With training being a fundamental aspect of trade support, AWE is widening its education offering by hosting some of CEDIA’s most popular training courses. AWE’s headquarters, Alexander House uniquely lends itself to CEDIA education, as it includes a stunning show apartment and Dolby Atmos home cinema room, which allows attendees to train within a real life integrated environment.  Already the base for AWE’s award-winning Smart Home Academy, the facilities are perfectly suited for enhancing some of CEDIA’s training, in particular, the Home Cinema courses. “AWE is acknowledged for setting the standard in the custom install industry for products, customer service, technical support and an exceptionally high level of training,” explains Stuart Tickle, managing director at AWE.  “Alongside this, we fully support the works of CEDIA and are dedicated to helping further the accessibility of education to the CEDIA member base. It therefore made perfect sense for us to become the southern base for CEDIA education courses. Using the products and systems integrated throughout the building, we provide technology professionals with industry leading facilities to understand how to install the latest products safely, efficiently and professionally.” A range of courses including CEDIA’s popular Residential Networking and Smart Home Wiring workshops are scheduled to kick start a succession of education courses at Alexander House in 2015. Other courses include CEDIA’s recently expanded Home Cinema Design package and its brand new Lighting Design Package. A full list of CEDIA Education courses at Alexander House in 2015 are as follows: -  Residential Networking - 25th March -  Wireless Residential Networking - 26th March -  Home Cinema Design Package (2 days) - 21st – 22nd April * Home Cinema for Designers * Home Cinema Design Workshop -  Lighting Design Package (2 days) - 19th – 20th May * Introduction to Lighting Fundamentals * Residential Lighting Control “Making training available at new geographical locations, as well as online, is part of a new strategy to make our training more convenient and a major step towards making education available to an even broader audience” comments Simon Buddle, Education Director for CEDIA EMEA. The CEDIA sessions will run alongside the existing Smart Home Academy training.  The next available training dates are as follows: -              Foundation Workshop - 3rd March -              Single Room Control, with URC Complete Control - 4th March -              Whole House Integration, with URC Total Control - 10th March -              HDMI & 4K Distribution, with HDanywhere - 11th March To book onto CEDIA training at AWE headquarters, visit www.cediaeducation.com.
