The move follows a huge increase in demand from new dealers adopting AMX technology, as well as from existing installers taking on new staff to resource their own growth in AMX systems.
The opening of the new facility coincides with the launch of an all-new AMX training course: 'Networking for AV Professionals'. The course has been set up to satisfy a specific requirement from professionals for a tailored training package that will help integrators to understand, configure and diagnose computer networks, especially in relation to AMX products, and enable them to provide remote access via the internet.
The new training centre is fully equipped with the latest AMX hardware and design software and offers courses for up to eight people. The first courses to be run at the new training facility are three-day 'Entry Level Control Systems' courses aimed at new dealers to AMX and new employees of existing dealers.
Timothy Penn, managing director AMX UK (pictured right), explains: "Entry-level training is where we currently have the greatest demand and this new training facility provides us with the capacity to get more installers up to speed, much more quickly. Once the first installers graduate from the course, we expect a further increase in demand for the more specialist courses we run, such as the new networking course."
Other courses currently offered by AMX include two advanced programming modules, 'Programmer II' and 'Programmer III', GUI (graphical user interface) design, and implementing AMX's Resource Management Suite.
