Harman Professional Learning Sessions Series Attracts 20,000 Live Attendees and Achieves AVIXA Certification

Harman Professional Solutions announces the Harman Learning Sessions has grown to have more than 20,000 attendees for its live webinar workshops -- the majority of which are now certified by the Audiovisual and Integrated Experience Association (AVIXA). In April 2020, Harman Learning Sessions was created to financially help under-employed AVL industry experts during the pandemic.

In ten months, Harman Professional has held more than 150 live workshop webinars hosted by 102 external presenters in addition to Harman staff experts. Covering topics ranging from live sound and lighting design to networked AV and IoT infrastructure, the workshops have proved to be an invaluable resource for industry professionals of all experience levels. All past sessions are archived and available to watch for free at pro.harman.com/lp/learning-sessions-playlists.

Recently, 129 Learning Sessions have been certified by AVIXA, an international organization of over 11,000 AV professionals that provides training and certification courses, conducts market research, and publishes technical standards.

"We're thrilled at the reception our AVIXA-certified Learning Sessions have gotten," said Laura Lawrence, senior director of global marketing, Harman Professional Solutions. "We started this initiative early last year to provide educational resources and opportunities for AV and lighting professionals affected by COVID-19's impact on our industry. Since then, the series has been a huge success, with over 150 webinars presented on a wide variety of topics. Receiving AVIXA certification is a major win for our Learning Sessions program, and we're excited to expand our offerings with even more workshops in 2021 and beyond."

Harman Professional is actively seeking lighting designers, audio engineers, AV professionals, performing artists and content creators to conduct future Learning Sessions. This opportunity is paid and will not require travel.

"The combined expertise from our industry experts is vast, and they are passionate about sharing what they've learned over the years," said Lawrence. "Likewise, their peers are using the Learning Sessions to keep their skills sharp, especially as the AVL industry looks to rebound in the coming months. I encourage experts to propose a session that could inspire others."
