To further the AV industry’s knowledge about installation and equip installers with necessary skills, Premier Mounts offers two-day installation training courses at their headquarters in Corona, California that educates integrators and installers about the framework of video wall construction. Education is a key component of advancements, and this bi-weekly training course allows further advancements for installation partners through in-depth training and insightful tools when working on high-scale AV jobs. Individuals have the opportunity to become a certified Premier Mounts installer. As a certified installer, teams can gain valuable product knowledge along with an opportunity to receive 8 RU credits that can be used for AVIXA’s Certified Technology Specialist (CTS) certification.
