Description

CEDIA Cabling and Infrastructure Technician (Hybrid) Course

    CEDIA EMEA | St Neots, Cambridgeshire, UK 

    4th - 6th October 2021 | 9:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Daily

    Course delivery:  HYBRID |  5 Online self-paced modules on CEDIA Academy (to be completed before 4th October 2021) + 3-day In-Person Training

    The CEDIA Cabling and Infrastructure Technician School and supplemental textbook have been developed to provide entry-level technicians with a highly dynamic hybrid learning experience. This educational pathway supports both newly hired employees as well as technicians with a desire to begin the journey of professional certification in the systems integration industry.

    Registration grants you access to CEDIA's CIT Pathway on CEDIA Academy - our newly developed online Learning Management System (LMS) - with over 23 hours of technical education, designed to reduce lengthy classroom time as well as allowing for completion in an asynchronous, self-paced environment.

    The online portion of this course’s content has a strong focus on providing the foundational knowledge necessary to begin working as a technician, installing cabling and infrastructure to support integrated communications and entertainment systems. Upon completion of the online prerequisite, registrants will then attend one of CEDIA’s CIT hands-on courses.

    The in-person portion of this course is taught by CEDIA subject matter experts to support and expand upon the vast technical knowledge from the CEDIA Academy. This 3-day course involves hands-on activities that are designed to give you a feel for those on-the-job tasks.

    By the completion of this course, students should be able to safely and effectively follow direction to install, terminate, and verify cabling in both new construction and retrofit environments. This education pathway provides a strong foundation for technicians who are interested in advancing their career through a deeper understanding of the fundamentals of systems integration. Technicians interested in the higher-level Integrated Systems Technician (IST) School are recommended to first complete the CIT School.
