CEDIA has opened a brand new education facility at its UK headquarters in St Neots, Cambridgeshire. Consisting of an education room, a practical workshop and a new breakout area, CEDIA will use this facility to provide technology integrators with the latest training in a welcoming environment.
The new education facility officially opened its doors on May 8, and is further proof of the organisation’s ongoing commitment to high quality training.
Last year, CEDIA hosted 72 courses, welcoming nearly 600 integrators to its training room. With its education continuing to increase in popularity, CEDIA decided to expand its facility to be able to accommodate the interest that its training courses are generating. Complete with a brand new training room, as well as a workshop with six work stations, the area provides more space for both theoretical and practical sessions. There is also a new breakout area, ideal for delegates to relax and network between sessions.
“Education is an essential step for those looking to enter and progress their skills in the home technology industry,” comments Matt Nimmons, managing director, CEDIA EMEA. “Our education programme continues to grow in popularity, so we felt that it was time to invest in a dedicated training facility. Since the facility opened at the beginning of May, it has been fully booked, with attendees enjoying the new space for various training sessions, including the four-day Technical School. We are delighted that the space has received a great reception from all who attended these sessions.”
Between June and December, CEDIA will be hosting just under 100 days of training at its new facility, with courses ranging from Project and Business Processes to Audio, Video and RF Systems for Installers and Design Process and Documentation to 3D Audio and Immersive Sound for Home Cinema.
As part of the wider benefits package for CEDIA members, the new training facility is also available for members to hire.
