CEDIA will offer separate two-day Designer Boot Camps and an expanded five-day Designer School to those interested in house-wide integration design. The first Designer Boot Camp will take place at the CU On the Road Dallas Event, June 7-8 in Dallas, Texas, and the second will take place at CEDIA EXPO 2006, September 16-17 in Denver, Colorado.
The two-day courses will examine the challenges of designing your own residential integrated systems and explore how to design complex systems–structured cabling, multi-media, and music systems for convenience, and simplicity. Highlights include creating a cable specification plan and a programming specification, designing with block diagrams, and using floor plans in designing systems.
CEDIA’s new five-day Designer School will be held July 17-21 at Luzerne Community College in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. Attendees will utilize a state-of-the art computer lab to design residential systems with industry expert Todd B. Adams. A typical day will feature morning and afternoon lectures, with hands-on activities in the computer lab designing integration systems. Coursework includes structured cabling, home theater, music, lighting control, HVAC, and security integration. The CEDIA designer exam will be offered on the afternoon of the last day.
Both the school and the boot camp are recommended for installers, technicians, and recent college graduates with technology degrees. Materials include a comprehensive course workbook with objectives, text, review questions and activities, plus a CD with case study files.
