Stampede University Online Courses Approved For Continuing Education By CEDIA

Reinforcing its commitment to provide dealers with the highest quality of continuing education courses, Stampede Presentation Products Inc., North America’s largest and oldest dedicated ProAV distributor, today announced that all of the online courses offered by Stampede University (www.stampedeuniversity.com) have been approved for Continuing Education Units by CEDIA. Stampede is the industry’s only ProAV distributor to have its entire library of online courses approved for CEDIA CEUs.

According to Stampede President & COO Kevin Kelly, the approval by CEDIA follows a complete redesign of Stampede University that became effective in January 2012. As part of this initiative, the company introduced a completely new series of integrated online courses that allow dealers to learn at their own pace and on their own schedule. Each course features built-in LMS (learning management system) administrative tools that track and certify each learner’s progress through each and every course.

“What’s more,” Kelly emphasized, “Stampede University’s training programs now include more business-oriented courses, including courses on transitions and mergers and acquisitions, as well as a consulting program designed to help residential dealers develop commercial markets and vice versa. The addition of CEDIA approval now makes our course offerings even more valuable to dealers seeking to maintain their CEDIA certification. I am very proud to note that Stampede is the only ProAV distributor in North America to offer its dealers their complete catalog of courses for official CEDIA CEUs.”

The new course offerings come in addition to Stampede University’s already substantial collection of dealer and integrator learning aids found on the website. These include training materials in the form of webinars, how-to videos, white papers and other media that cover the breadth of the AV technology experience from video walls to distance-learning technology, and represent large numbers of major equipment manufacturers, including Hitachi, Sharp, VUKUNET, InFocus, NEC and Samsung.

According to CEDIA, the CEU Provider program is open to members only. Member companies wishing to become CEU providers may submit educational courses to CEDIA for pre-approved CEU awards. Companies requesting to become CEDIA CEU providers must complete and submit the CEU Provider Petition Form for approval. CEDIA evaluates each submission on its length, course description, and learning objectives.
