Catalyst AV Training Includes Lutron, Sonos, Sony and ISF Classes

Distribution group Catalyst AV will offer trainings all over the country from April until June.


Catalyst Distributing and its partners have announced a full slate of training programs to be conducted throughout the spring. 

Wally Whinna, president of Allnet Distribution and Catalyst AV board member, says these training opportunities provide Catalyst customers the latest industry education.

“This spring heralds a wide variety of trainings to meet the growing demands of the dealer/integrator,” says Whinna,”We cannot put enough emphasis on the importance of trainings and webinars. It is paramount that dealer/integrators have that hands-on skillset that is so important in today’s networked homes. The Catalyst AV Member distributors do more before, during and after training to support our dealer/integrators than anyone else out there.”
