Camera Course Summer 2017

Author: Brian Rhodes, Published on Jul 13, 2017

Learn video surveillance and get certified.

IPVM provides live online classes, recorded videos, personal help, cutting edge education and certification.

We have substantially rewritten the course and training materials for 2017 to reflect new developments in resolution, H.265, HD analog, image quality, video analytics and camera cost.

What the IPVM Camera Course Covers

In 12 sessions, we cover surveillance cameras extensively, using our industry leading 2017 Surveillance Camera Book and custom class presentations.

Who Should and Should NOT Take this Course

Even if you have lots of hands on experience with surveillance cameras and manufacturer training, you should take this course. It teaches cameras at much greater depth than what regular field work or product specific training provides.

However, if you have no experience with surveillance cameras, you should not take this course unless you can commit to spending 10 to 15 hours per week studying. We have had many people take this course without experience and do very well, but only if they dedicate sufficient time to studying. You cannot pass this course simply by reading a few hours the night before the exam.

Course Calendar

The Camera course will meet live online, starting July 18th for 12 times over 6 weeks (Tuesday and Thursday for 1 hour from 1pm - 2pm ET (17:00 - 18:00 UTC).
