US Expert To Train Local CE Integrators

CEDIA Asia Pacific has scheduled three separate weeks of training in home electronic integrated systems in the spring.
The first week-long workshop on Design will be held in Perth March 31-April 4; the second week of Design will be held in Sydney April 7-11 and the third week on Project Management will be held in Sydney April 14-18. These workshops will be presented by DIpartner, a US-based company headed by industry expert Todd B. Adams.
In the Design workshop, Adams will focus on designing home integration systems – structured cabling, whole-house audio/video, home theater, lighting, HVAC, and security. Whether working for one of the specialised firms that install and service only one or two home technologies (home theater, for example), or for a broad-based systems integrator that supplies total integration solutions, the knowledge in this course, confirmed by the CEDIA certification, will assure multiple career opportunities in an expanding technological field.

In the Project Management workshop, he will explain key elements in managing home integration projects efficiently and effectively from the project manager’s viewpoint. Adams acts as an innovative guide to establishing a solid foundation for understanding project management as it relates to the dynamic and highly complex custom installation and systems integration field.
From operations turnover to document review and the final project schedule, this course covers the management of residential integration projects in basic steps. Topics include project life cycle, work breakdown structure, project scope, project cost, project time and scheduling, and building PM systems.
Adams is the author of Residential Integrator’s Certification and Residential Integrator’s Project Management, the texts used in the workshops.

A 15-year veteran of the industry, Adams has taught numerous seminars and workshops in the UK, Canada, and the US. CEDIA US named him one of its top 10 instructors at the CEDIA US Expo 2007. He is recognized as a CEDIA SME (subject matter expert) in residential integration.  He founded DIpartner in 2002 to provide quality education for residential integrators. The company provides books, computer-based training and workshops on design, business and project management.

The dates for the workshops are:
Monday 31 March – Friday 4 April 08 Design School – Perth, Australia
