Welcome Marty Major to IPVM

By John Honovich, Published Sep 08, 2014, 12:00am EDT

I am happy to announce that Marty Major [link no longer available] has joined IPVM full time to lead IPVM's training courses.

Marty's mission will be to deliver the very best education to security professionals. He will expand and improve upon the foundation we have built in IPVM's first 2 years of training, providing more personal interaction, direct help, and according to him, improved humor.

As those of you who have seen Marty's comments on IPVM over the years have learned, Marty is passionate about the surveillance industry, supporting customers and helping people to learn. We are excited that he can use that enthusiasm for all of you.

In addition, Marty will be reaching out to members to see how IPVM can better help them and hosting more IPVM events, both online and in person. First up, on September 22nd, he is leading a New Member Orientation webinar.

Marty joins us following 3+ years as a Trainer for VMS manufacturer, OnSSI.

Please welcome Marty to IPVM.

Is it true that the training courses are going to be re-worked to have a bovine theme?

The Cow is no more....

"Dead but dreaming" is probably the most accurate description.

Congratulations, Marty!

What a great add for IPVM! Nice to see. Congrats, Marty!

Congrats Marty!!

Congrats!

Congrats on joining a great team Marty!

It's true, this place could use a sense of humor. This place reminds me of the first third of Back to School. I'm just worried that Marty could turn this place into the last third of Back to School. Try to shoot for the middle third, which I think is really the sweet spot.

I was thinking Animal House myself. I don't want to see the initiation.

Marty is a true 'OG' in surveillance. He was one of the first people I ever talked with about a new type of 'IP Camera' that uses software recorders rather than DVRs. That must have been six or seven years ago, back when he was doing his remote support gig.

He doesn't admit it, but he's been in this game longer than most of us have been out of diapers. He doesn't hold back sharing his experience with novices either, and is a seasoned trainer. That is great for IPVM!

Welcome Marty! PS: The new guy buys us lunch and brings us popsicles.

Fantastic news! Congrats Marty!

I-95 just got a little safer...

Congrats Marty! I always enjoyed my OnSSI classes with you, looking forward to seeing what's next.

Great news to hear! Congrats Marty!

Will your thoughts be pasteurised? Congratulations Marty, you are making your mark in our industry.

Congratulations!

Great news for the community!

Congratulations Marty!

Thanks everyone - I appreciate the good words! I am extremely excited about joining IPVM full time to lead training at IPVM University. So much so, I've even changed my face-shot pic on Twitter to the IPVM University logo - for which I've received many thanks from my followers there.

Many years ago, I stumbled across IPVM (then ipvideomarket.info) when I was searching for knowledge on IP cameras - as this 'new' platform was starting to muscle it's way into my old analog world and I knew my IP kung fu was weak. And I am glad I did. Without the knowledge I've gleaned from John and his team at IPVM over the years (including all the really smart members), I never would've been able to even be a technical trainer like I've been for the past 3+ years at OnSSI.

So I'm back to return the favor by doing everything I can to help other members get the same value out of IPVM (and specifically IPVM University) that has helped me to achieve my own personal and professional goals.

A circle of knowledge. :)

Marty - Congratulations on a great move! Every year I see the value of IPVM increasing, and this is another great step forward!

Marty, you are numbero uno in the helpful biz! Thank for shovving me the ropes when I started membership on-site and I was measlier than most, I am sure. but now you are a lifeguard, like Brian!
