CEDIA® has announced that CEDIA Certification exams will now be available through Kryterion Global Testing Solutions, which has more than 1,000 testing centres worldwide.
“As part of our commitment to home technology professionals, wherever they might be, we’re pleased to be able offer our Certification exams on a truly global scale” Comments David Whitney, CEDIA Certification Manager. “Members who previously could only take certification exams at the CEDIA show, ISE, or at another CEDIA training event now have the flexibility to take the exam close to home and the option to renew their current CEDIA Certification online.”
Individuals looking to sign up for a certification exam can purchase a voucher to take the exam through the CEDIA website. After purchase, a link will be provided to a Kryterion login, allowing individuals to select an exam time and location.
CEDIA has also introduced new options for CEDIA Certification renewal. Integrators can re-take the exam that is the current equivalent version for their Certification from the convenience of their own computer. To begin the renewal exam, integrators will need to register online and download Kryterion’s Secure Sentinel software.
CEDIA has created a new set of CEDIA Certification logos and added a digital badging programme to help integrators market their Certifications to both homeowners and to their fellow industry professionals. The digital badges, available through BadgeCert, allow integrators to add digital certification badges to email signatures, LinkedIn accounts, websites, and other social media platforms.
CEDIA Certification exams are also administered at select CEDIA Training Events, including ISE 2018. Attendees will have the opportunity to take the three main advanced certifications available — Electronic Systems Certified Technician (ESC-T), Electronic Systems Certified Designer (ESC-D), and Electronic Systems Certified Networking Specialist (ESC-N) in Room 201 on Friday 9th February.
