New for 2021: AVSS Extension

The International Association of Venue Managers (IAVM) understands that as the world changes the importance of continuing your professional development changes as well. By enrolling in the Academy for Venue Safety and Security (AVSS), you’re able to build your knowledge, skills, and expertise in the risk management core competencies to secure all Public Assembly Facilities.

IAVM and AVSS play important roles in supporting our members, other organizations, and all respective communities during these turbulent times and realize the importance of continuing education within our Public Assembly Facilities without compromising the health and well-being of our attendees.

The International Association of Venue Managers, the Venue Safety and Security Committee and the AVSS Faculty have explored other options to expand our safety and security offerings through AVSS to a virtual format also known as AVSS Extension (AVSS/E). Our goal is to provide virtual training opportunities in 2021 with anticipation of returning to AVSS in-person training once the current health safety concerns are resolved.

AVSS Extension does not take the place of the current AVSS Curriculum however, it will allow attendees to stay current with expert driven safety and security sessions complimenting the Academy for Venue Safety and Security.


Thank you to our global partners.
