Control4 Expands Training Facilities Across U.S. and Abroad

New and expanded facilities increase training capacity for Control4 certified technicians in Australia, China, Germany, and the United States.


Doubling down on its commitment to training, Control4 announces the opening of new international training centers abroad and the expansion of existing training facilities at home in the U.S.

The new training centers in Germany and Australia, along with the added capacity of centers in the Salt Lake City, Chicago and Shanghai, China, will help Control4 meet dealers' growing demand to train more technicians to become Control4-certified integrators.

“Interest in Control4 is growing in markets throughout the world. We are expanding our technical classroom capacity and online training materials so that authorized Control4 dealers can increase their technical expertise and required staffing to meet local installation and service demands,” says Rus Rasmussen, director of training, Control4. “With our new and expanded hands-on classroom facilities, we expect to train more than 110 technicians each week, over 5,000 each year, around the world.” 

Control4's Automation Programmer Certification is a four-day course with a certification exam, and provides attending technicians the practical skills and methods to install and program a Control4 installation, including audio/video entertainment, lighting, security and comfort solutions.

The certification is provided to all authorized Control4 dealers at no cost. Control4's hands-on training classes are available for enrollment in Australia, China, England, Germany, India, and in three locations in the United States.
