    Certification brings a level of professionalism and confidence. That confidence flows to the client looking to hire the integrator as it establishes credibility. There is currently no other method a potential client has to delineate a highly skilled integrator from one who is not, other than certification.

CIT Certification

CIT Certification

This certification represents a technician whose primary task is to perform basic infrastructure wiring for low-voltage technology systems in a residential or commercial setting. Certified technicians are able to use proper tools and techniques, follow instructions per project documentation, and operate in a safe and professional manner on the jobsite. They understand the basic function of wiring and termination components being installed and are aware of common equipment and systems applications which they may assist with mounting and installing during later phases of a project. While these individuals typically work under supervision, this certification indicates to employers that they are jobsite ready, can work billable hours performing cabling and installation support, and have foundational knowledge to support additional training on equipment and technology systems.
