CEDIA is offering prospective and current members free access to Grow with Google courses. Accessed via CEDIA Academy, which complement its established curriculum, Google’s courses explore topics such as the “Fundamentals of Online Marketing,” “Design Thinking for the Entrepreneur,” “Attract More Customers Online Using Digital Tools and the Black-Owned Business Attribute.” Ten topics were scheduled for release this month, and new topics will be posted at the beginning of each month following.

“Our industry is full of small business owners who share a passion for smart home technology and how technology can enhance homeowners’ lives,” said Giles Sutton, CEDIA Interim Co-CEO and SVP Member Success and Sales. “Yet to be successful and stand out from the crowd, integrators must develop more than just technical skills and become masters at business. That’s why we’re excited to partner with Grow with Google. We’ve supplemented CEDIA’s high-quality education with courses and content that equips integrators with the tools they need to level up their businesses and to help them go from strength to strength.”

Aisha Taylor, Community Engagement Lead for Grow with Google, added: ”We are excited to share Grow with Google’s free training resources to help small businesses and entrepreneurs in CEDIA’s network gain valuable digital skills and grow their businesses.”
