Join CEDIA for a celebration! During the month of May, CEDIA, its membership, and industry supporters will celebrate CEDIA University's professional education and certification program.

CEDIA University's Certification Program, with nearly 5,000 active certified professionals, is dedicated to setting the highest standards in the residential custom electronic design and installation industry. From start to finish, CEDIA University's Certification Program involves quality-conscious technicians and designers in an effort to promote to users that companies with CEDIA-certified employees offer uncompromising quality and expertise.

Each certification exam is developed by CEDIA in conjunction with nationally recognized subject matter experts and under the guidance of professional test development specialists to ensure the validity and accuracy of both the content and test format.


Obtaining CEDIA Professional Certification can increase your company's quality, productivity, and profits. CEDIA certification helps electronic systems contractors and contractor companies achieve a competitive advantage by enabling them to gain the trust of their clients and industry colleagues. Professional certification creates a path for career-minded individuals who expect to reap the rewards from their efforts and expertise, and it helps companies establish clear standards by which to measure existing staff and new hires.

Manufacturers and consumers benefit from certification, too. CEDIA certification leads to proper installation and service of equipment by highly skilled and trained technicians. Manufacturers reap the benefit of reduced demand on their technical support department. And when consumers select a custom installation company staffed by CEDIA-certified professionals, they can trust that the installers working in their homes are trained, highly knowledgeable, and skilled professionals who will provide professional and courteous service and install equipment correctly for maximum performance.


CEDIA is offering several events this summer to help you ensure your employees obtain, and maintain, certification. Visit for available dates.
