TiO Turns Dealers into Skilled Ninjas with New Training Dojo

Multi-course progressive online training system designed to offer dealers education for selling and installing the intuitive automation ecosystem.

MELBOURNE, Fla. - Anuva Automation, the Florida-based manufacturer of TiO brand automation products, is announcing the launch of the TiO Ninja Dealer Training Program, a multi-course progressive online training system designed to offer dealers education for selling and installing the intuitive automation ecosystem.


Beginning with a simple thirty-minute TiO introduction that earns dealers their "white belt" in the Ninja program, the soon-to-be-released more advanced courses get into designing robust automated networks and exploring features in depth. The entire course contains multiple levels that include easy to follow training modules and certification tests to ensure comprehension. The aptly-named Dojo, where dealers earn their skill belts and become TiO Ninjas, is available at http://tiohome.com/learnmore/tio-training-the-dojo.

As users complete courses, they become eligible to earn t-shirts, belts and even free TiO products. Earning a yellow belt, which can be achieved by an integrator with no former knowledge of the system in just two hours of training, certifies them to install a full TiO system. The program culminates in the coveted TiO Ninja black belt, which will earn the holder national recognition at an annual awards dinner hosted by Anuva Automation.

"The countless dealers who have taken our live install demonstration and seen how easy it is can now train their teams and get comfortable with the selling points thanks to the TiO Pro Ninja program," said Mike Anderson, president of Anuva Automation. "We start everything with the end user in mind. Creating a training system that allows dealers to follow the same intuitive process for mastering the system that users have for easily creating lighting and entertainment experiences."

The training courses are administered through BlueVolt, an easy to use online dashboard created by Bedrock Learning, the leading training and support company for CEDIA and InfoComm channel integrators.

"The Bedrock team is excited to be a part of TiO's coming success," said Helen Heneveld, president of Bedrock Learning. "Their approach to automation is unique and refreshing from the typical programmed systems we've seen in the past."
