QSC launches new online training platform24 May 2017
QSC has announced the launch of its new online training platform. This site offers several new features to help improve the end-user experience and make learning simpler for the company’s training programs.
The launch coincides with the release of Q-SYS Level 1 Training in German and French, adding to the existing English, Spanish, and Mandarin versions. The platform also provides training on the QSC TouchMix digital mixers as well as several of its other loudspeaker and amplifier lines. All QSC online training content is open to the public and free of charge.
The online training platform features new user profiles, allowing customers to track progress through courses, submit final designs for certification, access prior certificates, and offers an easy way to recertify (when certification expires). The site also includes improved training assessments, which make working through courses more manageable.
The platform is now equipped with a video transcript search that scans dialogue within each video (upon launch, search includes all Q-SYS Level 1 English videos, with more transcripts from other training videos coming online in the coming weeks). Rather than spending time scrubbing through videos, users can jump directly to a specific topic within a video based on keyword searches.
“QSC is committed to providing world-class product education and thought leadership to our industry in ways that are useful, enjoyable, and technologically accessible,” said Patrick Heyn, director of marketing for QSC Systems. “For example, Q-SYS training program has become a benchmark for our systems business with thousands of people trained and certified last year alone. We are very excited to offer videos in more languages and bring online QSC training to an even broader global audience.”
