Start A Career In AV Integration

In May 2013 I received a YouTube message from someone named Chris in regard to a video I had published titled The AV Integration Industry.  Chris explained that he was able to line up a job interview at an AV company, however he didn't actually have any experience as an AV Installer.  Uh Oh!  I'm not sure if this video response will reach Chris in time, or if the information will have enough time to sink in.  If you're new to AV Integration or you are thinking about starting a career in a growing industry, I have put together a few links to get you headed in the right direction.

My goal is to help people.  That is my purpose for creating YouTube videos and blogging.  So if you have any question, that's what I'm here for.  I have been in the AV Integration industry since 2007.  I have worked as an Installation Tech, Drafting Tech, CAD Engineer and AV Designer.  I'm happy to share what I have learned along the way with anyone who would like to know more.  Hope you find this information useful.

AV Integration Links:


  1. Nice video. When I started a year ago, I found all of these places hugely helpful myself and continue to do so.

    1. Glad to hear it Joel. There's always some sort of new technology to keep your eye on. The resources in this video are a great way to keep up. Send me a message sometime, I'd be interested to hear more about what you do and where you got started.

    2. The pic throws it off since I use my personal email for blogger, but this is Joel Hagen at Chief. @chief_JoelH or

    3. Of course! Joel from Chief! Now I remember corresponding with you last year. You started out in journalism and now your doing content management for Chief. How are you liking it?
