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.

“With 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 Russound’s. Now our dealers, distributors and integrators can learn what they need to know about Russound products, while earning the necessary credits,” said Chuck Fortier, sales support and education director. “Our 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 today’s [custom electronics] dealer.”

The company offers courses online 24 hours a day, trade show sessions and – new in 2006 – the “Wired UP” in-house training and “All Wired Up” road tour. Attendees of Russound’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.
