CEDIA hosted courses at ISE 2024


Tuesday 30 January – Friday 2 February | Location CC1

At the annual Smart Home Technology Conference, CEDIA is offering nearly 60 hours of courses, with subject matter experts delving into various areas, including technical installation and design, business excellence, and future trends, all within the context of home technology integration.

Here are a few ‘can’t miss’ courses

Artificial Intelligence, social media, and the rapid news cycle have proven valuable in quickly communicating information to the masses, but this “always on” mentality can be overwhelming.

CEDIA will be offering ISE attendees certification testing opportunities onsite. The Cabling and Infrastructure Technician (CIT) and Integrated Systems Technician (IST) certifications demonstrate to other trades, customers, and lawmakers that the home technology industry is a clearly defined profession with rigorous, widely accepted criteria for competency.
