Crestron bolsters training with updates to facilities and courses

Crestron has updated its training courses and facilities in the UK and Dubai to bolster education for technicians, designers and engineers in EMEA.

The company has updated its DM Certification courses to include 4K training and its web-based DM Certified Designer – 4K: DMC-D-4K course, which provides an introduction to the design process, looks at the impact of HDCP and EDID on UHD resolutions as well as 1080p.

Its DM Certified Engineer – 4K: DMC-E-4K builds on the DMC-D-4K class with detailed product, connectivity, and cabling infrastructure knowledge. Crestron also provides remote learning for DMC-D and DMC-E certification holders to keep up to date via an online training academy.  

Crestron has also introduced a two day Fusion course with step-by-step guides and procedures for efficient programming. Challenges regarding different IT infrastructures are also covered and the course aims to teach delegates how to communicate with IT teams, perform SIMPL programming, schedule panel integration and set up a Windows Server to successfully install Crestron Fusion.

The company’s new training hub in Cobham, UK has programming pods, design interfaces and dummy racks. Training facilities have also been updated in the company’s Middle East headquarters and will soon be installed in Germany. 

The manufacturer also offers training at installer offices around the UK. The first was held at UK integrator AVM Impact’s HQ in Middlesex.

Jared Lancaster, CTO of AVM Impact, said: “To be informed on the expected challenges ahead when designing systems that take advantage of UHD resolutions will prove invaluable in the years to come.”
