You trust and use IPVM for reporting and research and you can also have your team trained by our experts.

One of the most common requests our support team gets is how members can get their co-workers or employees trained. This explains how and why.

Great For New And Junior Employees

Your new and junior employees may not have an IPVM membership and a lot of our reporting may be too advanced for them. However, our courses are a great way for them to learn the fundamentals guided by our teachers in live classes where they answer their questions and help them succeed.

The top feedback we get from course attendees is that the courses enable them to understand and communicate with senior industry people on key technical areas. Indeed, a number of companies have standardized using IPVM courses for new employees.

Relevant Courses

IPVM offers a variety of courses and here is where they have the most benefit:

  • Video Surveillance 101 - the perfect course for employees without experience in video surveillance to quickly learn the basics across the board.
  • IP Networking - For sales, management, support and others without a computing background that wants to understand how IP networks impact and are used in video surveillance.
  • Access Control - The best course for access control companies or those coming from the video surveillance side who want to rigorously understand electronic access control.
  • Camera - For those with video surveillance experience who want to understand surveillance cameras deeper and increase their expertise.
  • Installation - The only course of its kind, for managers that want to improve their company's installs or installers that want to improve their skills.

Attending Courses Requires Memberships

While attending courses require an IPVM membership, there are a number of ways to obtain this:

  • Invite your co-worker to a free membership month and then just pay $20 per month for as long as you want them to have access (a course takes 3 months to finish).
  • Upgrade to a group (or larger) membership, save up to 50% per member versus the personal rate.
  • Sign up 3 or more co-workers for courses and we will give each course attendee 3 months free to take the course. Just email and they will get this set up for you.

Get Updates Weekly on Your Team's Progress

Every Monday morning, you will receive an email with your team's progress including what quizzes they have taken, what scores they receive, how they are participating and more. That way, you will know how they are doing. Below is an example of the email you will receive:

When you sign up team members that are part of your group, you automatically get those weekly emails. If the team member signs up individually, just email and we will manually set up the weekly progress report.

Custom Invoices and Payments Provided

Often companies need custom invoices or different payment options and we can easily accommodate that. Just email and tell them what you need.

Private Courses Possible

Private courses just for your team members are possible. We still recommend that the course sessions be done over the course of 4 to 6 weeks to allow attendees time to study the material. If you want to set up private courses, just email

Passing Is An Achievement

IPVM Image

Industry courses typically result in rubber stamp certifications that make it hard to know if the employee really has learned. IPVM courses are different. They are in-depth and require studying to pass. We routinely fail students who demonstrate they do not know the material. This way, you can be more confident that your employees are being educated and can better contribute to your team.
