Integrators and Tech Professionals Gain Hands-on Skills in New Instructor-led Milestone Solution Design Course

New training class provides the knowledge to design Milestone XProtect Advanced surveillance systems to meet security and business objectives


COPENHAGEN – August 22, 2017. 
Milestone Systems, the globally leading company in open platform IP video management software (VMS), has launched a new, instructor-led, hands-on, Solution Design training course for security professionals who have the direct responsibility to design complex Milestone surveillance systems. The course is also well suited for technical salespeople who want to better understand and position the Milestone Advanced platform to their customers. 

Based on the Milestone Design Process, the Solution Design training class is instructor-led. It presents relevant information and hands-on exercises to lead attendees through surveillance system design, focusing on the Milestone-specific video management components of the process.

"Our instructors guide attendees, step by step, as they work to gather information, define surveillance objectives, and specify products for an effective, real-world VMS solution," said Greg Willmarth, Director of Learning and Performance, Milestone Systems. "We discuss a range of topics that address common solutions, and our extensive, hands-on exercises are very valuable. Attendees leave the class with detailed, annotated notes to help transfer their knowledge to the field."

This 2-day training class consists of a series of presentations and projects that help attendees successfully design effective solutions for real-life scenarios. The course agenda includes:

    • Solution Design Course Introduction

    • Defining Surveillance Objectives

    • Determining Image Quality and Camera Selection

    • Identifying Roles and Design Workstations

    • Determining Key System Requirements

    • Choosing the Right Milestone Product

    • Specifying Network Topology

    • Developing Project Proposals

    • Defining System and Operator Behaviors

"Our key objective in redesigning the instructor-led classes earlier this year was to make them even better at preparing people to perform on the job," said Willmarth. "Our training workshops use a combination of real-world scenarios and hands-on exercises to build the knowledge and skills necessary to successfully design Milestone Advanced products to meet customer needs."

After completing the class, a certificate of completion is provided. This certificate can be submitted to Building Industry Consulting Service International (BICSI) for 13 Continuing Education Credits, and Continued Professional Development (CPD) will recognize this course for 13 CPD hours/points.

Attending the Milestone Solution Design class also helps prepare attendees to take the Milestone Certified Design Engineer (MCDE) online assessment. The MCDE fulfills requirements to advance in the Milestone Channel Partner Program.
