Professional certifications are a way to differentiate yourself as an industry professional. They also give customers the assurance that you are an expert and can be trusted with their project.

In the AV industry, that means earning a CTS certification from AVIXA. And if you’re particularly interested in the digital signage part of AV, it means Digital Signage Certified Expert (DSCE) and Digital Content and Media Expert (DCME) certifications. They were developed by Digital Signage Experts Group (DSEG) in partnership with the Digital Signage Federation (DSF), the Digital Signage Expo (DSE), and numerous manufacturers, distributors, resellers, and end users.

These two certifications will be the featured offerings in the first-ever DSF-DSEG Digital Signage Certification Week, June 22-24.

“DSEG and CTS work hand in hand as digital signage expands its purview as a mainstream communication medium beyond its origins in retail,” said DSEG director Alan Brawn. “As AV and IT have converged, so it is with AV and digital signage. Recognizing this the DSF and AVIXA are dedicated to meeting the needs of this combined community.”

The two DSEG certification courses are typically eight hours in length, but during this online event will be delivered over three days in 3-hour segments, making it available to more AV professionals.

The courses will feature subject matter experts from the DSF and DSEG and will require participants to pass an online assessment for certification following the live sessions.

“There are several benefits to this live online event,” said Brawn. “First, with live course interactions, questions can allow for a deeper examination and understanding of a topic. There will also be networking events at the end of each day, and those who paid to attend our certification courses during the cancelled 2020 Digital Signage Expo will be able to attend the live webinars, or we will provide a link to the online certifications on the new DSEG website at no charge.”

In addition to the DSCE and DCME certifications, each course is good for 8 CTS Renewal Units.
