Attended the HAA HT1, HT2 and HT3 as an enthusiast to improve my own home theater with a plan of becoming an installer one day. Gerry is a fantastic instructor and he manages to go through the material and relate to "real world" experiences to make it even more interesting. The HT3 was especially interesting as it is rare to get the chance to do so many practical exercises and actually "learn" what to listen for - this is not something you can study in a text book. Highly recommended!

It is my first time to take part in the workshop. It covers a lot of professional knowledge points, software and hardware and it let us enter a fantastic Audio world. It let us see a clear and objective data instead of an indistinct feeling. It enlarged our marketing service area and connected us more closely with our customers.

HAA's training and learning has given me a new understanding of all aspects of home theater design. The content of the course is very rich, and the theoretical summary and experimental methods are applicable to our practical design. I am very grateful! HAA的培训学习,使得我对家庭影院设计中各方面有了全新的认识。课程的内容很丰富,理论的总结和实验部分的方法都是适用于我们实践设计。特别感谢!

Attended HT1 Adviser Certification at CEDIA 2019, and it was hands down the best class I have ever attended while at a CEDIA expo. Gerry structured the class so that you could either easily learn the fundamentals of good theater design, or re-enforce those fundamentals you may already be aware of. I would highly recommend the class for anyone seriously interested in Home Theater and Room Acoustics.

Gerry is one of those guys that is much more than meets the eye or shall I say ear (LOL). Not only is he an excellent tutor in the subject of acoustics but he has a great personality. I really appreciated his friendly nature and willingness to help at every level. I highly recommend Gerry's classes and look forward to attending other courses in the future. Keep up the good work Gerry and thank you !

First of all, I salute Mr. Gerry Lemay! Through this HAA Level I and Level II course study, I led into the acoustical design palace of home theater. When making films, artists express what they want to show to the audience through pictures and sounds. And the restoration of voice is very important. Obviously, Professor Gerry has acquired profound knowledge in this field through his years of research. I can benefit greatly from listening to his courses. I am looking forward to learning HAA3. This brings HAA Level 1 and Level 2 Student Li Yong

I attended HAA-THX HT1 and HT2 training at Mumbai. The training was really good and provided great insights into acoustics framework and the importance of speaker positioning, level calibrations, subwoofer positioning, equalisation, acoustic treatments etc. The turbocal calibration lab also really helped to understand step by step way of making a great sounding speaker/room setup.

It is worth investing 5 days time in training. Workshop gives you a clear insight of possible solutions to any kind of Room. Further Exam Gives you a clear Insight of Sonic Metrics and Acoustics

I have recently finished 3 levels HAA seminar in Ansbach, Germany. It was a great learning experience. Gerry is a great presenter and practitioner, who not only teach theory but also share a lot of tips and tricks during final 3rd level theater design and calibration workshop. I recommend it to anyone involved in home theater business. I also want to thank to Ascendo for hospitality and fantastic home theatre experience at the evenings.

Have just finished the HAA (3 Levels) training in Melbourne, Australia. It was simply great. Gerry is very good presenter, down to earth, and very matter of fact about the material. He does not push product, but just simply lays out .... this is how you do this. If you listen, you learn! I would suggest that anyone taking on the courses, do some reading on sound wave theory, this helps dramatically when dealing with the more difficult topic areas of room mode analyzes, etc. The cherry in the pie regarding these courses is the final Level III course, where you basically tear a room apart and start rebuilding the room from ground zero to a room which could be considered an auditory nirvana showplace. Well done, Gerry

I just attended the Melbourne Classes at Synergy April 9-13 2018. I came back to re take the refresher classes after more than 8 years ago at Illinois. All I can say is wow! Gerry is a master trainer and despite having my Level II Cert from way back, I learned so much more by taking the refresher... The AVPro Software combined with AudioTools was just another level from the older gear I began with! Looking forward to now updating my Certs with the addition of HT1,2 & 3 If I was to say anything as far as a wish list goes...I'd say another day for the HT3. Thanks again Gerry!

I went through HAA-THX level I II III in Amsterdam and I have to thank Gerry. It was very interesting and I learned a lot. I recommend it to everyone.

Even after 2 decades in the industry I found the class to be insightful, fun, and worthwhile. The problem with a lot of professionals is that we know it all, and often times its important we take a step back and look at things from a different angle. While I already knew a lot of material in the class, I found it useful to really understand the why's and how's, especially useful when explaining to my clients the reasoning and science behind the material rather than just "trust me i know what i'm talking about." Highly recommended for the curious, the passionate, and the professional.

I was able to attend the HAA-THX level 1 training at CEDIA 2017 and I'm glad I did. It was an informative and reinforcing training. Many "standard" home theater concepts are expanded upon and myths are debunked. Factual, repeatable techniques are discussed and real world applications are kept in mind. I look forward to taking the level II and III classes when I can, Gerry is a great instructor.

I went through THX Level I training at CES and was referred to HAA training level I & II. HAA training was more entailed to home theater and more advanced educational training. Matthew Bell
