Atlona Expands Award-Winning Training Programme for AV Systems Integrators

USA – Atlona continues to ramp up its Atlona Academy training and certification programme, adding new, higher level courses for systems integrators seeking to sharpen its AV over IP expertise. The targeted education initiative will allow participants to earn valuable AVIXA Renewal Units (RUS) and CEDIA Continuing Education Credits (CEUs).

Earlier this year, and to meet growing demand for targeted, certified training with continuing education credits, Atlona updated its suite of accredited online courses, revising and streamlining its 100 and 200 level programmes offered through the Atlona Education Portal. These initial programmes provide up-to-date instruction and information for the design, configuration and use of Atlona’s complete suite of AV over IP products and solutions. Atlona also added new accredited courses for its Velocity™ IP-based control AV control platform.

Now, in addition to the core 100 and 200 level classes, Atlona has expanded the educational resource with three new online certification courses:

  • 300 Level – Velocity Control Certification Training

  • 400 Level – Networking for A/V

  • 500 Level – OmniStream Setup and Configuration

Atlona has also enhanced its Hands-On Factory Training Courses to include three advanced level training curriculum programs:

  • Advanced 100 and 200 Level – Circuit Based Solutions

  • Advanced 300 Level – Velocity Control System Course

  • Advanced 400 and 500 Levels – Networking for AV, OmniStream Setup and Configuration Course

Both 300 and 400 Level Courses are now live at the Atlona Academy Education Portal and 500 Level Courses will be available online beginning 1 July.

Atlona will also offer “Advanced Hands-On Factory Training” courses that will be held monthly at its corporate headquarters in San Jose beginning July 16, and repeated monthly. Atlona partners outside of the Americas will receive the same trainings at international headquarters in Zurich, Switzerland. Refer to the calendar for current dates, locations and online registrations.

“Now AV professionals have a clear path and end-to-end process to design, roll-out and integrate AV over IP systems, as well as handle set-up, management and control of the underlying IP network,” said Ken Eagle, senior director of global training, Atlona. “By making use of the Atlona Academy Education Portal and the integrator-specific dashboard, they can further advance their knowledge not only of specific products, but on AV networking and design. We want to help them to be successful on the job site – on their first attempts – in setting up advanced, networked AV solutions.”

The Atlona Education Portal is one of many training resources Atlona offers. Atlona’s overarching goals are to teach established and aspiring AV industry professionals how to maximise the company’s industry-leading AV and control solutions, as well as the broader array of AV over IP technologies on the market today. Atlona also offers a video on demand Education Video Library and periodic webinars.

For those seeking more personalized training and hands-on product experience, Atlona will offer ten Atlona AV Factory Training events in 2019, including six to be held at its San Jose headquarters. Internationally, Atlona will offer four multi-lingual events at its Zurich facility in English, French, or German.

The newly revised course materials, as well as quizzes and tests, have been approved for AVIXA and CEDIA certifications and credits. These credentials, which are awarded upon completion of a course or program, signify the qualifications achieved by AV professionals, and are especially valuable to those seeking to advance within the industry.
