Indianapolis, Ind. - The Custom Electronic Design and Installation Association (CEDIA) announced today that the Canadian version of the Designer Certification will be available for the first time in Canada at the 2004 Canadian Exposition from June 27 -28. The Exposition will be held at the Coast Plaza Hotel and Conference Centre in Calgary, Alberta.

In addition to Designer Certification, professionals will have the opportunity to take Installer I and Installer II certification examinations during the Canadian Exposition. These programs are also tailored specifically for the Canadian marketplace and cover guidelines and regulations for the low -voltage residential electronics industry, including building codes, CEC, Health Canada, Communications Canada and TIA Communications Standards.

The Designer and Installer certification programs are part of CEDIA's Professional Certification (CPC) program and enhance the skills and knowledge of professionals in the field of custom electronics design and installation.

"Our market share in Canada continues to grow and our ability to offer certification opportunities for our Canadian members is increasing in importance."
