Mike White, president/CEO of Multi-Media Solutions, a nationally recognized audio-visual systems integrator based in East Tennessee, was honored this month as one of InfoComm International’s featured educators. InfoComm is the leading non-profit association serving the audiovisual industry worldwide with more than 4,500 members.
The Faculty Program, where White serves an Adjunct Faculty, was created to recognize the contributions of its corps of dedicated instructors and to contribute to their professional development. In doing so, InfoComm provides students with the highest quality training from the industry’s technical experts. Worldwide, InfoComm has approximately 200 volunteer educators like White, and only a select few are chosen to teach courses in the AV industry, helping attendees earn professional certifications. White’s ratings as an instructor from his students earned him the recognition as an educator this month. He will be honored for this achievement at the InfoComm International trade show in Orlando.
“It helps everyone when a project is done well. It hurts everyone when a project is done poorly. I believe that each of us can play a valuable role in our industry and the success of the InfoComm community by lending our expertise and wisdom to those just starting the journey. That is why I teach,” said White. “It is truly an honor to be recognized by InfoComm International, and I passionately believe that the best way I can help our industry, and ultimately my business, is to invest in the professional development of my peers through education and sharing with others what I have learned in the last 20 years as I invested in this industry.”
With more than 50,000 enrollments since 1997, InfoComm’s audiovisual education and certification programs are the AV industry’s leading professional development resource. InfoComm Academy offers an extensive range of AV courses designed and taught by InfoComm’s expert faculty members representing the entire spectrum of technical, sales, management and professional disciplines.
Courses are taken online, at the Fairfax, Virginia, headquarters, around the world, and at the InfoComm trade show, June 17-19, where more than 30,000 professionals from 80-plus countries are expected to attend. On any given day there are over 3,000 students enrolled in InfoComm training and certification. InfoComm also licenses certain curricula to companies and organizations and provides contract training on location by request.
White, an audiovisual system designer and public speaker, is also one of 12 elected InfoComm board members worldwide. This is White’s third term with InfoComm, and he will serve a one year term on the board. In previous terms, White served as one of five governors-at-large who assisted in developing planning, finance, member relations and organizational operations.
