Jun 26, 2012 3:05 PM
InfoComm International and the United Veterans Learning Centers (UVLC) have launched a new education program focused on training veterans for jobs in the AV industry. In a thorough six-week program designed to enhance the capabilities possessed by many veterans, the trainees will be exposed to the employment possibilities of the AV industry, and will receive preparation for the CTS certification exam.
UVLC focuses on providing tangible opportunities for veteran employment within some of the nation’s fastest growing and in-demand markets today through education and certification. Recently UVLC has been focused on identifying markets and developing training solutions to give veterans the credentials they need to be successful in the professional world, both government and private sector.
“Our program is addressing and advancing national missions for employment and economic stability,” says Leonie Marie, Program Manager for UVLC. “Not only are we answering the call to provide opportunities for veterans in high-demand, fast-growing and sustainable career fields, we are also advancing federal and local missions to improve America’s infrastructure, energy and technology industries. This initiative is aimed at creating an audiovisual army just waiting to be mobilized, propelling this industry to the next level.”
This initiative showcases InfoComm International’s dedication to training veterans for a career in the audiovisual industry. Earlier this week, InfoComm was one of a handful of groups identified by the American Legion, ANSI, and SOLID to provide certification and employment opportunities to veterans.
“The audiovisual industry needs more qualified personnel, and most veterans have received unsurpassed technical training,” said Randal A. Lemke, Ph.D., Executive Director and CEO, InfoComm International. “By teaming with the United Veterans Learning Centers, InfoComm is taking steps to address the tragic 13.3 percent unemployment rate amongst post 9/11 veterans, while securing valuable human resources for the audiovisual industry.”
