York Telecom Achieves AV Industry Certification

Certified AudioVisual Solutions Provider Program Signifies Company Commitment to Education and Training

EATONTOWN, NJ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 18, 2005 -- York Telecom, a recognized expert in complex visual communication solutions and services, today announced its further participation in the audiovisual industry's highly regarded certification program, marking its commitment to education and training for all employees.

The Certified AudioVisual Solutions Provider (CAVSP) Program is the industry standard certification program for companies in the professional audiovisual industry. It is administered by The International Communications Industries Association, Inc.® (ICIA®) and the International Communications Industries Foundation (ICIF).

"A CAVSP designation gives AV companies a competitive advantage in the marketplace," said Randal A. Lemke, Ph.D., ICIA's executive director. "Customers of audiovisual communications and presentation systems can be confident of professionalism and an aspiration to excellence when working with these companies that have invested in education and training to stay current on the latest AV technologies and techniques."

The CAVSP Program includes three levels -- basic, silver and gold certified members -- depending on the percentage of staff within an organization who have received individual certification. Individual certification is known as the Certified Technology Specialist (CTS) program, and consists of general certification as well as specialized certification in design, installation, rentals or sales.

"York Telecom has a twenty-year history of engineering excellence and professionalism obtained through training and hands-on experience. We are dedicated to continuing this tradition. This certification reflects that commitment to both our employees and our customers," said Ken Scaturro, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for York Telecom. "This is another step in the process for us. We will continue to offer the appropriate training for our staff and encourage additional personnel to achieve personal certification, which will in turn equate to higher corporate certification levels."

Companies eligible for CAVSP status include businesses that manufacture, sell, integrate, design, provide consultation on or rent AV equipment, systems and services. The CAVSP program (formerly ICIA's Certified Member Program) ties in with the AVolution Industry Awareness Campaign that promotes the skills and talents of professional AV solutions providers (AVSPs). More information on ICIA's certification program and educational courses is available at www.infocomm.org.
