ESA, CEDIA Partner to Offer Discounted Training to Memberships

Members of both associations will have access training outside of their core business offerings at a 15% discount.

INDIANAPOLIS — The Electronic Security Association (ESA) and CEDIA are joining forces to expand the training and educational opportunities for members of both professional trade associations.

The new partnership will make available ESA’s electronic security and life safety and CEDIA’s A/V and home automation training programs to best serve the evolving skillset demands of the marketplace. Members of both associations will receive a 15% discount in the respective training programs.

CEDIA represents 3,700 member companies worldwide and serves more than 30,000 industry professionals that manufacture, design and integrate goods and services for the connected home. The organization provides access to industry-leading education, certification, research and consumer awareness.

ESA members will have access to the following CEDIA courses:

  • Cable and Connector Properties
  • Network Cabling Infrastructure
  • Wireless Network Technologies
  • Video Display Technologies for Technicians
  • Audio Technologies for Technicians

“We are excited to roll out this reciprocal training program,” says Merlin Guilbeau, ESA executive director and CEO. “The program allows us to offer education that expands from our core security and life safety expertise for those members interested in exploring AV, control and more within the connected home channel. CEDIA is an authority in this area and we look forward to working with the association and its members.”

CEDIA members will have access to the following ESA National Training School courses:

  • Certified Alarm Technician Level I
  • Advanced Intrusion Systems
  • Fire Alarm Installation Methods
  • Understanding Electronic Security Systems
  • Electronic Access Control
  • Video System Technologies

“There is a natural crossover in the work that CEDIA members and ESA members do, so providing both groups with the educational resources they need to be successful is a natural fit for both of our organizations,” says Dave Pedigo, CEDIA vice president of emerging technologies.
