InfoComm adds UK members with higher education deal

InfoComm International has extended membership and free and discounted training to the UK's Standing Conference for Heads of Media Services (SCHOMS).

SCHOMS brings together individuals responsible for media services and technolgy in higher education establishments. These institutions will become members of InfoComm International and will receive select free online training, including CTS Prep, along with access to discounted advanced training.

David Labuskes, executive director and CEO of InfoComm International, said: “We have worked together over the years to advance the AV profession at universities and provide networking for senior managers at higher education institutions throughout the U.K., and hope this effort will lead to more joint initiatives in the future.”

Simon Birkett, SCHOMS Chair, added: “With technology rapidly changing the way that learning, teaching and assessment practice is created and delivered, all members of SCHOMS are increasingly being expected to meet the challenges of innovating with and supporting a range of AV and learning technologies.

“The agreement with InfoComm delivers a consistent and recognised approach to developing and professionalising our staff to meet the needs of our learners and exceed their growing expectations”, said Simon Birkett, SCHOMS Chair.

The groups estimate that InfoComm International will gain 75 new members as this relationship gets underway.
