What Is a CEDIA Registered Outreach Instructor?
Registered Outreach Instructors (ROIs) are CEDIA members who have attended and passed the “Train the Trainer” course with a peer-evaluated presentation session. Successful completion of these requirements enables participants to deliver CEDIA-developed industry partner education.
The “Train the Trainer” program gives CEDIA members the tools they need to deliver quality presentations and enables them to present relevant and timely education to industry partners within their geographic regions. Since the program’s inception in 2006, it has grown to include hundreds of ROIs throughout the U.S., Canada, and Latin America.
In order to maintain this CEDIA designation, ROIs are required to follow strict guidelines that include timely submission of participant attendance for reporting to industry partner associations, meeting firm deadlines for registering upcoming classes, maintaining minimum evaluation ratings, conducting a minimum number of classes per calendar year, and/or participating in skills refresher courses which are offered face-to-face and online. The ROI program has been deemed one of CEDIA’s most valuable member benefits and continues to grow with every “Train the Trainer” session.
CEDIA is an approved provider of continuing education for the following groups:
- American Institute of Architects (AIA)
- Architectural Institute of British Columbia (AIBC)
