In its continuous efforts to invest in training Crestron has hosted its first ever
Training Conference last week bringing together trainers from across the EMEA
region. During the two day conference discussions were held aimed at exploring
training requirements, key processes and online registrations and how to improve
training style and opportunities across the region.

The event provided the opportunity to announce the promotion of Tom Wright to
EMEA CSP Manager. Tom, who has worked at Crestron for nine years, will continue
to manage the UK training operation, teaching the higher level courses, and being
involved in the Crestron curriculum development team. In addition he will be
managing the certification program; assisting new applicants through their path to
certification and maintaining contact with the EMEA CSP community.

The programme also saw key representatives from the US visit to speak about new
product developments and the relevant training courses required in the run up to
ISE 2017 and Crestron Masters 2017. “This was a unique opportunity to bring
together all of our key representatives for a focused debate on the importance of
training to our organisation’ said Rich Sasson, Global Director of Technical Services
Crestron. “It emphasises just how much of a driving force our training is and it was
particularly important to understand the different requirements of the EMEA region
as well as giving our team here an early insight into the new training courses
coming in 2017’.

Neil Walton, Training Manager at Crestron EMEA, said; “It has been a fantastic few
days of discussion, debate and development which highlights our dedication to
offering our dealers and CSP’s the very best training possible. I am personally
delighted Tom has taken on this new role and I know he will work well with our CSP
