CEDIA has released an updated ESC-D exam — the test to earn the global organization’s highest certification credential. The improvements follow a rigorous review and feedback process that involved more than 100 participants with heavy input from industry professionals from throughout the world.
The ESC-D is targeted at industry veterans with at least five years of experience, particularly those with backgrounds as designers. The comprehensive effort to update the ESC-D exam included a Job Task Analysis Survey, beta exam, and direct engagement from a core group of volunteers. The exam’s content better aligns with the scope and demands of the profession and is crafted from a more global perspective.
CEDIA recommends that individuals interested in earning the ESC-D Certification first earn the ESC-T Certification. More than 50 people earned or renewed their ESC-D Certification during a testing event in April. CEDIA provides an online toolkit to help prepare prospective test takers, which includes a Job Task Analysis & Exam Blueprint, Advanced Residential Electronic Systems Book, and Exam Preparation Resource Guide.
Exams will continue to be offered in conjunction with CEDIA training events and through Kryterion’s 1,000+ international test centers, which makes the program accessible to everyone throughout the year.
