In-person CEDIA training will restart at the association’s Fishers, Ind., headquarters beginning in March. The association has been providing only remote virtual training since the onset of the pandemic in early 2020. The live training will be for the newly revamped certifications announced by the association earlier this year.
The first CEDIA training course held in person will be the CEDIA Cabling and Infrastructure Technician (CIT) School from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on March 10-12, 2021. The course is actually hybrid, with some of the instruction taking place remotely, prior to the hands-on training. Registrants to the course get access to CEDIA’s CIT Pathway, a newly developed online learning management system (LMS) with 23 hours of technical education.
The online portion of the CIT course’s content has a focus on providing the foundational knowledge necessary to begin working as a technician installing cabling and infrastructure to support integrated communications and entertainment systems. Upon completion of the online prerequisite, registrants will then attend one of CEDIA’s CIT workshops.
The in-person portion of this course’s content is taught by CEDIA certified subject matter experts to support and expand upon the vast technical knowledge from the LMS. This three-day workshop involves comprehensive hands-on lab activities that are designed to accurately simulate on-the-job tasks in a risk-free environment.
The second in-person training is the Integrated Systems Technician (IST) School course held 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on March 15-19, 2021.
The CEDIA Integrated Systems Technician School and supplemental textbook have been developed to provide CIT-certified technicians with a highly dynamic hybrid learning experience. This educational pathway supports technicians and industry professionals with a desire to continue the journey of professional certification in the field of systems integration.
Registration grants you access to CEDIA’s Integrated Systems Technician Pathway and 20 hours of technical education, designed to reduce lengthy classroom time as well as allowing for completion in an asynchronous, self-paced environment.
The online portion of this course’s content has a focus on providing the specific technical knowledge necessary to effectively carry out the duties of a lead technician dealing with the various applications of technology installation, integration, and configuration.
Upon completion of the online prerequisite, registrants will then attend one of CEDIA’s IST workshops. The in-person portion of this course’s content is taught by CEDIA certified subject matter experts in a hands-on lab.
