CEDIA now offering new hire training track
CEDIA is now offering New Hire Training Track exclusively for members. The 20+ hour track includes 10 CEDIA eCourses, as well as a hard copy of CEDIA's Fundamentals of Residential Electronic Systems book. Purchased separately, the cost of this training would exceed $800, but CEDIA members may purchase the track for a total of $299 per employee.
"This training is in direct response to what we've heard across the industry -- finding, keeping and motivating qualified talent is challenging. We want to help alleviate this pain point with tools that are affordable for small businesses and tailored to home technology professionals. New hires can take courses at their own pace to supplement their on-the-job training," Luke Amos, Director of Online Learning, said in a statement.
CEDIA's eCourses are designed with the intention of accommodating the busy schedules of home technology professionals. Participants may return to the course and pick up where they left off if they are not able to complete it in one sitting. The courses include a mix of quizzes, activities and downloadables, such as worksheets, reference documents and diagrams.
"As we design online training, we want it to be engaging and for participants to feel confident that they'll be able to take what they learned to the job site," Amos also stated.
ECourses may be accessed for one year after purchasing the new hire training track.
