The course is very good and easy to navigate. It’s nice to be able to take courses on the internet. I run an electrical company and my time is limited.

Harris.R from Gordon-Darby

This was a useful tool to gain a better understanding of the industry and preparation for utilizing CCTV.

Kbrieschke from InfoTech Inc.

The course was very informative. It gave me a good base for understanding both CCTV and Digital systems. It confirmed what I already knew and provided new information.


All the specs about CCTV components and theory are revised, and all the topics about new technologies that are overcoming digital and Networks are covered. Highly recommended.


I would recommend this as a starting point for information on CCTV or Digital Video. The information you give is very good and the course interaction is nice.

Elsa Yanez from Johnson Controls

Very complete information, well linked because it gives a full understanding of every topic. The audio is not very clear sometimes and it makes learning a little bit difficult for non-English speakers
