CEDIA's Certification programme is recognised as a sign of quality standards in the home technology industry. Professionals with CEDIA Certification assure home technology expertise and work of the highest quality.

Five careers tracks have been developed in conjunction with CEDIA International to meet the needs of today’s home technology professionals. The careers tracks are: Technicians, Designers, Sales People, Project Managers and Business Owners. In the fast developing world of technology, professionals must constantly update their skills to keep up with this growing industry - whether it is learning to speak IP, dealing with the contractual issues on larger projects, or managing cash flow in an expanding market. CEDIA education will help delegates achieve this.
