ZeeVee, Inc has announced that it has been named an official InfoComm International Renewal Unit (RU) Provider, allowing more than 9,000 professionals holding InfoComm International’s Certified Technology Specialist credentials to earn renewal units towards their certification by completing certain ZeeVee education programs.
To obtain approval, RU programs must feature experienced instructors with clear evidence of qualifications in the session topic. Each class must contain at least one relevant learning objective or industry-related purpose; relate to a specific exam topic area and exam level and conclude with an assessment tool to demonstrate participants have grasped the objectives. These criteria are reviewed by InfoComm University’s Certification Renewal Unit Committee.
The following program can be completed for 2.5 RUs: ZyPer AV over IP Training: Designed to help educate system integrators and AV installers on the new technologies available to enable IP-based media distribution solutions.
The course covers the basics of IP as an introductory phase – covering topics such as the 7-Layer OSI reference model, IP addressing and switching technologies. The course then provides hands-on training with the ZyPer4K system. Attendees physically interact with the equipment to install, configure, and deploy a fully functional IP video distribution system.
“We are very pleased to have our ZyPer AV over IP Training course recognized by InfoComm International RU,” says Bob Michaels, CEO, ZeeVee. “ZeeVee set out to create an innovative and stimulating AV over IP training program to continue our efforts in driving industry education and adoption of standard IP technologies. Attendees leave our training with a greater understanding and benefits of distributing video over an IP network.
“ZeeVee has shown a commitment to bettering the audiovisual industry through the delivery of quality training that supports accreditation,” added David Labuskes, CTS, RCDD, executive director and CEO, InfoComm International. “By fostering professional development, ZeeVee has demonstrated its leadership and strong support of the industry.”
The ZyPer AV over IP training courses are held monthly at the ZeeVee office in the UK at Missenden Abbey, Bucks, and will soon be rolled out in the US in late Q1, 2017. All training courses are designed around active participant interaction and tactile, hands-on learning.
