The Custom Electronics Design Installation and Association (CEDIA) has announced Installer Level I Exam registration has increased 251 percent and Designer Exam registration has grown by 203 percent compared to this time last year. In addition, total registration jumped an average of 192 percent over total registration in July 2004.
This year’s Electronic Systems Technician (EST) Boot Camp, Installer Level II Certification Review, and the Designer Certification Review have sold out for EXPO 2005, which is scheduled for Sept. 6-11. The Electronic Systems Project Management (ESPM) classes are also filling fast, with some classes already sold out. According to Margaret Sheehan, Senior Director of Professional Development, there are many valuable CEDIA classes and full-day workshops available throughout the EXPO class schedule to fulfill education requirements and aspirations.
Additional 2005 dates for the EST Boot Camp include Oct. 5-7, Nov. 16-18, and Dec. 7-9 at CEDIA headquarters in Indianapolis. In 2006, more than 50 of the educational offerings will be conveniently available across the United States.
“This level of overflow is an indication of the strong demand for CEDIA certification by our members,” says Billilynne Keller, CEDIA Executive Director. “CEDIA University continues to grow vigorously, and we’re pleased to have this kind of challenge ahead of us.”
CEDIA University is making it more convenient to achieve certification by delivering the Installer Level I and Installer Level II Review classes and Certification exams online. This service will become available this August through CEDIA University. CEDIA is working with the Berlitz Language and Learning Centers in nearly every major US city to offer the exams in a secure, proctored environment.
