Bosch Security Systems has invested a significant amount of money, time, and effort over the last year to bolster our training offerings for our customers. With new training centers, more in-depth classroom courses, and a greater range of eLearning offerings, we are helping to support and educate dealers and integrators as the market shifts toward greater adoption of IP security solutions.
This month, we opened a , increasing the number of Bosch training facilities to five nationwide. Upcoming courses at the Ontario center will focus on IP video cameras and encoders, video system design and storage management, and Bosch's Building Integration System. Additional training centers in the south and southeast regions of the U.S. are planned to open later this year.
The expanded classroom training portfolio places greater emphasis on IP systems. These comprehensive courses include product demonstrations, configurations, hardware installation, software overviews and troubleshooting tips. Upon completion of the courses, attendees will be able to perform complete end-to-end installations of Bosch's video over IP equipment.
In addition to classroom training, new self-paced, eLearning courses are available:
- Bosch's G Series Control Panels
- Divar MR Digital Video Recorders
- Extreme CCTV license plate capture and active-infrared technology
These courses can be completed in sections whenever it is most convenient for the participant. The online courses are designed to help technicians and sales personnel become familiar with Bosch technology without the expense of travel and time away from billable client activities.
"Security technology is evolving quickly with the continued development of IP solutions, and dealers and integrators must keep pace with these advancements to meet the demands of end users today," said Jim Musshafen, Director, Customer Solutions Support for Bosch Security Systems, Inc. "The expanded training program is designed to help our customers recommend, design, install, and support reliable security solutions. Their success is a critical factor in sustaining our leadership in the market, and we will continue to make investments in this area."
