Fibaro Launches North American Installer Training Initiative

The certified system installer training is designed to provide practical knowledge of the design, configuration and implementation of the Fibaro smart home system.

CHICAGO — Fibaro is looking for more than a few good installation professionals. The global manufacturer of wireless intelligent home automation and control devices has built out “an aggressive” training program in a bid to grow its installer base in the United States, according to an announcement.

The company, which was recently acquired by the Nice Group, is enlisting skilled professionals — including residential and commercial A/V installers, electricians and practitioners within the construction industry —with the practical knowledge and expertise required to specify and install Fibaro systems.

The certified Fibaro system installer training can be completed in one day and has been designed to provide attendees with practical knowledge of the design, configuration and implementation of the Fibaro smart home system. The program opens with a “101 training” and progresses into hands-on instruction provided directly from Fibaro or by a specialized Fibaro Distributor.

“Fibaro’s installer training provided the perfect mix of product training and a detailed introduction to the smart home, as well as the Z-Wave platform,” says Justin Lee, a recently certified Fibaro installer from Ergo Structures of Toronto. “There are very few smart home platform manufacturers offering such detail-oriented training sessions; it was a great opportunity to not only learn about the products, but the broader smart home installation market as well.”

Completion of the program earns each participant an individualized certificate verifying the recipient as a Fibaro system expert and access to the Fibaro Academy portal. The portal supplies dedicated professionals with advanced instruction and video materials, as well as sales and technical support during the installation and design of the newly certified installer’s first customers.

Successful completion of the certified installation training is also the first step to becoming a Fibaro dealer and the ability to buy directly from one of Fibaro’s certified distributors.

The certified Fibaro system installer training is free and those interested in enrolling can do so here or by contacting a current Fibaro distributor for more details.

    Regarding your Z-Wave Fibaro article.
    Please put some editorial pressure on Z-Wave equipment manufacturers to build to the new Secure-2 architecture. It makes no sense to buy the current equipment when it probably is NOT going to be forwards compatible.

    Thanks, Gary
