CEDIA Celebrates Successful City & Guilds Course Participants

City and Guilds

At the beginning of 2016, CEDIA launched two new courses that were recognised by City & Guilds, the international governing body for training.

Following a large number of subscribers throughout the first half of the year, CEDIA is celebrating the first wave of newly qualified CEDIA Smart Home Technicians and Smart Home Designers.

Recognised City & Guilds training courses are an industry standard, and are valued by employers across the world, helping individuals develop their talents and abilities to further their career progression. CEDIA’s Smart Home Technician programme is awarded to participants who successfully complete twelve training courses, including the CEDIA Boot Camp, ESC Technical and Networking schools. Attendees who successfully sit the ESC-T and ESC-N certification are presented with a City & Guilds accredited Smart Home Technician certificate.

Similarly, participants who successfully complete CEDIA’s Smart Home Designer track, featuring eight training courses from the Designer School, Lighting and Home Cinema Design training packages, and pass the ESC-D certification, are presented with the City & Guilds accredited Smart Home Designer certificate.

Wendy Griffiths, Executive Director of CEDIA EMEA comments, “We are thrilled with the feedback from participants completing CEDIA’s City & Guilds accredited courses and encourage all CEDIA members to take advantage of this fantastic endorsement and opportunity. As an international governing body for training, those who achieve City & Guilds qualification are instantly recognised as a skilled professional in smart home technology across the globe, making business opportunities in countries such as India, South Africa and UAE, where there is an ever growing interest in smart home technology, more viable and obtainable.”
