Who Should and Should NOT Take this Course

If you are looking for instruction on how to design and specify cameras and networking equipment, you should not take this course. The better classes for you are our Camera course and IP Networking courses.

This video installation course is for those want to learn the basics of installer work with limited prior training on video surveillance cameras and equipment, and limited experience with networks.

Course Instructor

The course will be lead by John Scanlan from IPVM. In addition to heading up several training IPVM Imagecourses, John is an integral contributor to video coverage and testing. Before coming to IPVM, John worked as a FE for several retailers & banks, owned a small business dealing communications equipment to hedge funds, and before that was a regional IT Manager.

John will lead each session, with others from IPVM moderating questions and providing feedback on related IPVM research and testing.

Course Calendar

The Camera Installation course will meet live online, starting October 13th for 12 times over 6 weeks (Tuesday and Thursday) at 5pm ET - 6pm ET.
