the enticement of getting something free. And, in a world where time is of the essence, being able to get some free knowledge and renewal education credits at the same time has to be appealing.

To that end, Almo Professional A/V and InfoComm International announced this week all 12 of its courses on Almo’s 2013 E4 AV training and networking tour are now worth InfoComm CTS Renewal Units.

“As we enter our fourth year of traveling around the country for the E4 AV tour, our mission remains the same: to offer our partner community local access to free educational training so they may get the business, technical and practical knowledge they need to lead their companies in the right direction,” says Melody Craigmyle, vice president of marketing for Almo Professional A/V, in a press releasing announcing the partnership with InfoComm.

“We are reaffirming this mission and taking it a step further by making every one of our courses worth CTS renewal units. With a keynote and classes running on three different tracks throughout the day, attendees will walk away from any session at this influential event with new information as well as professional A/V credit,” she says.

Each stop on the E4 AV tour will feature hundreds of products from more than 30 manufacturers, including AMX, Canon, Chief, Hitachi, Mitsubishi, NEC, LG, Panasonic, Planar, Premier Mounts, Samsung, ZeeVee and more. The spring E4 tour will provide an opportunity for attendees to have a sneak peek at new products that will be officially unveiled at InfoComm 2013 in Orlando in June.

Registration is open for the first two E4 events of the year, at Oakbrook Drury Lane Conference Center in Chicago on March 28 and at the South San Francisco Conference Center on April 25. The E4 AV program can be accessed on demand during and after each event for instructor videos, copies of the course presentations and live Twitter updates.

E4 Chicago will include hourly 30-minute demos of the new Samsung Smart School Solution, a fully integrated, interactive learning platform that empowers educators and helps re-engage K-12 students with Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1 tablets and interactive whiteboard displays. The full Chicago E4 educational schedule will be broken down into several tracks: Emerging Technology, Technical Knowledge and Business Savvy.
