FAIRFIELD, N.J. — Oct. 3, 2016 — As part of its ongoing commitment to deliver the products and services and fully support integrators as technology continues to advance and evolve, Middle Atlantic Products has announced a full month of online training opportunities in celebration of AV Month 2016. As the AV community unites to celebrate, promote, and share the industry with the world, this is a great opportunity for integrators to deepen their expertise and knowledge to better meet the needs of installations today and in the future.

Covering some of the latest trends, challenges, and standards arising in the industry, each training session will equip attendees with techniques that can be directly applied in the field. Sessions will be offered online, allowing industry professionals everywhere easy access to the courses. All courses are InfoComm-CTS, BICSI, and AIA certified. Attendees who successfully complete all four courses can earn four CTS, BICSI, and/or AIA credits.
