Principles of Networking Workshop
A home network: the heartbeat of the home. As essential
as it is to maintain the health of the heart, so too is it essential to
understand and maintain the foundation of your client’s integrated system.
CEDIA understands how important proper setup and configuration is — for years we
have offered hands-on networking training to ensure that your business has the
necessary and proper tools.
During this two-day introduction to networking
boot camp you can look forward to classroom lectures, demonstrations and
hands-on lab exercises configuring a home network. This boot camp covers
networking cable infrastructure, critical foundational networking knowledge,
wireless networking implementation, and network security threats. This boot camp
is highly recommended before taking advanced networking courses.
