Extron Certification Overview

In today’s ever-changing business environment, it is essential to keep pace with advances in complex technologies and products. Education and certification can help accomplish this goal, as well as provide an objective way to measure performance for a given job at a defined skill level. Like a professional license, certification instills confidence through reliable evidence of a critical set of knowledge and skills. Acquired fluency and expertise in any field saves valuable time and money, and ensures a higher level of customer service and satisfaction.

Certification Process

Begin by choosing the certification track you wish to pursue and familiarizing yourself with the roadmap for that track. Courses for each track may comprise a combination of online and instruction-led courses, as well as a proctored exam depending on the certification. The online portions can be taken on any Internet-enabled PC (Extron's E-training is currently not available for Macintosh® operating systems). Proctored exams are currently conducted at Extron's world-class training facilities and during Extron Institutes on the road.
