About Chris Lavelle

Senior Director of Development for AVIXA in EMEA with over 20 years experience in AV and IT industries.
Started off in sound engineering in the late 90s then pursued a career in IT. After working in web development I returned to AV and have not looked back! I do at times pine to work more directly with the amazing technology available today to help create great AV experiences but I do get to see them being shared and celebrated! I look forward to seeing many of those examples on the Xchange!

Replying to ERAY ALTINEL

I m ready to get the course for me too but need a time for need basics all my course and now eventhough I m freelancer working to all workplace I wish I could be in a company that I wanna be having course need for me.therefore need a help for me all course  about the CTS.

Hi Eray,

The best way to get access to the online training courses in preparation for the CTS exam as a freelancer would be to sign up for Premium individual membership which is 100 Euros but as you are based in Turkey the membership and CTS exam fee falls under the developing economy country list so the membership fee is 50 Euros. You will then also qualify for membership pricing for the CTS exam.

As a reminder, the exam can be taken remotely if you have a private space and webcam/microphone.

Let us know if you need any more information on membership or certification and my colleague @Megan Petrovich (She/Her) can help.

Very interesting when we use the wider space for effect, great to see installations are making use of the whole environment, a much bigger canvas for effect!
