The event will offer more than two dozen courses for residential electronic systems professionals, each led by a CEDIA Certified Instructor. Courses will range from audio and video calibration techniques to installation to codes and standards.

In addition, two all -day workshops will be held. The first will be a Home Theater Design Workshop led by industry expert Anthony Grimani of Performance Media Industries, Ltd. on Fri., Feb. 2. Industry expert Sam Cavitt of Media Environment Design will conduct the second workshop, Practical Application of Home Theater Design, on Sat., Feb. 3.

CU On the Road is a program of CEDIA University, CEDIA's education department. The program, which will hold five events in the U.S. and Canada in 2007, is designed to deliver CEDIA education courses to more systems contractors than would be possible from a single location.
