Indianapolis, IN — CEDIA is partnering with david, LLC and Digital Sales Group NY, to deliver eight training events in its new Westbury, New York, training facility beginning in April. Among the events to be offered include CEDIA’s popular Electronic Systems Technician (EST) Basic Residential Boot Camp, business courses, and the Electronic Systems Professional Alliance (ESPA) certification review and exam.
According to Dave Silkin, president of david, “Creating a well educated workforce in the CEDIA channel is the main goal of the partnership between CEDIA and our companies. Both Digital Sales Group and david are constantly approached by companies looking to hire qualified and properly trained technicians.”
CEDIA’s EST Basic Residential Boot Camp is a three-day event that is designed for technicians with a year or less of experience in the residential electronic systems industry. It combines classroom learning with hands-on exercises that demonstrate the typical tasks and challenges faced during an installation.
Students will have the opportunity to experience the same hands-on training at the david facility as they would in CEDIA’s Indianapolis training facility. The Westbury facility will house building structures that are used by students for hands-on activities to learn the basic residential installation skills such as pulling cable, terminating connectors, and installing outlets, boxes, and in-wall speakers. This is the first time since 2002 that electronic system professionals will have the opportunity to take CEDIA’s EST Basic Residential Boot Camp outside of its Indianapolis Training Facility.
