Fibaro Kicks Off North American Installer Training Initiative to Attract Skilled Professionals
FIBARO, a global manufacturer of wireless intelligent home automation and control devices, is growing its installer base in the U.S. and has built out an aggressive training program to provided skilled professionals — including residential and commercial AV installers, electricians and practitioners within the construction industry — with the practical knowledge and expertise required to specify and install Fibaro systems.
The certified Fibaro system installer training can be completed in one day and has been designed to provide attendees with practical knowledge of the design, configuration and implementation of the Fibaro smart home system. The program begins with a 101 training and evolves into hands-on training provided directly from Fibaro or by a specialized Fibaro distributor.
“Fibaro’s installer training provided the perfect mix of product training and a detailed introduction to the smart home, as well as the Z-Wave platform,” said Justin Lee, a recently certified Fibaro installer from Ergo Structures Inc. located in Toronto, Canada. “There are very few smart home platform manufacturers offering such detail-oriented training sessions; it was a great opportunity to not only learn about the products, but the broader smart home installation market as well.”
Completion of the training earns each participant an individualized certificate verifying the recipient as a Fibaro system expert and access to the Fibaro Academy portal which supplies dedicated professionals with advanced training and video materials as well as sales and technical support during the installation and design of the newly certified installer’s first customers. Successful completion of the certified installation training is also the first step to becoming a Fibaro dealer and the ability to buy directly from one of Fibaro’s certified distributors.
To date, Fibaro has trained over 3,500 professional installers worldwide, the company reported. The certified Fibaro system installer training is free and those interested in enrolling can do so via www.fibaro.com/installer or by contacting a current Fibaro distributor for more details.
