Mark Your Calendar: CEDIA’s Immersive Boot Camps Return in March

Jan 26, 2015

Basic-Boot-CampDo you consider yourself a visual learner? How about an auditory learner, or a kinesthetic learner?

Interestingly, some studies indicate it may not really matter. Which is to say, the effectiveness of any kind of instruction depends more on the subject matter than the supposed learning style of the student.

And what do you suppose is the best way to learn the subject of home technology installation? While reading books and listening to presentations are important components of any training program, there’s really no substitute for hands-on training.

If you or your colleagues are searching for a hands-on training opportunity this spring, set your sights on CEDIA’s popular Basic Boot Camp and Home Theater Boot Camp sessions, coming up in March at CEDIA’s Training Facility in Indianapolis.
