The HomeTechnology Specialists of America (HTSA) are the first industry buying association with a curriculum that has been approved by CEDIA for Continuing Education Units (CEU) towards the CEDIA Professional Certification program.
Partnering closely with CEDIA, HTSA is the first buying association to be able to offer CEU credits for attending the HTSA conferences and summits. Each CEDIA Certified HTSA member can now receive 2 CEU credits per 2-day meeting attended, acquiring up to 4 of the 10 CEU credits needed annually, to meet the 30 CEU requirement for certification renewal over 36 months. HTSA will award each member with a certificate at the conclusion of each conference to document the member's participation and completion of their continuing education through the HTSA.
"It is our goal to make CEDIA certification as valuable and accessible as possible," said Jeff Gardner, director of technical training for CEDIA. "By attaching CEU credits to HTSA offerings we are creating a benefit not only to our organizations but also to home technology professionals who are working to maintain their certifications."
Bob Hana, HTSA managing director added, "The certification credit of our conferences is a testament to the quality programming HTSA builds into every session at our events. We have quickly evolved past the historical role of the buying group to an agile, thought-leading, market-driven partner who delivers value built-in to ever service we provide."
