Make the most of Monday at ISE 2018 with CEDIA education

CEDIA’s exceptional ISE 2018 education programme kicks off on Monday 5 February with invaluable, full-day training sessions covering Home Cinema Design, Advanced Residential Networking, Lighting Control, Rack Building and Design Documentation.

These in-depth courses will give attendees a fantastic opportunity to learn best practice, grow their knowledge and enhance their skills in critical technical areas.

“CEDIA training is essential for integrators, seeking to master these important disciplines,” said Aneta Armova-Levin, CEDIA’s education manager. “Taught by renowned subject experts, these one-day sessions take place in the CEDIA Professional Development area at the RAI, the day before the show floor opens. They provide a great chance for attendees to maximise their visit to Integrated Systems Europe.”

Places can be booked online at and are priced at €250 per session.

For more information on these sessions, check out the course descriptions below.

09:30 – 17:30 Advanced Home Cinema Design Workshop
Guy Singleton, Owner, Imagine This
This course will equip you with the design skills necessary to deliver effective and consistent cinema designs at every price point. By going beyond the CEDIA Home Cinema Design Workshop, this course will delve deeper into engineering design, room acoustics management, immersive audio implementation, and premium video performance. This fast-paced and intensive course will include discussions, practical exercises and demonstrations that will challenge attendees to take their cinema designs to new levels of performance and profit.

09:30 – 17:30 Advanced Residential Networking
Geoff Meads, Managing Director, Presto AV
Once the basics of IP Networking are understood, there are many options to extend IP networks and create a truly integrated home environment. This course will advance on from the Residential Networking course, exploring in depth the skills and knowledge previously gained. Attendees will understand and be able to confidentially install a robust, secure, and more complex network following a combination of classroom and practical exercises using a variety of networking equipment.

09:30 – 17:30 Mastering Residential Lighting Control
Simon Buddle, Education Director, CEDIA
Aimed at developing installation engineers and designers who have a basic understanding of lighting control, this course will focus on the practical application of lighting control in the residential market. Covering regulations and safety, energy consumption and other environmental factors, this hands-on course will help attendees identify, solve and implement complex lighting control solutions. It will also cover; common pitfalls, establishing best practice for lighting, dimming and shading, and will leave students with a strong understanding of the complete technical solution for lighting control systems.

09:30 – 17:30 Rack Building and Wiring Fundamentals
Nick Pidgeon, Director, Visualization
This course will provide attendees with the clear, structural methodology required for rack building, from planning through to future servicing. It will explore industry best practice, the importance of wiring choices, and standard approaches which can be applied to projects of all sizes. Attendees can expect to gain a deeper understanding into the different types of racks, and appreciate how to apply the correct knowledge for overcoming issues with equipment placement, wiring, connectivity, and rack build as a whole.

09:30 – 17:30 Design Documentation
Keith Jones, Partner, Designflow
This course will explore and explain the documents that make up a successful project; from architectural plans, schematics, and wiring schedules, to specifications and final client sign off. Attendees will learn how to read and understand documents issued by others during the project process and how to prepare, draw, and write their own. Along with detailed drawing and documentation packs, the course will examine power requirements, heat output for racks and spatial considerations amongst others.
