Mike Backler, head of training at Crestron, explained: “The Crestron Training Programme is designed to equip integrators for the control system design and programming challenges facing commercial and residential A/V professionals everyday.

“We have three new courses for 2010 as our course curriculum has been expanded to better serve the needs of our dealers and programmers and we have also produced a Training Guide to outline which courses we run, where they are running and what delegates need to know in order to make the most of them.”

By successfully completing any of the relevant classes, delegates are eligible to receive the indicated number of educational credits. ICIA certified individuals will receive Renewal Units (RUs).
