CEDIA, Powerhouse Alliance Team On Training
CEDIA announced that it has teamed up with the Powerhouse Alliance to offer a series of networking training workshops, specifically through Powerhouse member Volutone.
The workshops will begin in March and are part of the pathway to prepare for CEDIA's residential networking specialist certification exam.
"Understanding and implementing a robust network has become an essential ingredient for almost every project home technology professionals undertake, and will only increase in importance," Mitchell Klein, CEDIA Professional Development Committee Chair and Director of Business Development for Universal Remote Control, Inc., said as part of the announcement.
" CEDIA's training is thorough, unbiased, relevant, and a great way for home technology professionals to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to be successful regardless of what products they are installing."
"We believe that education is critical to the success of our custom integrators," Dennis Holzer, Executive Director of Powerhouse Alliance, said. "We strive to create partnerships with our dealers, and training is an integral ingredient to help them further their product knowledge which also allows them to increase their sales offerings. CEDIA training, especially the networking classes, are a natural fit for us to help support our dealers and vendors."
Part one of the schedule will include events in Van Nuys, Calif. March 11, Las Vegas April 2 and San Diego May 7. More will come in June, July and August.
