THX Joins Forces with The Home Acoustics Alliance

Three Levels of THX-HAA Training Courses will be Offered at CEDIA 2016

San Francisco, CA – July 25, 2016 – THX Ltd. has partnered with Home Acoustics Alliance (HAA) to create premium home theater training courses and further enhance the THX® Certified Professional Training Program. The comprehensive program is designed to help custom integrators achieve the best possible home theater experience in any environment. From multi- purpose family rooms to dedicated home theaters, these courses include theory and hands-on workshops on the essentials of home theater equipment, technologies, and high-performance acoustic design.

“I’ve always respected THX’s integrity and their unwillingness to compromise on performance. THX® Certified products are some of the best home theater components in the world and it’s important to THX, their CE partners and the consumer, that this equipment be installed and set- up properly. That has always been the goal of HAA training courses and throughout the years we received a reputation for offering the industry’s most comprehensive training programs. Now we’re thrilled to partner with THX in educating the world’s best custom integrators,” said Gerry Lemay, Director of HAA.

The THX-HAA Home Theater Training program is comprised of three certification levels totaling 6 days of training: Home Theater Advisor (1-day course), Home Theater Integrator (2-day course), and Home Theater Advanced Integrator (3-day course). Qualifying students will receive certifications from THX and HAA and will be listed on the websites of both companies. To support the Home Theater and Video Calibration training programs, THX is launching an all- new Professional’s Portal hosted on THX.com where students can access course materials, exams, and Certified Professional resources. The portal will be available only to those students who take THX home theater or video calibration training courses.

“Over the past three decades we’ve had over 5,000 individuals take THX training courses demonstrating their commitment to providing consumers with the best audio visual experience possible. Today we renew our commitment to the integrator community by partnering with one of the most respected names in the industry (HAA) and launching a new Professionals web portal to be a resource for those who entrust us with their learning,” said Bill Rusitzky, THX’s Chief Revenue Officer.
