Habitech has announced four new training courses, covering everything from cyber security to cinema design.

The distributor’s new one-day ProNet Cybersecurity course, is designed to help network engineers of all abilities understand and counter the growing threat to data privacy posed by cyber criminals.

When CI businesses and their customers are exposed to new risks every day, this course seeks to explain the techniques used by hackers to gain control over devices and networks, as well as the actions integrators must deploy in order to block attacks and their destructive impact and lives and livelihoods, it says.

The course serves as an introduction to the WatchGuard product line, explaining how its protection layers operate and how to specify and size an appliance according to customers’ needs. Delegates will also receive hands-on training about deployment in any consumer or business network, regardless of ISP provision. Earns three CEDIA training points. The course will run throughout the year and is free-of-charge.


"A foundational workshop for those new to home cinema or wanting to refresh their knowledge about AV basics..."


Habitech also intends to give custom installers ‘a thorough grounding’ in home cinema design. Its Essentials of Home Cinema one-day course is a foundational workshop for those new to home cinema or wanting to refresh their knowledge about audio-video basics and design best practice. All aspects of system specification are covered, including room design and layout, speaker configuration, projection and lenses; screen type, materials and aspect ratios; amplification and processing; bass management, basic audio/video calibration and the simple dos and don’ts of home cinema planning. The course Fee is £99.00(plus VAT), and earns three CEDIA training points.

The other two course on the roster are Dirac Live! and Advanced Wisdom.

Explaining the benefits and application of EQ, the Dirac Live! course dedicates an entire day to advanced hands-on calibration with Dirac Live EQ, which is now available on the latest ARCAM AVRs and processors.

The course is free-of-charge course, and open to those who have completed Habitech’s ARCAM product training. It covers level alignment, time alignment, mixed-phase room correction technology, impulse response correction, target response curves, sub and main speaker crossover, verifying the results with REW, and room calibration. Attendees earn three CEDIA training points.

Finally Advanced Wisdom training is a new adjunct to its established Wisdom Audio Product Training course, and offers high-level expertise in speaker specification (by calculating SPL levels and dispersion characteristics); the design applications of point source and line source speakers; bi-amplification, crossovers and PEQ; speaker installation best practice; subwoofer choice, placement and number; the REW (Room EQ Wizard) room simulator for bass frequencies; Wisdom SC-2 and SC-3 system controllers (for cinema and multi-zone); Dirac tips and tricks.

The course is free-of-charge and open to integrators who have completed the Wisdom Audio Product Training course.
These new courses join as many as ten further workshops in Habitech’s 2020 training programme. Full details of Habitech’s 2020 training calendar are available here
