Congratulations to Pure AV system specialist Colin Hasted, who has achieved Platinum status as a Crestron Certified Programmer. He is now one of only three accreditation holders in the UK, ten worldwide, and truly at the top of his game.

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 Masters’ status.

The manufacturer established the Crestron Masters in response to the rapid rate of change in their technology. The intent to set and maintain the highest standards of knowledge and expertise within the integrator channel. 

Each level - Silver, Gold, Platinum and Diamond, has a minimum level of training and requires completion of an exam.  By the time you reach the Platinum level, you will have accumulated a minimum of nine years’ experience programming Crestron solutions. The final exam is a significant undertaking, requiring up to three months to complete.

As a Platinum Certified Programmer, Colin has demonstrated commitment to an in-depth understanding of the Crestron solutions and the ability to master advanced system design to deliver the best possible customer experience. His final exam praised by the examiner as a well planned and executed submission and recognised for additional work on user interface and logo design.

Crestron emphasises that the Masters’ certification levels denote, “top programmers who are exceptionally dedicated to staying current with the latest technology from Crestron and providing the best possible service to their customers”.
