Publish date:

ROCKLEIGH, NJ--Crestron dedicates more resources to education programs than any other single company in the industry. Crestron develops curricula and volunteers certified instructors for InfoComm training, sponsors national CEDIA University courses and offers unparalleled education programs through its own Crestron Technical Institute (CTI). CTI is the most successful and highly respected professional training institution in the industry with more than 100 courses taught to thousands of students annually.

"Education is essential to the growth of our industry," says Randy Klein, Crestron executive vice president. "We have a responsibility to train our dealers so they can deliver the best solutions and the optimal experience for the client. When clients have a positive experience, it promotes confidence in our industry and drives demand for the solutions we provide."

In the first six months of 2008 CTI trained more students than in all of 2007 or 2006. Based on current class registration, CTI projects the total number of students to be approximately 5,000 for this year, representing a 25 percent increase over last year.

There are twelve CTI locations in the U.S., and Crestron has recently expanded its training facilities in Las Vegas, Denver and Ft. Lauderdale. New courses have also been introduced, such as Lighting Design and System Configuration. The new Configuration class has quickly become the most popular CTI class with enrollment of 1,257 since its introduction at the beginning of this year.

Crestron Certification classes, traditionally offered only at the Rockleigh headquarters facility, have recently expanded to other locations such as Atlanta, Dallas and Toronto, increasing the number of Crestron Certified Programmers. In fact, twenty percent more programmers have successfully completed the certification program over last year.
