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 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 workshops.
The in-person portion of this course’s content is taught by CEDIA certified subject matter experts to support and expand upon the vast technical knowledge from the LMS. This three-day workshop involves comprehensive hands-on lab activities that are designed to accurately simulate on-the-job tasks in a risk-free environment.
By the completion of this course, registrants 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 .
CIT certification is a prerequisite for
CEDIA’s Integrated Systems Technician school. Technicians interested in the
higher-level Integrated Systems Technician (IST) School are recommended to first
complete the CIT School.
