(PRESS RELEASE) With a commitment to support the expanding AV workforce with accessible resources, AVIXA (Audiovisual Integrated Experience Association) announces that the Certified Technology Specialist (CTS) exam is now available to take through online proctoring.

“AVIXA is dedicated to helping AV professionals around the world on their pathways to certification. Online-proctored CTS testing eliminates barriers like long distances to test centers and closures of test centers due to the pandemic,” said Adrienne Knick, Senior Director of Certification, AVIXA. “The CTS program represents more than 13,500 AV professionals in more than 100 countries – a community of experts that will grow as the opportunities to sit for exams now reaches even more people.”

The AVIXA CTS online-proctored exam is available in English, German, and Spanish, and exam appointments are now open 24 hours a day through Pearson VUE. Candidates can take the exam simply with a computer, webcam, and stable internet connection. Online proctoring is only available for the CTS exam at this time. CTS-D and CTS-I exams are delivered in person at Pearson VUE test centers. Candidates can also choose to take the CTS exam in person.

AVIXA’s Certified Technology Specialist program is the only professional audiovisual certification program accredited by the International Organization for Standardization’s (ISO) United States representative, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).

“Given the challenges associated with delivering certification examinations on account of the ongoing global health crisis, the ANSI National Accreditation Board commends AVIXA for earning approval as part of the pilot program to offer accredited programs through remote proctoring in accordance with the requirements of ISO/IEC 17024,” said Vijay Krishna, MBA, ED.D., Vice President, Credentialing, ANSI National Accreditation Board.
