Silver, Gold, and Platinum Master Programmer Certification Levels

A Crestron certified programmer holds the highest respect in the industry, due to the rigorous training, extensive experience, and stringent testing required before achieving "Crestron Certified" status. In order to help Crestron certified programmers stay up-to-date, each year CTI offers exclusive and specialized "Masters Classes" that are invitation-only to Crestron certified programmers.

Masters Classes are an invaluable opportunity for programmers to train on the latest Crestron software and hardware, while networking and sharing knowledge with other programmers.

Those who attend three annual Masters Classes receive a "Silver" designation. Attending three additional Masters Classes and then passing an exam elevates certification status to "Gold". The highest level, "Platinum," is achieved by attending three additional classes and successfully passing one last exam. These new certification levels denote our top programmers who are exceptionally dedicated to staying current with the latest technology from Crestron and providing the best possible service to their customers.

What if I have taken retired courses?
If you have taken classes on the previous programming certification track, here is how you complete your certification:

If you have completed Intro to Crestron Programming - your next step is to take CTI-P101 Foundations of Crestron Programming

If you have completed Essentials of Crestron Programming - your next step is to watch the Crestron Studio online tutorial videos and then take CTI-P201 Crestron Core Systems Programming.

If you have completed Intermediate Crestron Programming - your next step is CTI-P301 Advanced Crestron Programming Skills.

If you have completed Programming for Certification and submit your exam - you do not have to take the new courses.

And once you have completed the Certification Exam, you will be a Crestron Certified Programmer
