Participants may choose to sign up for the entire summit or one day of training.

“As demand for home accessibility equipment and home modifications increase, there is also an increased need for certified installers,” said Jim Greatorex, vice president of VGM Live at Home. “Being able to achieve certified installer training from seven companies in one trip is a great time-saving and cost-efficient way to train your techs.”

Many vendors require installers to be certified to install their equipment. Installers can earn these certifications during this summit.

Registration is limited and ends March 28, 2022. For the full schedule, additional details, and to register, visit our website, vgmliveathome.com/summit2022.
