Melville, N.Y. - ADI is teaming up with the Electronic Security Association (ESA, formerly NBFAA) to launch new training classes to help dealers grow their businesses and uncover new revenue opportunities.
These educational courses kicked off last month, and will be offered exclusively at ADI locations across the country to train dealers on the latest technology and help them expand into new markets, ADI said.
The classes include the Troubleshooting, Service & Maintenance Fundamentals Course (TSM) and Video System Technologies Course. Delivered by ESA's National Training School, the two-day workshops are designed to help dealers learn ways to uncover new revenue opportunities on each installation, and find new profit centers for their businesses.
The Troubleshooting, Service & Maintenance Fundamentals Course focuses on effective service and repair of systems and will provide dealers with detailed training on testing, inspection and preventative maintenance. Attendees will learn to troubleshoot and maintain intrusion, fire, video surveillance and access control systems.
Beginning in early 2010, the Video System Technologies Course is designed to help dealers increase their sales in CCTV and video technology. The course will outline the proper selection and design of video systems, and address the various application considerations when installing, servicing and repairing these solutions. Attendees will learn about traditional methods and equipment, as well as progressive and emerging technologies including digital cameras, NVRs, fiber-optic cable and power over Ethernet.
