In 2019, the Concept AV family tragically lost a valued member of the team to cancer. Chris Bowra was an individual with a wealth of knowledge and wisdom that he shared selflessly with many.
Aptly named after Chris Bowra, The CB Internship seeks to promote the AV industry as an engaging pathway for STEM students and champion the creation of AV industry careers. Through this paid part time internship program, participants will work closely with and be mentored by accredited and experienced Concept AV engineers. They are to learn the intricate functions of an audio-visual solution, with a primary focus on programming and systems testing. As recognised industry leaders in this field, Concept AV is pleased to provide students the opportunity to develop wide-ranging audio visual experience whilst they complete their degrees, contributing to the exceptional professional advancement and going beyond the established standard within the industry.
Concept AV is proudly partnered with Crestron for the CB Internship. Participants will work towards achieving their Crestron certifications and skill development in programming technologies, made free of charge specifically for the internship.
On the 10th September 2021, we formally launched the internship program and named the first recipient, Justin Bedwany.
Justin began working at Concept AV as an Asset Control assistant in 2015 and was fortunate to have met and been mentored by Chris before his passing. Now studying Cybersecurity at Macquarie University, it is only fitting that Justin be the first to continue Chris’ legacy.
