“Quality means doing it right when no one is looking.” - Henry Ford


What people are saying ...

AQAV's approach to bringing quality management into the industry has its parallels in other industries. Note that the organizations that create and maintain the quality standards are separate from the industry association:

NSCA Support Statement for AQAV Much like NSCA, AQAV is dedicated to helping integrators improve their businesses and provide better services and solutions to their customers. We support AQAV’s focus on quality AV installation – which is becoming more difficult to achieve given increasingly complex and ever-changing technology, and convergence of AV and IT. “To help integrators contain and control costs, and keep up with today’s AV technology, NSCA shares in AQAV’s mission to encourage strong processes, standards, audits, and training. NSCA is proud to support this organization and its Music is Life fundraiser to raise awareness about the benefits of joining AQAV – and to establish much-needed industry scholarships,” says Chuck Wilson, NSCA executive director. “We place high value in quality, and the commissioning guidelines are a very good tool for our members.”

I give this course an A+. Attention to detail is imperative to delivering a system with no defects and has very long longevity in the field. The technologies will change before the system no longer operates.

"At UGS, it has no longer a recommendation, it is a REQUIREMENT to be CQT certified in order to hold a Field Engineer position. Even PM's will begin attending the course to have a clearer understanding of systems deployment and client turnover. The more educated we are, the better quality product we can provide to our customers."

Take the jump from thinking it's right to KNOWING its right! Make no mistake-AV is never going away....as long as there are eyes, ears, and mouths in the room - Quality Audio Visual will be required!​

"Just wanted to let you know that the AQAV training has paid off.  Since beginning to use the checklist system we've seen far fewer installation errors this past year than any I have records for."

Though it is not likely that I will be doing any of the actual commissioning taught in this class, I will be able to pass on my knowledge to those that will be. Also, it is great that I now have a knowledgeable understanding of the tests and what the results mean. I will also be recommending that others be required to do this process and get the certification. I will be reviewing our current commissioning procedures and see what processes can be improved on.

"Being able to audit a system is the only way to make sure it is working up to its potential. It is also absolutely key to having assured quality.”

"Not only did the CQD meet my expectations, it exceeded any I had!"
