Milestone Systems launched a new Learning & Performance Program designed to build greater expertise in designing, installing, and configuring solutions that meet customer needs. Hosted on a new Milestone Learning Portal, partners and customers can access a growing library of free eLearning courses. In addition, Milestone also launched a redesigned Training and Certification Program as an integral part of the 2016 Channel Partner Program (CPP).

The new instructor-led training classes use real-world scenarios to give hands-on practice in designing, installing and configuring complex video surveillance systems based on Milestone software. The new certification assessments are available online, do not require attendance in a class, and are designed to better verify the knowledge and skill required to perform on the job.

Starting in March, the first new instructor-led class, Milestone Technical Configuration: Level 1, became available in English in the U.S. This three-day class is 90 percent hands-on practice using job aids to complete moderately complex installations based on real-world case study scenarios. It prepares learners to pass the new Milestone Certified Integration Technician (MCIT) assessment. A Level 2 class and a Milestone Certified Integration Engineer (MCIE) certification will also be available starting in May.
