Education Pathways

CEDIA's Certification program is recognised throughout the industry to promote to consumers that companies with CEDIA Certified employees offer uncompromising quality and expertise. Currently there are four Certification exams: EST2 CEDIA Certified Installer, EST3 Advanced Installer, ESD Designer Level 1, and Home Cinema Design Specialist. Whilst Certification is not mandatory for CEDIA Membership, those companies employing certified individuals will be promoted on the CEDIA Member 'Finder Service.'
