I’ve been trying to figure out how many individuals are currently certified as an AMX Solutions Master and a Gold Crestron Certified Programmer as well.
Based on what AMX management told me regarding my AMX certifications, I currently hold more AMX certifications than anyone else.
Not even AMX direct employees have been to as many AMX training classes as I have.
I am extremely honored and humbled….Can This Be True?
So I am wondering how many individuals in the Audio/Video industry have all of their AMX certifications ( including AMX Solutions Master ) and a Crestron Gold programming certification too.
I have asked Crestron and AMX and they are not aware of any other individuals – besides myself.
I find this somewhat hard to believe so I’m asking around on social media. Any thoughts ?
All Certifications Are Up-To-Date

[Breaking News] AMX & Crestron Audio/Video history has been made!
WOW – This is amazing!
Based on my feedback so far, no one else is completely AMX certified (that has completed all of AMX courses/certification) and a Crestron Gold (or higher) Certified Programer too.

Congrats Michael. Difficult thing to do when the C and A guys make it so difficult these days, and costly…..
Thank you, Joel for the feedback. I am extremely grateful and it is a lot of hard work — working & training. I believe some of it is cultural – what a person got used to when they got into the A/V industry. So besides the technical / programming aspects of it, the cultural side makes it even more difficult to achieve both levels of certifications.

Great job! Manufacturers need to encourage more of this not less…
Congrats!! I hold a few certifications from both companies and know the time and effort it takes to get them. That is an awesome achievement
Looking at the low number of Gold certified people this wouldn’t surprise me.
Thank you, everyone for the congratulations.
Darren, you have a good point. I was the 47th Crestron Gold certified programmer in September, 2015. The number of Crestron Gold Master Programmers are probably somewhere around 50. So I can see out of 50 people how I can be the only fully AMX certified person. This is a great honor to be the only Crestron Gold Certified Programmer and completely AMX certified as well.
