Education schedule for the much anticipated event being held on 31 January - 2 February 2012 at the RAI, Amsterdam.

Main partners of ISE (Integrated Systems Europe), CEDIA (the Custom Electronic Design and Installation Association) has announced its education schedule for the much anticipated event being held on 31 January - 2 February 2012 at the RAI, Amsterdam. Europe's trade association for the residential custom installation industry will once again be providing a range of training and education opportunities with many sessions new to an ISE audience.

In total, CEDIA will be offering 14 courses, doubling the number of sessions given at ISE 2011. The programme includes seven brand new courses including, "Choosing and Using Control Systems", "Embracing the Cloud", "The Art of Project Documentation", "Practical Media Delivery over IP Technologies", "Developing Profitable Business Processes", "Delivering 3D" and "Introduction to HVAC systems".

After its successful debut in 2011, another major highlight of ISE will see the running of CEDIA EST2 Certification in English, French and Spanish. CEDIA education offers a structured Certification programme, allowing integrators to meet examination standards at four industry recognised levels and describe themselves as a CEDIA Certified Professional. EST2 (electronic systems technician) is the baseline technical certification for the industry. Currently, CEDIA members in the UK and Ireland must employ at least one CEDIA Certified professional as a condition of membership.

All courses in the programme are led by expert presenters from within the industry, with the vast majority of sessions lasting either three hours or one and a half hours.

"We continually strive to provide a high quality education programme with plenty of opportunities for people at all levels and disciplines within the industry", says Matt Dodd, CEDIA's Chair of Education. "Training is a vital part of CEDIA's commitment to the industry, and it's especially important for CI businesses to stay on top of new trends, technologies and best practice in our sector".

Delegates wishing to book a place on the CEDIA Education programme at ISE 2012 can do so via the ISE website at www.iseurope.org. To take advantage of Early Bird discounts please book before 4th January 2012. Education is offered to CEDIA members at a discounted rate.
