Melissa Ross P.E., of Whitlock, may very well be the most-certified woman in AV and in the world, too. For starters, only 3 percent of engineers in the world are women. Melissa is a P.E. (Professional Engineer). She’s a member of the Audio Engineering Society and has both Soundweb and Syn Aud Con certifications. She was certified by DigitalProjection in Blending and Warping and has a 4K projection implementation certification, as well. Of course she has her AVIXA CTS but take a look at her list of certifications from the ProAV industry: HDBT Master Installer, Networked AV Design and Commissioning certified, Induction Loop Master, Dante Levels 2 & 3 certified, Crestron DMC-D-4K certified, Harman Design Professional, Shure MXA Certification, Q-SYS Programmer Level 1, Iconix Certified, Tesira Server Certified DSP Programmer, Tesira Forte Certified Progammer, AutoCAD 3D certified and Revit certified and AVIXA Networking Architecture and Acoustical Mass Notification certified. Whew.
Oh, and she’s the Leader of the southeast Women’s Council for AVIXA. Need any more reasons to listed to this podcast? We didn’t think so.
