Vicon Industries announced that training and certification for its Valerus Video Management System is now available as a convenient online course. Following the same curriculum as Vicon’s popular in-person training program, the new online class provides in-depth instruction on all aspects of Valerus, from setup and programming to operational capabilities and special features. Coursework includes hands-on learning and exercises that make use of the actual Valerus software. In addition, participants are encouraged to connect to any standard ONVIF compliant camera to simulate the most realistic user experience. The new online, on-demand format allows participants to schedule classes at their convenience, log-in from a location of their choice and learn at their own pace.

The Valerus course is offered in two versions; both cover the same material. The Valerus Certification Course is recommended for installing dealers. It takes approximately 10-12 hours to complete, including required testing, and must be completed within 60 days after starting the session. The Valerus Basic Course does not include any exams, has no time limit for completion and does not confer “certified” status. The Basic course is intended for end users and others seeking a greater understanding of the Valerus platform. Unlike the Certification Course, there is no fee for the Basic version.

“Vicon’s commitment to customer training has always been model for the industry, and we are proud to offer the same level of quality in our new online Valerus Training Course,” said Bret McGowan, senior vice president of sales and marketing. “We believe that the most positive customer experiences begin with thorough training and a full appreciation of what our system can deliver.
