China-based LED display manufacturer Absen, which has its U.S. headquarters in Orlando, Florida, recently hosted the 100th training session of its globally recognized ACE training program. The session took place at its North American headquarters in mid-December.
The Absen Certified Engineer (ACE) program is a dedicated training course for partners and customers involved in the installation, configuration and maintenance of Absen LED products, ensuring end users get the most from their LED deployments by having access to what the company says is the largest pool of professionally trained LED engineers in the world.
Since its 2014 inception, more than 1,500 professionals have been certified worldwide, making it the industry’s first and most widespread LED training program, the company says. In 2019 alone, 518 new Absen engineers were certified in 36 ACE training sessions across 22 locations on six continents.
“The goal of an ACE training program is to teach participants how to set up a complete LED video wall from scratch,” says Kenny Jin, who heads up the program. “Through the training program, participants are able to master new technologies and develop their skills in this increasingly competitive marketplace. Moreover, it allows our partners to strengthen their customer service abilities and reduce costs by bringing the skills in-house”.
Split across two to three days—and free of charge—the ACE program course allows engineers, technicians and freelancers to get a first-hand look at Absen’s LED products from the inside out, with instruction focusing on LED set-up, troubleshooting and LED control. At the end of the training course, participants must pass both a written and hands-on practical test, after which they are awarded the status of ‘Absen Certified Engineer’ in an official graduation ceremony.
Anyone interested in taking part in the ACE training program is asked to contact their local Absen representative.
