FAIRPORT, N.Y. — Bosch Security Systems has invested more than $500,000 during the past year to bolster its training offerings for customers. With new training centers, more in-depth classroom courses and a greater range of eLearning offerings, Bosch is helping to support and educate dealers and integrators as the market shifts toward greater adoption of IP security solutions.
The company recently opened a training center in Ontario, Calif., increasing the number of Bosch training facilities to five nationwide. Upcoming courses at the Ontario center will focus on IP video cameras and encoders and on Bosch’s G Series control panel. Additional training centers in the South and Southeast regions of the United States are planned to open later this year.
The courses include product demonstrations, configurations, hardware installation, software overviews and troubleshooting tips. Self-paced, eLearning courses are also available on the G Series control panels, Divar MR DVRs, as well as on Extreme CCTV license plate capture and active-infrared technology.
“Security technology is evolving quickly with the continued development of IP solutions, and dealers and integrators must keep pace with these advancements to meet the demands of end users today,” says Jim Musshafen, director, customer solutions support for Bosch. “The expanded training program is designed to help our customers recommend, design, install and support reliable security solutions. Their success is a critical factor in sustaining our leadership in the market, and we will continue to make investments in this area.”
