Vicon Industries, Inc., designer and manufacturer of video surveillance and access control software, hardware and components, announced that training and certification for its VAX Access Control System is now available as a convenient online course. Following the same curriculum as Vicon’s popular in-person training program, the new online class provides in-depth instruction on all aspects of VAX, from setup and programming to operational capabilities and special features.

Coursework includes hands-on learning and exercises that make use of the actual VAX software. In addition, participants are encouraged to connect to any standard ONVIF compliant camera to simulate the most realistic user experience. The new, online, on-demand format allows participants to schedule classes at their convenience, log-in from a location of their choice and learn at their own pace. The VAX course is offered in two versions; both cover the same material. 

Recommended for installing dealers

The VAX Certification Course is recommended for installing dealers. It takes approximately 10-12 hours to complete, including required testing, and must be completed within 60 days after starting the session. The VAX Basic Course does not include any exams, has no time limit for completion and does not confer “certified” status. The Basic course is intended for end-users and others seeking a greater understanding of the VAX platform. Unlike the Certification Course, there is no fee for the Basic version.

“Vicon’s commitment to customer training has always been model for the industry, and we are proud to offer the same level of quality in our new online VAX Training Course. We believe that the most positive customer experiences begin with thorough training and a full appreciation of what our system can deliver,” said Bret McGowan, Senior V.P. of Sales and Marketing.
