    TCP/IP has become the dominant communications and media transmission protocol for the home technology industry. It is essential to understand both the theory and practice of IP in order to design and implement reliably. In addition, with wireless infrastructures being asked to handle ever more demanding applications, it is also critical that these are designed and implemented in a robust and reliable fashion.

    To meet these demands, CEDIA has created a whole suite of IP Networking courses to improve the understanding and skill set of attendees within the industry. The course will enable attendees to implement TCP/IP connected hardware in many of the situations encountered in the residential environment.

    Course registration grants you access to the Fundamentals of IT/Networking online course on CEDIA Academy - our newly developed online Learning Management System (LMS). This online platform is designed to reduce lengthy classroom time as well as allowing for course completion in an asynchronous, self-paced environment. The online module will be a pre-requisite for attending the in-person portion of ths training.
