A KNX certified training centre is a training centre that has adopted the KNX Association’s Certification Scheme for KNX training centres. This KNX Certification Scheme ensures that all affiliated KNX training centres follow a minimum set of requirements as mentioned in the General requirements for KNX training centres.
A KNX certified training centre teaches how a KNX installation is properly configured and commissioned by means of the ETS software. Building owners, electrical engineers, architects, system integrators etc. who have successfully taken a KNX Basic course at one of these KNX certified training centres, have the right to be called 'KNX Partner', meaning that they have become a certified KNX installer. Such KNX Partners can put themselves as well as their company in the spotlight by appearing on the KNX website, which is visited by thousands of international visitors every month.

Introduction - Training measures
It is indispensable that a KNX installation is properly configured and commissioned by skillful personnel. KNX Association has therefore drawn up training measures to inform about:
- selection of bus devices and installation material;
- fields of application and main applications of the KNX bus system;
- selection of the bus topology in view of the construction of the building and the desired functionalities;
- planning of the to be installed bus system;
- installation, thereby considering the relevant regulations (e.g., lightning protection, electromagnetic compatibility, etc.);
- commissioning and servicing of KNX installations.
