CEDIA Certification Volunteers

CEDIA relies on volunteer professionals from the industry to ensure that exams are accurate, up-to-date and that the program is best meeting the needs of the industry. Volunteers receive training and support from certification staff to carry out their duties. Persons who hold a CEDIA Certification are highly encouraged to participate and will earn CEUs for their time spent. Questions regarding volunteering can be directed to certification@cedia.org
