Russound, Newmarket, N.H., announced that a number of its training courses have gained accreditation by two national industry associations. The Custom Electronic Design & Installation Association (CEDIA) declared Russound Training Education and Certification (TEC) courses meet their requirements for retaining industry certification. The National Burglar & Fire Alarm Association (NBFAA) stated that Russound classes will earn security and alarm professionals the necessary credits to help them maintain their credentials.
â€œWith more states requiring that low-voltage installers obtain continuing education units in order to maintain their certification, having our courses accredited is crucial for their success, as well as Russoundâ€™s. Now our dealers, distributors and integrators can learn what they need to know about Russound products, while earning the necessary credits,â€ said Chuck Fortier, sales support and education director. â€œOur education mission has always been to provide the know-how and tools to help our dealers. Industry certification is a natural migration that meets the needs of todayâ€™s [custom electronics] dealer.â€
The company offers courses online 24 hours a day, trade show sessions and â€“ new in 2006 â€“ the â€œWired UPâ€ in-house training and â€œAll Wired Upâ€ road tour. Attendees of Russoundâ€™s in-house and road tour training sessions receive four credit hours from CEDIA and 0.8 from the NBFAA, providing them with a large part of their certification requirements.
