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.

-- L.P., JPMorgan

“We’ve built AV9000 into our campus facility standards and follow it on all our installations.  It has everyone working from the same page and explains the ‘why’ as well as the ‘how’.  It’s turned into a friendly competition between the installation team and the commissioning team.”

-- D.D., University of Illinois

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"In the ever-increasing complexity of today’s market a Quality Management System is not optional.  It’s a true imperative for success.  AV9000 has taken years of real-world experiences—the successes and the failures—and set the authoritative, de-facto standards of quality.  This is the most excited I’ve been about a new initiative in our business in thirty years!  The bar has been raised high, but the training to get over it is superb.”

-- B.L., AVI Systems
