ICIA has released the newly revised online course, "Essentials of the AV Industry," which provides students with A/V fundamentals that are used daily by industry professionals, including instruction on how audiovisual equipment works and how it's applied.

"'Essentials' has become the foundation of training for the whoe A/V communications industry," said Randal A. Lemke, Ph.D., the executive director of ICIA. "Over 6,000 have been enrolled in it since it debuted in 1997 and we have over 1,000 current enrollments. This new version has the updated content needed in a fast-changing industry and it has a new user interface that will make it even easier and more efficient to use."

The course content has been significantly restructured and consists of 260 lessons divided into three sections: audio (dynamics of sound, audio signals, sound processing, audio system setup and digital audio), visual (vision and light; display technologies; display equipment; video signals; sources; processing and output; and video signal production, recording and output) and audiovisual systems (lighting, conferencing applications, electrical, signal management, control systems, computer systems and networking). The enhanced courses feature a search engine by topic, an updated glossary, focused learning objectives for each lesson, new graphics and photos, and a streamlined writing style.

Registration for this Web-based course is currently available. The current version of the course will be maintained to allow students already registered in Version 1 to complete their course. After September 15, 2003, Version 1 will no longer be available. Due to fundamental differences between the courses, students currently enrolled in V. 1 cannot be transferred to V. 2.
