As an APEx Company Total Video Products is proud to stand behind AVIXA standards for the audiovisual industry.

These standards, for system design and coordination, and system verification, show that our company can facilitate communication on all levels of a project, and most importantly, deliver a verified system that meets the client needs.

Established more than 30 years ago, AVIXA’s Certified Technology Specialist™ (CTS®) certification at all levels demonstrates audiovisual knowledge and skills. Certified individuals adhere to the CTS Code of Ethics and Conduct and maintain their status through continued education.

Companies such as Total Video Products that have achieved APEx status have demonstrated a commitment to professional excellence by supporting employees who achieve and maintain individual AVIXA certification credentials. The CTS for general expertise in AV, the CTS®-D for specialization in AV design and the CTS®-I for specialization in AV installation, set the standard for AV professional credentials.

The CTS, CTS-D and CTS-I credentials are accredited (#0770) by the International Organization for Standardization’s (ISO) United States representative, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). ISO/IEC 17024:2012 establishes a global benchmark for the certification of personnel.

The APEx program also requires proven customer satisfaction from our previous clients. Many of our clients have been in contact with AVIXA’s third party survey provider and have completed highly rated customer satisfaction surveys.

Total Video Products is proud to be among an elite group of professional companies. We stand behind our company’s services, quality solutions, and customer orientation, and have pledged through AVIXA’s Core Values Agreement to uphold a strict code of ethics and workmanship practices that we integrate into our daily routine.
