“Each time we hold an ACE program, the training applications flood in from countries across the region. The technicians who are familiar with Absen and the great products that we have deployed across the continent show great interest in attending. Full consideration is always taken before embarking on a new round of ACE training because we all we need to make sure that high-quality training is given and the attendees can really learn what they need for daily work,” says Jessica Xiao. Ted Peng, Absen sales manager for East Africa adds: “We’re so impressed and inspired by the enthusiasm that the engineers have shown during this 3-day training. They listened carefully in the class and an  actively took part in the hands-on operation of the technology.”

Eric Van Daele, an experienced engineer from Rwanda, attended the course and commented: “I can’t extoll enough how professional the training and trainees were personnel. The Absen team spent all day with us and were excellent. They were able to answer all of our questions and their ability to pass on their experience could not be faulted.

Paul Mutunga, a technician from Kenya has attended previous ACE training and decided to return for a refresher course.

“Working in this fast-paced changing industry, staying up to date with regards to advances in LED display technology is critical for everyone involved in the Pro-AV industry. Absen’s ACE training presents a great opportunity to learn and, therefore, make sure that my skills and knowledge are current. I attended ACE training four years ago, and despite having completed the course successfully, I still learned an enormous amount over the past three days. I intend to return for future iterations of this course so that I can continue to develop as an AV professional.”
