In a continuing effort to stay at the cutting edge of technology for the connected home with its relationship to the integrated security, fire and life safety market, CEDIA, has partnered with SecurityCEU.com to launch an enhanced training program for their entire membership.
Through the partnership, CEDIA, the Custom Electronic Design and Installation Association, will increase its current training curriculum by more than 55 hours of online content.
CEDIA represents 3,500 member companies worldwide and serves more than 22,000 industry professionals that manufacture, design and integrate goods and services for the connected home.
For more than 10 years, SecurityCEU.com has provided licensing, compliance, certification and continuing education solutions to the security, fire and life safety industry. SecurityCEU.com boasts an enormous catalog of online training covering industry topics such as IP networking, IP video, structured wiring, and customer service.
The SecurityCEU.com courses serve as foundational training for professionals entering the converging worlds of security and home automation. CEDIA members benefit greatly from exposure to the topics offered, CEDIA reported in a press release. Additional benefits include the ability for CEDIA members to gain and maintain industry licenses and certifications. All SecurityCEU.com courses are approved for CEUs at the national and state levels. SecurityCEU.com also offers a full compliance management system that provides automation of the licensing process as well as full metrics and measurement.
CEDIA members gain the benefit of access to this online library of courses for a 20 percent discount from the price offered at SecurityCEU.com. Corporate rates are also available allowing organizations with five or more students to gain additional discounting.
Matt Oelker, director of online learning for CEDIA, said, “CEDIA understands the importance of the converging markets and the need for high quality, comprehensive training. When our members are required to show proof of their skills, they use this training to provide evidence that they have completed the necessary courses as a validation of baseline security skills relating to our industry.”
Courses can be purchased a la carte, but the most popular option is to purchase the library subscription, which provides members access to all the courses in the CEDIA catalog for one low price. This license is for 12 months of access.
“The SecurityCEU.com courses have proven to be an excellent resource for the industry and a competitive advantage for companies,” said Connie Moorhead, president of The CMOOR Group and SecurityCEU.com. “More and more, skills in integration and IP networking are being required to understand contemporary security products and their role in integrated home automation systems.”
