Industry Recognised Certifications

CIT Certification

This certification represents a technician whose primary task is to perform basic infrastructure wiring for low-voltage technology systems in a residential or commercial setting. Certified technicians are able to use proper tools and techniques, follow instructions per project documentation, and operate in a safe and professional manner on the jobsite. They understand the basic function of wiring and termination components being installed and are aware of common equipment and systems applications which they may assist with mounting and installing during later phases of a project. While these individuals typically work under supervision, this certification indicates to employers that they are jobsite ready, can work billable hours performing cabling and installation support, and have foundational knowledge to support additional training on equipment and technology systems.

CIT Certification

IST Certification

This certification represents a technician who can work independently to perform all functions related to the pre-wire (First Fix) and trim-out (Second Fix) phases of a project including troubleshooting common errors and verifying system functionality. Certified technicians follow best practices to properly mount and install a wide range of home technology equipment in racks and throughout a residence. They understand the basic concepts of how audio, video, and communication and control devices work, and perform the basic configuration of various integrated systems and equipment. This certification indicates to employers that a person has experience, possesses a broad range of essential technical skills, and is able to pursue more specialized and advanced training on specific technology systems.

IST Certification

Network Specialist Certification

Demonstrate mastery of design, installation, and configuration of the home network.

Virtually all technologies in the home are becoming part of the home network. If you think you’ve mastered the fundamentals of residential networking, including infrastructure, design, and configuration, then consider taking the CEDIA Electronic Systems Certified Networking Specialist (ESC-N) exam.

Electronic systems technicians who are prepared to take the ESC-N exam have experience with wireless home networking, including advanced networking techniques such as VLANS, QoS, and remote access.

ESC-N Certification

ESC-D Certification

Selecting products, creating schematics and drawings, forming budgets, and developing programming. These are just some of the everyday tasks of an electronic systems designer.

These individuals bridge the gap between the client and the installation professionals, focusing on the overall system design and project completion.

Electronic systems designers who are ready to take the CEDIA Electronic Systems Certified Designer exam should be well-versed in design documentation, project design, needs analysis, and design management. Most electronic systems designers who sit for the exam have a minimum of five years of experience.
