that the recipient has the technical chops
to successfully see an AV project through
from beginning to end. It also speaks to
the recipient's understanding of industry
best practices.
Now, Marroquin has all the bragging
rights. Her work, of course, speaks for
itself. But now, she also has the certifi cation
and the experience to stand with the
best of the best.
One of the Few
Earning a CTS-D was a long-term dream
for Marroquin. But, as she observes, " A
dream does not become reality through
magic. It takes sweat, determination and
hard work. " Now, all the hard work has
paid off .
But make no mistake: It wasn't easy.
" Being a busy consultant made it diffi cult
to even try to study, " Marroquin expressed.
" I also hate failure, and I get a lot
of anxiety over the possibility of failing at
something that I know I should be good
at. " Aſt er a couple of years, she was fi nally
able to set aside some time to study a few
hours a day, cramming in as much knowledge
as possible. Her colleagues proved
indispensable, as they off ered encouragement
and support throughout. " They
helped push me to set a date, " she recalls.
" Once a hard deadline was in place, I
knew I had to fully commit to taking the
test - pass or fail. "
If a CTS certifi cation of any kind is
a long-term goal of yours, it's wise to
take hard-won advice from those who
have already earned theirs. Marroquin,
for instance, reveals some recent
changes with the CTS-D exam. " They've
reorganized some of the categories
and the percentages of questions per
category on the exam, " she explains.
" So, review those changes ASAP, if
you haven't already. " She also strongly
suggests getting the latest edition of the
AVIXA CTS-D book and giving it a read.
" It's a pretty thick book, " she says. " So,
try to digest it in chunks that make the
most sense to you. It can easily become
overwhelming. "
Read Up on the Standards
Continuing with certifi cation advice,
Marroquin suggests that, if you have
access to the AVIXA standards documents,
you should download them and read up
on the standards, as well. You heard it
here fi rst, folks!
This will be a year of wins. If you're
setting out to obtain a CTS, let's get to work!
