Essentials and Intermediate levels are covered when it comes to residential and commercial product ranges, while a new two-day Crestron Foundation course has been developed to take dealers through aspects of production introductions, installation notes, tools of the trade and simple programming changes.
"We're delighted to be launching the new Foundation course - a great introduction to all things Crestron," Petra van Meeuwen, marketing manager of Crestron, told II. "The recent growth of our business across the AV integration and custom installation sectors has generated a real need for good, solid training courses that provide a comprehensive overview of the basics of control systems. With our expanded training capacity at our new Munro House headquarters (we have three dedicated training rooms) we can comfortably satisfy this need. And we've obviously touched a nerve because already bookings are flooding in."
In addition, Intermediate and Advanced courses have been added to the company's lighting training. Both take the form of one-day sessions intended to provide dealers with an insight into Crestron's lighting control products and the knowledge required to design, program and install lighting projects efficiently and reliably.
