AVSP Recognition

For more than 30 years, InfoComm has offered its certification programs to establish and maintain widespread credibility for the AV industry and AV professionals. AVC has obtained an organizational-level recognition, known as the AudioVisual Solutions Provider (AVSP) — a recognition of professionalism and expertise achieved through professional development, training and continuously updated certification for employees.

The AVSP program, formerly known as the CAVSP Program, is the only organizational-level recognition program of its kind.

The AVSP is based on the percentage of personnel (technical, sales or customer service) who have completed certain InfoComm Academy courses, achieved either the General CTS or the specialized CTS in Design or Installation. AVC is a Diamond Level Solutions Provider.

Hallmarks of a true certification program:

  • Assesses individuals against peer-developed standards of competencies
  • Provides an assessment (exam) that is independent of any specific course or curriculum 
  • Provides a credential that is time limited 
  • Enhances continued competency through ongoing renewal requirements 
  • Requires adherence to a code of ethics

InfoComm's certifications are the only AV credentials to achieve accreditation through the International Organization of Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) ISO/IEC 17024 certification of personnel as administered in the United States by ANSI. 

There are Three Levels of AVSP:
