CEDIA Expands Registered Outreach Instructor Curriculum to Include 11 Courses

CEDIA will hold Registered Outreach Instructor “Train the Trainer� course three times in 2009

INDIANAPOLIS (March 3, 2009)—The Custom Electronic Design & Installation Association (CEDIA) has increased the number of courses available through its Registered Outreach Instructor (ROI) program from three to 11 for 2009. The new courses cover such topics as lighting control, home theater design and structured wiring, and are now available for delivery by current CEDIA ROIs.

The ROI program is a part of CEDIA’s industry outreach efforts, which work to develop greater collaboration between electronic systems contractors and professionals in the design and build industry. The program trains participating full CEDIA members to deliver approved education to design and build professionals on a regional basis. Members of the American Institute of Architects and the American Institute of Building Design receive learning units for their attendance.

Through the efforts of volunteer subject matter experts and CEDIA staff, three existing courses were updated and eight additional courses were prepared for delivery by ROIs. The new courses create additional opportunity for CEDIA members to build relationships with local industry partners and educate them about the value of residential electronic systems.

“These new courses help broaden CEDIA’s grassroots efforts to reach the design and build industry with the message that CEDIA members are the go-to professionals for residential electronic systems,� said Barrie McCorkle, CEDIA’s ROI action team chair. “It’s clear from our members’ feedback that industry partners appreciate the education, and the additional courses will help us make the most of this opportunity.�

The ROI program is exclusive to full CEDIA members. To become an ROI, members must participate in the program’s “Train the Trainer� course, which will be offered June 18–19 at CEDIA’s Training Facility in Indianapolis, Sept. 12 at CEDIA EXPO in Atlanta and later in the fall of 2009 (date to be determined).
