The organisation is offering further opportunities to become CEDIA Certified as part of its autumn/winter education programme. Part of CEDIA's structured curriculum, the CEDIA Certification programme is said to establish "clear, objective standards in residential electronic systems design and integration."
"We are committed to offering our members this benchmark of knowledge and understanding at education events up and down the country, and participation and success provides our members with a key competitive advantage," said CEDIA's education manager, Peter Aylett.
The Association will run week-long courses in September for both installers and designers. Installer School (21-25 September) is set to provide a solid technical and engineering foundation, as well as complete preparation for the Installer Level 1 examination at the end of the week. Meanwhile, Design school (28 September - 2 October) is an advanced course for those who have already passed Installer Level 1, and provides an insight into the design of integrated residential systems and how individual subsystems can be combined into a properly documented, integrated whole.
There will also be an opportunity to sit the Installer Level 1 and Designer Level 1 exams at the Business and Technology Forum and AGM in Leeds on October 5, and again, a month later at CEDIA's dedicated training facility in Cambridgeshire.
Those keen to break into the industry will also have a chance to learn more at the Technical Foundation Course on 3-4 November. Oriented towards those new to the world of residential CI, this two-day CEDIA course provides a basic grounding and technical overview.
CEDIA Certification is a mandatory requirement of membership and means that all UK and Irish CEDIA ESP members need at least one certified member of staff within each company.
