“Adoption of IP-based systems is growing rapidly — creating increased demand for training, said Jim Musshafen, director of sales operations. “With hands-on classroom style courses in locations around the country as well as elearning options, our training is very accessible. Many of our courses also provide continuing education units to help our customers maintain licensing requirements.”
We currently offer 24 online training courses, which can be taken in modules, on demand whenever it is most convenient. Topics range from general network basics to product certification. With this diverse elearning offering, we enable you to advance your knowledge and expertise without the expense of travel or time away from billable client activities. Thirteen of these courses offer continuing education units.

At seven training facilities spread throughout the U.S., we also offer 16 in-depth classroom courses — delivered multiple times throughout the year. Covering various topics on video surveillance, access control, intrusion detection, public address, radio dispatch and other communications equipment, classes focus on the installation, programming and troubleshooting of systems. Each course gives you the information you need to design, install, and maintain dependable security and communications systems from Bosch.

We also offers a variety of brief video tutorials with product overview information as well as details on installation and programming.

“Bosch has adopted a blended learning approach — delivering online training and technical videos in addition to classroom courses — as a result of the extensive feedback we’ve gathered from customers, said Sheree Usiatynski, training manager and technical support project manager, Bosch Security Systems, Inc. “We will produce even more videos and online training in 2013 as we continue to focus on expanding our support offerings.”
