Minneapolis, MN. USA (SEP 2011) - - Chief, an industry leader in AV mounting solutions, announces that its Certified Partner Program is now worth 10.5 CTS RUs from InfoComm.

With more than 1,700 active users, Chief’s Certified Partner Program helps dealers and installers stand out from the competition. Courses offered through the program help improve business results, differentiate business owners, and improve overall mount product knowledge. Each track is focused on a specific need and walks through scenarios in common applications.

Certification courses are also accredited by CEDIA for 5.25 CEUs as well as the all-new Digital Signage Experts Group (DSEG) for 2 learning units and the American Institute of Architects (AIA) for 1 credit. Along with free industry credits, those who complete Chief’s Certified Partner program also receive exclusive benefits, including access to a certified partner portal.
