HD distribution and control solutions company Wyrestorm has begun a new, in-house installer training programme, designed to "ensure those installing Wyrestorm products not only have an innate knowledge of the entire range, but also a level confidence in the technology behind it." Its Intermediate courses are now underway and an Advanced level course will follow later this year.

Wryestorm has also told Inside CI that it is developing a series on online, web-based distance learning courses that will run in tandem, although these are still some way off as "the software is still being written."

Glen Harvey, Wyrestorm's training and specification manager, predicts the program will be of particular interest to those specialists moving across from largely analogue-based installation and distribution, such as aerial/satellite installers and traditional CI integrators. "Training is an investment that reaps rewards in improved skill sets, higher productivity and increased technical competency - all of which results in more cost-effective installations, greater client satisfaction and further business," he says.

The training sessions mix practical and theory, and include a combination of short lectures, Power Point demonstrations and exercises which cover residential and commercial settings, together with multiple-choice questions to test knowledge. 

The aim is to provide "a relaxed training environment that positively encourages questions and clarification by the delegates, ensuring they are neither intimidated by the subject matter nor the method of study." 

HD distribution training certification
The modular training course spans three specific skill/experience levels, allowing delegates to learn at a pace they are comfortable with "while also giving more experienced attendees the opportunity to choose the specific modules they want/need to study, with competence of skipped modules proved through testing or demonstration."  Regardless of ability, all attendees will each receive a training pack containing everything they need to progress through the modules.

Once each module is completed, attendees receive Wyrestorm certification. Those delegates who complete the full training programme are awarded an official 'Wyrestorm Video Integrator' certificate, and automatically becoming eligible to join the brand's Partnership Endorsement Programme, with their details included on a Wyrestorm Authorised Installer database on the company's website.

Course take place at Wyrestorm's Swindon headquarters, and at local venues through Wyrestorm's distribution partners Habitech and Invision UK.
