The Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education has responded to the growing demand for skilled labour in the home technology industry. It has recently announced the new Smart Home Technician Apprenticeship standard aimed at people who are keen to install, configure and maintain a range of electrically connected digital home technologies.
Aneta Armova-Levin, CEDIA’s education manager, said: “We are delighted that our members have been able to work with the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education to develop this new standard. The standard gives young minds the chance to explore the world of integration and help find career paths within our industry.”
She continued: “Now that it has received approval and is ready for delivery, our plan is to raise awareness of this apprenticeship standard to education providers. Once there are apprenticeships based on the scheme on offer, integrator companies will be able to apply, and access the funding to employ one of these apprentices.”
The course will cover areas including data and IP networking, documentation; automation and control, cables and connectors for digital infrastructure, structured wiring and system verification and testing.
