The Electronic Security Association (ESA) is unveiling four new video CEU courses to its lineup of offerings. These courses are available now and will help students maintain certifications and licenses.

“Video installation and service jobs are one of the leading growth opportunities for ESA members,” said Michelle Yungblut, chief knowledge officer of ESA. “Providing more on demand training courses in the area of video systems has been a goal for ESA this year so we are excited to launch these new courses.”

ESA National Training School courses and CEU programs are designed to help electronic security and life safety professionals advance in easily accessible and robust ways. With a focus on real world training, skills learned can be immediately put to use in the workplace.

“The courses will provide technicians in-depth instructions on designing and troubleshooting their video projects, without taking up too much time away from the job sites,” Yungblut said.

ESA members have exclusive access to savings on all National Training School courses, including the four new video CEU courses.

Topics include mounting and housing choices, camera placement, camera features, lighting considerations and implications, customer goals for surveillance and more:

  • Auxiliary Equipment, System Design and Recording — This two hour course provides practical knowledge concerning additional equipment needs for mounting and housing video equipment. Learn the skills necessary to consult with a customer regarding their goals for a network video surveillance system. The course wraps us with info on recording device types, event and time-lapse recording features, and recording times in hours. This is an excellent course for those needing to hone their video installation expertise.
  • Camera and Lens Considerations — This one hour course will dive into specific and practical knowledge you will need to determine the appropriate camera and lenses for your surveillance projects. This is an excellent course for installers, service technicians, and salespeople.
  • Monitor Selection and Troubleshooting Analog & Digital — This one hour course provides installers, service technicians and salespeople with the knowledge and skills they need to install and discuss the different monitoring choices with their customers. It will also cover troubleshooting issues with analog/digital video systems and provide insight into corrective actions to take with issues seen on the monitor, simple problems with resolution and testing for proper termination.
  • Transmission Media — Video transmission is the means of getting the camera video signals from its scene location to a central VSS viewing and working area. The distance between these points can vary greatly, so the methods of transmission will vary. This one hour class will provide installers, service technicians and salespeople with the practical knowledge needed to address different transmission media, transmission media strength, limitations and applications.
