AV@SEA –4-day Course- Yacht Audio-Visual & Control Systems Training

23 March 2020
Fort Lauderdale
4 days

*Now also exclusively includes the new Crestron Superyacht Systems Technician certification!*

This popular 4-day course teaches crew to better support the most common yacht audio-visual (AV) and control systems. The focus is familiarizing students with the essential theory and tasks required to proficiently manage the classroom’s own superyacht AV system.

Due to the interactive and hands-on approach, class numbers are kept deliberately small, never exceeding 8 students.

This course is ideal for engineering crew, or any other crew responsible for onboard audio-visual systems.
