CEDIA will offer the first edition of the Electronic Systems Technical Reference Manual for sale at the CEDIA Store at CEDIA EXPO 2008. The reference book — a comprehensive resource for anyone who installs, designs, or has an interest in residential electronic systems — fills the need for a single body of knowledge that references the breadth of technical information relevant to the industry.
The Electronic Systems Technical Reference Manual consolidates the information found to be most pertinent to the work of residential technicians and designers. The manual was built using knowledge from core courses in CEDIA Universitys Electronic Systems Technician and Electronic Systems Designer colleges. A team of technical writers compiled the information into reference format, and subject matter experts expounded upon the topics using accepted industry standards as references.
The manual is recommended for use as a supplement to CEDIA University education, as an in-house reference guide, and as a preparation tool for CEDIA Certification exams. Chapters are presented by discipline, and concepts progress from simple to complex within each chapter. Key terms are provided to further define concepts, and review questions allow the reader to gauge comprehension.
Content outlines for CEDIAs Advanced EST and Designer certification exams, sample exam questions, and a summary of the certification development process are all included in the appendix of the book.
The Electronic Systems Technical Reference Manual will be available in the CEDIA Store at CEDIA EXPO 2008 in Denver, CO, September 37 at a special introductory price of $89.
