Expanded Crestron Prodigy® Training Now Available

New Prodigy Training Program Delivers New Opportunities for AV Integrators

ROCKLEIGH, NJ - Crestron announced today the launch of its newly expanded Prodigy® training classes. The new Prodigy training program is now a three -day course designed to equip installers with the tools and knowledge to be successful right away. Day one is a review of the Prodigy product line and Prodigy Composer setup wizard. Days two and three are designed to increase an installer's value to their company and clients. Students will broaden and add specialized skills to their technology expertise by learning the diverse power and highest levels of Prodigy customization.


Prodigy is a simple, affordable home control system from Crestron. Introduced earlier this year, Prodigy quickly has become one of the company's most popular product lines. Prodigy is designed for simple configuration using the Prodigy Composer setup wizard , or more powerful customization using SystemBuilder™.

The course begins with Prodigy Composer and a complete overview of basic Prodigy product and software on day one. Students will gain a general proficiency in Prodigy system installation.

To take advantage of the power and flexibility of Prodigy control beyond the capabilities of Composer, days two and three explore configuring a Prodigy system using SystemBuilder. In this hands -on setting with instructor support, students will create programs for common system configurations including a home theater and whole house audio distribution, write user modules, customize global scenes and modify graphical layouts.

Students completing this course will have the knowledge, experience and credentials to bring a Prodigy system into a SystemBuilder environment to create unique system designs, custom automation and personalized graphical interfaces. Upon course conclusion, students will have created a fully functional project, demonstrating proficiency at programming custom Prodigy systems in SystemBuilder.

"Homeowners want and expect the most value and performance out of their home technology," says Crestron Director of Marketing, Vincent Bruno. "This training enables our dealers to deliver the highest quality solutions their clients demand and deserve."
