Indianapolis, Indiana

Jump-Start Your Home Tech Career

CEDIA’s Basic Residential Boot Camp focuses on the knowledge and skills needed to install low-voltage infrastructure in the home. It features a combination of classroom instruction and hands-on learning in a lab that emulates residential new construction and retrofit installation. During the labs, you will complete installation tasks and test procedures with an emphasis on the use and maintenance of proper job documentation. Presentation materials reflect current industry practices and standards.


  • » Cable and connector fundamentals
  • Residential codes, standards, and jobsite safety
  • Distributed audio and video in the homes
  • Jobsite professionalism


Several hours of hands-on lab activities are included. Students will mark outlet locations, label and run cabling, terminate cables with various connectors, complete connections to wall plates and a central distribution location, perform verification testing, and complete a retrofit cable run and speaker installation in a finished wall.


This three-day learning opportunity is recommended for anyone interested in beginning a career in the residential technology industry.


In addition to the printed course guidebook, participants will also receive a copy of the CEDIA Fundamentals of Residential Electronic Systems book ($110 value).
