Control4 Corporation has just rolled out a new Associate Installer online training program in order to certify entry-level technicians in automation installation, programming and design.

Control4’s network of independent authorised dealers can now leverage this free online Associate Installer Certification curriculum to train their employees on basic installation skills utilising mobile configuration and setup tool, Control4 Composer Express.

What Does The Program Cover?

Participants will learn how to install and configure one-room home entertainment systems, as well as assist in the provisioning of lighting devices in larger projects.

The new Associate Installer Certification comprises the following four classes: overview of solutions, infrastructure for home automation,
building basic entertainment solutions and controlling wireless lighting.

The program hopes to enable dealers of Control4 products to deploy staff to customers’ homes quickly so they can respond to the growing consumer demand in their local markets.

The Associate Installer Certification works entirely within Control4’s Composer Express App and can be completed in three hours.

“It’s easy for our dealers to get their employees started on the Control4 certified programmer track by having them register for this new training program for free through Control4 University and download the Control4 Composer Express mobile App today for free in Apple’s App Store, or the Google Play Android Store,” says a Control4 representative.

“Control4 dealers have made it clear that they want us to make it easier for them to develop their employees’ skills,” comments Ted Haeger, senior director of training and support at Control4.

“We designed this certification to help our dealers build a technician’s basic competency with Control4 products. Technicians can put their new skills to use immediately with real customer installation work. Dealers can evaluate their employees’ technical acumen in the field before opting to expand their training by sending them to Control4’s four-day course on whole-home automation programming. Control4 is listening, and we’re responding with tools and programs to increase our dealers’ efficiency and profitability.”

Meanwhile, the Control4 Live Stream event will take place on April 22 at 7pm ET (12am GMT).

The Live Stream will introduce the latest new products and solutions and will educate viewers on ways to live smarter.
