Want expert video surveillance training? The goal of our new course is for you to become a world class expert in video surveillance. We leverage our unprecedented testing and research to give you the best education and training. The short video below overviews the program:

Our Approach

Our training will be structured like a college course rather than common self study certification tests. The course will be 10 weeks long, starting October 1st. We will hold class twice a week for one hour each plus there will be forums for discussion and weekly homework, concluding with a final design project. Students will be required to think through tough technology issues, explaining their positions throughout and interacting with the IPVM instructors. Because of that, you will come out of the course learning a lot. However, if you just want to study for a few days, go to a test center, and take an exam, then you should stick to traditional technology certifications.

UPDATE: Multiple Sessions for Each Class

To hold the number of people who want to attend, we will hold two sessions for each class:

  • one at 9am ET and the other at 5pm ET.
  • First Class - Tuesday at 5pm ET and then Wednesday at 9am ET (same content/topic) Second Class - Thursday at 5pm ET and then Friday at 9am ET (same content/topic)

This will give attendees multiple options as well as make it easier for European and Asian professionals. IPVM Certifications Students who pass will receive an IPVM Certification that they can use to promote their expertise. However, achieving the certification will be hard: Passing is 90%, unlike traditional certs where 70% is good enough. If you cannot get at least 90%, then you do not know the material well enough to really be an expert. Passing depends on participating productively in discussions, doing weekly homework and a final design project.

While you do not need to attend every session, you must stay current on all discussions, and assignments. Needless to say, it is going to take a lot of work. Budget 10 hours per week. We want people who have IPVM certifications to be top notch and do not want to sully our brand or your certification by giving it to just anyone. October's Advanced Video Surveillance Course Our first course, this October, will be on 'Advanced Video Surveillance', targeted to those who already know video surveillance fundamentals and want to enhance their expertise. System integrators, large end user managers and consultants will be the most likely to benefit from the course.

Pre-requisite: If you have any difficulty with our IP Video 101 training, this course will be too hard for you. Syllabus/Schedule: Here are the outline of 45 topics to be covered in the course

UPDATE: The course is SOLD OUT. Thank you!
