I am interested in a career in home cinema istallations, but I have no idea of where to start to get involved in this.
If there is anyone on here who designs and/or builds home cinemas as a living, I would be very grateful if you could give me some infomation on how you got where you are.
Or if there is anyone who knows any websites or places where I can get info on this, please let me know.

Hi, isn't there an installation federation somewhere in the UK, i think iv'e seen there name on some installers adverts in mags like home cinema choice. i would get a list of there members and contact the local member to you.
I intalled my 9 foot screen, projector, 90 meters of Bi wire cable and av hardware myself, and enjoyed every miniute of it.
Might help, good luck.

They do training courses even if your not a Cedia member but they cost more.
I am not a cedia member but install multi room and home cinema systems .I have been in this business since 1988 .I started working as a sales person then worked upto manager (10 years of hard graft and learning).got involved due to demand in to proper installs.left worked for a high end hifi av dealer left there and worked as an installer for a Bose dealer couldnt live with myself and left :o~:-o~:eek: .worked for a projector and plasma supplier for schools ,conferences,board rooms etc saw how bad some of these installs were and set up my own company.
all of the above just happened i didnt plan my career .I dont advertise all my business is through recommendations.
Ideally i would have worked for a big cedia member who is willing to pay good money on training.I have had to beg for training from most of the employers i worked for. If you find one stay loyal .
