Enhanced training options available to systems integrators from Atlona

In an effort to continue expanding and improving training options for AV specialists, Atlona has launched its updated Atlona Academy certification programme for systems integrators and resellers.

Available now through the Atlona Training Portal, the new Certified Atlona Advantage Partner (CAAP) programme combines self-paced, online modules on foundational AV concepts and Atlona products with two days of hands-on learning and remote, instructor-led product training.

Covering both residential and commercial AV, the programme begins with five learning modules: 100-level Foundational AV, 200-level Circuit-Based Solutions, 300-level Velocity Control Training, 400-level Networking for AV, and 500-level OmniStream Setup and Configuration courses.

The Velocity Control Training module includes hands-on work using Atlona’s Velocity software on the learner’s own computer, with lab assignments evaluated by an instructor.

After completing the self-paced modules, students will then enrol in hands-on product training and receive a kit of key Atlona products, followed by spending up to two days in a live, remote, hands-on training session with an Atlona instructor to master their AV and product-specific skills.

“Remote learning became essential last year as the pandemic unfolded, but also has long-term advantages for our channel partners even once in-person training is back in full swing,” said Ken Eagle, senior director of global training at Atlona. “Employees’ time is precious, and remote training lets learners set their own pace rather than committing to several days at our facility. The self-paced portion of the CAAP programme also lets us organise the curriculum into bite-sized learning activities that can be completed in pieces, even during evenings and weekends.”

Successfully completing the CAAP programme earns students AVIXA Certified Technology Specialist (CTS) continuing credits. Certified dealers and integrators qualify for a variety of Atlona sales and marketing benefits, and on the way to earning their CAAP certification can also gain authorisation to purchase, resell, and install key product lines.
