CEDIA members commonly ask CEDIA what it’s doing to promote members to architects, builders, remodelers, and interior designers.
Early in 2016, CEDIA will be presenting education at Design & Construction Week 2016, which features the co-location of the NAHB International Builders’ Show (IBS) and NKBA’s Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS).
CEDIA isn’t the only group that can educate this audience; you can help too. CEDIA offers resources to help you assert your value to the adjacent trade audiences through the registered outreach instructor (ROI) program.
Currently CEDIA is an approved provider of continuing education for eight industry groups including the American Institute of Architects, the American Society of Interior Designers, and the National Association of Home Builders. CEDIA Registered Outreach Instructor (ROI) program provides 19 approved courses including hiding technology, lighting control, designing dedicated theaters, and integrating audio. The ROI program helps establish your company as the technology expert within your area, boosts profitability and referrals, and differentiates you from the competition.
To become an ROI, you must be a CEDIA member and you must pass the “Train the Trainer” course. CEDIA will come to your location if you:
1. Assemble a minimum of eight individuals for the eight-hour course,
2. Provide appropriate meeting space and necessary audiovisual equipment, and
3. Make food and beverage arrangements.
After becoming an ROI, CEDIA provides advertising and marketing resources to help you get started. Once you have passed the Train the Trainer course your company will be listed on the CEDIA Finder’s Service as an ROI, so those industry partners who are looking for training can find you easily.
