In an effort to make its education courses more accessible and encourage members to regularly book training, CEDIA has introduced a new ‘Voucher Scheme’. This development provides discounted rates and supports the new education format which was announced earlier this year.
“We believe that the new voucher scheme will have an impact on our members,” says Matt Dodd, Director of CEDIA Education Region 1. “In the fast-paced industry that we are in, it is imperative for industry professionals to understand and grow with market trends and to be educated in all aspects of CI to achieve the highest quality installations. The scheme has been developed specifically to help manage cash flow within businesses; we hope all of our members will make the most of this exciting offer.”
CEDIA recently announced a new modular approach to education, splitting all of the core disciplines into one-day courses, including popular technician/installer courses such as Residential Networking, design courses including the Home Cinema Design Workshop and business courses such as Let’s Make Money! The voucher scheme supports this new education format. CEDIA members can purchase vouchers which are worth the cost of a one-day course. Should members wish to sit a certification exam such as EST2, ESD1 or Residential Networking Specialist; this can be redeemed at the value of two vouchers.
One voucher is priced at £169 + VAT with the cost reducing with the more vouchers purchased. Three vouchers can be bought at £159 + VAT, five vouchers at £149 + VAT, ten vouchers for £129 + VAT and 25 at just £99 + VAT.
These block vouchers are available to CEDIA member companies. The rate for a one-day course for non-members is £219 + VAT. To support the launch of the voucher scheme, CEDIA is offering all members one voucher in credit, worth £169 + VAT.
