The National Training School (NTS) announced its 2006 course offerings for Internet protocol (IP) networking training classes for the electronic security industry. Through an agreement with the Security Networking Institute, NTS has trained more than 400 people since the end of 2004 when the IP networking courses were first announced.

Founded by the National Burglar & Fire Alarm Association (NBFAA), Irving, Texas, in 1985, NTS has trained nearly 30,000 people in the electronic life safety and security industry and offers a portfolio of courses that range from classroom and online to partner programs.

The Security Networking Institute training utilizes instructor-led classes, hands-on equipment demonstrations, and real-world applications. The class teaches technicians and salespeople how to program and connect digital video recorders, network cameras, and other security equipment to networks and the Internet.

Security dealers may attend one of the many regional NTS or NBFAA chartered state association sponsored classes scheduled throughout the United States. Private company classes are also available in a two-day format. The IP networking classes provide 1.6 NTS continuing education units.

In further news, NTS announced it is offering classes in Georgia, Nevada and Oklahoma in order to expand training opportunities for security professionals in those areas.
