Artemis Vision and VAIA Technologies certified AIA system integrators
AIA has announced that Artemis Vision (Denver, CO) and VAIA Technologies LLC (Boston, MA) have completed the necessary requirements to become AIA Certified System Integrators.

"Becoming an AIA Certified System Integrator is an exciting step forward for VAIA Technologies" said Scott R. Crawley, President of VAIA Technologies. "Customers looking for automated solutions to complex product and process inspection tasks, increasingly want to engage with partners who can provide fully turnkey solutions – From system design, right through to installation, service and support. This means that selecting the right partner is an incredibly important decision. Customers want to be certain at the outset, that their chosen partner has a level of capability, expertise and experience that they can rely on throughout the engagement. The AIA is a well-respected organization with a rigorous qualification process, and our Certification will further reassure customers that selecting VAIA Technologies for their vision integration needs will be a great decision - one that can be relied on."
"The team at Artemis Vision is thrilled to become an AIA Certified Vision Integrator. Certification provides further assurance to our customers that our company meets the level of experience and skill set desired to specialize in vision system integration," expressed Tom Brennan, President at Artemis Vision. "Choosing a knowledgeable partner to implement a successful vision system is a crucial part of the process, and we hope that customers will find the value in an independent third party, such as AIA, that continues to validate our engineering skills and processes."
AIA's Director of Market Analysis, Alex Shikany said, "Artemis Vision and VAIA Technologies have proven their experience in vision system integration. We are proud to announce that they can now use their certification as a verification of critical qualifications to their customers.

AIA's Certified System Integrator criteria includes: years of vision system integration experience; skill level of employees (with a minimum number of advanced level Certified Vision Professionals); number of successful integration projects completed each year; and verifiable experience in the industries they wish to show specialization.
One of the elements of the program is the Certified Vision Professional-Advanced level achievement by an integrator's personnel. Both the CVP-Basic and Advanced courses are now available to be taken online through AIA's website. The CVP-Basic curriculum is offered free of charge, and the Advanced level training is available via subscription.
