Home automation trade body, CEDIA has created a new set of tools designed to help installers market their certifications to the public and the trade too.
Part of the new tool kit that the body has emailed to all certified members, is a new set of CEDIA Certification logos for all levels of certification including: CEDIA Electronic Systems Certified (ESC), CEDIA Certified Technician (ESC-T), CEDIA Certified Networking Specialist (ESC-N), and CEDIA Certified Designer (ESC-D).
CEDIA has also introduced access to digital badges through BadgeCert. Through this program, digital certification badges can be more easily added to email signatures, LinkedIn accounts, websites, and other SM platforms.
Clicking on a digital badge allows clients to verify the current status and expiration date of an individual certification and see what knowledge and skills it represents.
David Whitney, CEDIA certification manager, says: “CEDIA professionals work very hard to earn and maintain their certification and we have been looking for new ways to help them elevate this accomplishment.
“We are very excited to be able roll out both the new certification logos and the digital badging program right before CEDIA 2017.”
In addition to the new logos and the digital badge program, each CEDIA Certified professional has received marketing collateral that explains why a homeowner should hire a CEDIA Certified professional. Individuals interested in pursuing CEDIA certifications can find out more about each certification, the suggested course requirements, and the job task analysis by visiting the CEDIA website.
