“Today’s educational institutions frequently handle their own AV planning, design, and deployment, and require training resources that align with their distinct needs,” said Roger Takacs, Strategic Account Manager at Atlona, who is spearheading the company’s initiatives in the education vertical market. “Our new training certifications for educational technologists and designers combine the relevant core components of our existing, proven courseware with new content specifically developed around the needs of universities, colleges, and K-12 schools.”
