Rockleigh, NJ–In an ongoing effort to support its dealers and continuing education within the AV industry, Crestron has added new initiatives for its Crestron Technical Institute (CTI) certification training program. CTI is now offering its “Programming for Certification” course nationwide, making these valuable classes more conveniently accessible to dealers, and has also added new certification levels that recognize the high level of commitment by programmers who attend Masters Classes.
To meet the growing demand for the highest level of Crestron programming training, the CTI “Programming for Certification” course will expand nationally. Historically, offered only at the Crestron headquarters in New Jersey, this course, the third and highest level of programming training, now will be offered at all CTI locations including newly expanded facilities in Chicago, Illinois, Cypress, California, Dallas, Texas, and Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.
Beyond the “Programming for Certification” classes, Crestron offers its exclusive, specialized “Masters Classes”. CTI is introducing certification levels to recognize the commitment of Crestron programmers who attend these invitation-only classes. Masters Classes are an invaluable opportunity for programmers to train on the latest Crestron software and hardware and network and share knowledge with other programmers. Those who attend three annual Masters Classes receive a “Silver” designation. Attending three additional Masters Classes and then passing an exam elevates certification status to “Gold”. The highest level of certification, “Platinum,” is achieved after attending three more classes and passing one last exam.
“Being a Crestron certified programmer has always held the highest respect in the industry due to the rigorous training, extensive experience, and stringent testing required before achieving the “Crestron Certified” status,” said Randy Surovy, Crestron CTI Manager, Crestron. “These new certification levels denote our top programmers who are truly dedicated to staying up-to-date and fresh on the latest technology from Crestron and providing their customers with the best possible service.”
