CEDIA Boot Camp comes to South Africa
Mon, 02 Oct 2017 17:47
CEDIA is offering a five-day training programme in Johannesburg from 16 – 20
THE PROGRAMME WILL INCLUDE:
Essential technical and professional skills for installers
Moving into smart home installation requires a wide range of knowledge. New
installation technicians need a strong grounding in both personal and technical
subjects. The course will provide attendees with the essential training in the typical
maths, science and electronics installers will have to utilise within the home
technology industry. Attendees will explore the key techniques for audio, video and
network calculations, and will also explain the electrical theory that is included. The
course will discuss on-site behaviours and best practices; subjects such as personal
conduct, attire, transportation and tools are explored in detail. Tools, techniques and
general site workings will be illustrated too.
Cables, connectivity and structured wiring workshop
The need for a proper cabling infrastructure is essential in any custom installation
project. Most homes provide little of the wiring needed for true system integration.
This workshop will show attendees the various cables and connectors used in
integrated residential systems, and demonstrate how to build a future-ready wiring
environment. Attendees will learn how to terminate, test and certify the wiring
This is an interactive workshop with practical exercises using a range of tools, test
and certification equipment, giving attendees the vital hands-on experience required
to advance their skill set and industry knowledge.
The course will prime attendees to the level required to pass the scientific elements of
the ESC-T certification exam.
Basic wired and wireless networking
IP networking is arguably the most important topic in the home technology industry.
This course provides an introduction to the Internet Protocol (IP), and it's place in
residential networks. This course is ideal for both beginners and individuals looking to
learn, formalise and increase their IP networking knowledge. This course is the vital
primer for those studying for the ESC-T certification exam.
Audio, video and RF systems for installers
For many installers, audio and video represent a large percentage of each project. RF
systems can be used to deliver a wide range of content into the home including
broadcast TV, satellite TV and radio. This course brings together these fascinating
topics to deliver the ideal grounding for installers of up-to-date home entertainment.
Audio and video
Aimed at new AV technicians and experienced installers from other electronic
industries, this session contains the vital technical information, basic design principles
and the installation practices required. Topics covered include design and installation
practices for highest fidelity, the basics of home cinema setup and calibration basics.
RF distribution offers a wide range of signal distribution possibilities covering radio and
TV, in both analogue and digital formats. Modern digital TV services mean a single
coax cable can offer more than 100 channels of entertainment, including HD
Many homes already have some coax installed, and this course explains, in detail,
how coax can be used to move signals around the home, how signals from various
sources can be combined and distributed around the home, and how installers can
ensure robust performance from a coax network.
Rack building and wiring fundamentals
Racks are now an integral element of many custom installations. Pre-planning and
standardisation can ensure every rack is given the time and attention required to
result in a tidy, and serviceable solution. This course will provide attendees with the
clear, structural methodology required for rack building from planning through to
future servicing. The course will explore the best practices, the importance of wiring
choices and standardisations which can be applied to projects of all sizes.
Attendees can expect to gain a deeper understanding of the different types of racks,
and how to apply the correct knowledge for overcoming issues with equipment
placement, wiring, connectivity and rack build as a whole.
