The Custom Electronic Design and Installation Association (CEDIA), an international trade association that specializes in planning and installing electronic systems for the home, will host a mini-track of technical courses at the 2010 Electronic Security Expo (ESX). This CEDIA mini-track is intended to bring higher levels of value and thought leadership to ESX attendees.
"We're excited to be adding CEDIA's renowned technical training on custom electronics in a new mini-track at this year's ESX," said George De Marco, ESX Expo Chair. "CEDIA accreditation of a number of ESX courses means added value for ESX attendees, enabling them to earn credit toward maintaining their CEDIA certifications by attending select ESX seminars."
CEDIA, whose specializations include home networking, home automation and communication systems, media rooms, single or multi-room entertainment systems, and integrated whole-house subsystems that provide lighting control, security and HVAC systems, will offer the following courses:
  • Fundamentals of Residential Lighting and Lighting Control
  • Fundamentals of Multi-Room Audio Systems
  • Fundamentals of Home Theater Design

"CEDIA University's industry-leading education will help industry newcomers gain the valuable knowledge and skills needed to establish credibility in the residential electronic systems industry," said Utz Baldwin, CEDIA's chief executive officer.
CEDIA seminars, along with all other ESX seminars, can be purchased a-la-carte and start at $59 for members. All ESX seminars, as well as special networking events, are included in the Deluxe Registration Package.
