“Saving the AV Industry ...

one system at a time”

Engineered audio visual systems continue to become more complex and difficult to integrate. By focusing on the quality management of these systems, and of those who design and install them, we can benefit the AV industry and all its stakeholders: including clients and users of AV technology, AV designers and installers, equipment manufacturers, related construction and architectural firms, and the environment. 

What is AV9000?

The AV9000 Standard includes a battery of tests to be applied at each major milestone in the development of an AV project to assure that the system is being designed and implemented in accordance with what the customer ordered, that it will perform as intended and that it adheres to the best industry practices so that it can be serviced and maintained well after it is installed. 
AV9000 Compliance is rapidly becoming a requirement for more and more buyers of AV Technology. AV9000 Compliance provides the first level of evidence to a buyer that the AV Company is applying Quality Management in the services it provides and is meant to be a stepping stone to AV9000 Certification.

AQAV courses differ from other industry training, focusing on critically needed skills not being addressed elsewhere. This principle difference is most evident in AQAV’s concentration on group activity and interdependency.

CQT training is best suited for tech managers, Project Managers, and anyone involved in installing AV systems.
