Become a Registered Outreach Instructor (ROI)
CEDIA’s Registered Outreach Instructor (ROI) program enables CEDIA members to provide continuing education to their local design and build industry partners. CEDIA members who take and pass the ROI “Train the Trainer” class can present CEDIA-developed courseware to industry partners within their geographic regions. This grassroots member benefit will impact the member’s ability to develop new business relationships without the cost of course development or submission for approval through industry partner associations.
CEDIA Registered Outreach Instructor, Kurt Korfhage of Integration Unlimited, praises the ROI program as “one of the best tools that a CEDIA member can invest in to educate their partners while gaining their trust and their business. It raises the level of respect we get as an industry because they will realize that we are genuine, knowledgeable resources."
As an ROI you will receive:
The opportunity to author articles in leading CEDIA and industry partner publications
ROI marketing tools
Advertisement via print publications, the CEDIA web site, and Eblasts to industry partners
Consideration to present at regional speaking events
- Special promotions on ROI and CEDIA merchandise
CEDIA member companies can request an ROI "Train the Trainer" course to be taught at their business. To take advantage, companies must:
- Assemble a minimum of eight individuals for the eight-hour course
- Provide appropriate meeting space and necessary audio visual equipment
- Make food and beverage arrangements
CEDIA will do the rest! This is a great opportunity to train all of your staff at one time and save money on employee travel expenses.
*Location details and registration links for these events will be added soon.
