Harrisburg, PA–The Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA) and D&H Distributing will work together to promote the certification of technicians in the home integration market.
As a first step in this new relationship, D&H Distributing has joined the CompTIA Home Technology Integrator (HTI+) certification advisory committee, a group of manufacturers, retailers, educators and courseware developers responsible for setting the direction of the HTI+ certification.
Additionally, D&H Distributing will provide its dealers with training tips and information on courseware and training organizations as well as with vouchers for the certification exams at a reduced cost.
“As the leading distributor in the digital convergence market, we are seeing a significant pattern of increased cross-category purchasing behavior among our computer resellers,” said D&H Distributing vice president of marketing, Dan Schwab. “We continually develop new programs and tools that help our dealers succeed. Our principal reasons for joining the CompTIA HTI+ certification committee are to be closely involved in the skills development process and to be able to offer a verified tool that helps our resellers migrate into the home integration market.”
The HTI+ certification exams cover designing, implementing, and maintaining home networks, which can include everything from computers to televisions, audio systems, security systems, lighting systems, telecommunications and heating, ventilating and air conditioning.
