CRESTRON OFFERS ONLINE TRAINING

Crestron Training Institute offers online courses

ROCKLEIGH, NJ, February 3, 2005 - Crestron has launched an exciting new training initiative that will bring Crestron Technical Institute (CTI) to your desktop. This new program will allow more dealers to participate in Crestron's popular "Residential Systems Design" and "Commercial Systems Design" courses, with more classes added throughout the year. Participating in CTI Online lowers financial and opportunity costs for the dealer and reduces down time out of the office.


CTI Online provides the convenience of attending classes at times that accommodate the dealer's rather than the manufacturer's schedule. Managers can plan exactly when it is most convenient for programmers to take classes instead of having to plan around course schedules. CTI Online allows dealers to attend class, review course materials and take the test for certification from their own desk whenever they want.

Crestron believes that quality training benefits everyone and is committed to providing the best education programs in the industry. "Training programs tend to solidify relationships and open lines of communication between our company and our dealers," states Jon Ottesen, Director of Technical Sales Southern Region at Crestron. "By strengthening the skill sets of integrators, they are able to sustain and grow their businesses. As the integrators grow, the industry grows."
