CEDIA Outreach Instructor (COI) "Train the Trainer" Workshop

Jun 15, 2017 1:00 PM - 12:00 PM
Location: New York, NY

For a growing number of integrators, there’s a preferred method for reaching architects, designers, and builders and keeping that contact list robust and engaged: become a CEDIA Outreach Instructor.

A CEDIA member who’s interested in becoming a CEDIA Outreach Instructor (COI) is required to take a day-long “Train the Trainer” class. That class unlocks all the COI courseware for the instructor — once the initial session is passed and paid for, access to all the materials CEDIA has developed for the program is free.

“Actively giving presentations to industry partners through the COI program elevated my company and myself to ‘thought leader’ status in the eyes of the people I addressed. They’ll often ask very good questions about our industry; questions that not only they wanted to know, but questions their clients – who might be our future clients -- are asking.”

- Josh Christian, COI

There’s homework ahead of the “Train the Trainer” class, including a presentation that COIs are expected to know cold — an instructor is evaluated on their presentation by their peers. That evaluation determines whether or not a trainer-to-be is ready to teach.

Participants will learn:

  • Proper presentation techniques
  • Best practices for class preparation
  • Useful communication and questioning techniques

This eight-hour course is offered pass/fail and has a CEU value of 8.0.
