Becomes CEDIA -Certified Instructor

DENVER, Sept. 3, 2008 -Mike Marko from the technical sales and design staff at Capitol Sales Company is the first in the Company to achieve status as a CEDIA certified instructor. This certification enables him to teach CEDIA University Core curriculum comprised of more than 140 courses in five industry -specific colleges. Markos, an employee at Capitol Sales since 2002, was one of a select number of instructors invited by the CEDIA Certified Instructor Action Team to participate in the certification course.
"This process is a critical step toward validating CEDIA University courses on the worldwide certification stage," said Jeff Gardner, Director of Technical Training at CEDIA. "By training and certifying our volunteer instructors, we ensure that our core curriculum is always delivered in an accurate and professional manner. As we update and fine -tune our courses, we must also make sure our instructors are the very best. We are always pleased to add someone of Mike's caliber to our team."
Markos joins 158 other instructors in successfully completing certification. One requirement to become a certified instructor was attending CEDIA's Train the Trainer program. That course includes a review of the adult learning process, managing the learning environment and effective, quantifiable content delivery techniques.
