“This training seminar was one of the best yet” said Moe Sabourin, Director of Operations for IASCA Worldwide “We not only discussed what’s involved in being an IASCA Certified Judge, but we also had in-depth conversations about IASCA’s role with and for retailers as well. I have a strong suspicion that IASCA’s presence in the area is going to grow over the next few years and I’m personally looking forward to doing all I can to help in that growth.”

“Special thanks go to Dan Ungaro, owner of Soundscape, for opening up his shop to the attendees for the training seminar and to Howard Cantor for coordinating this training effort” Sabourin continued to say “Without their commitment to making car audio better in Texas and the surrounding region, this training would not have been a reality.”
