Russound Launches Online Education Program

Newmarket, NH -- Russound has launched the first part of an advanced, online education program designed to provide installers with thorough multi-room audio/video technical training. Russound's Training Education and Certification (TEC) Department offers training seminars on-site and off-site, as well as at numerous tradeshows yearly. With Russound's online learning, industry professionals can now learn at their leisure, anywhere they have computer access.

The education program will be promoted on Russound's website and through course registration CDs available at Russound distributors. The initial curriculum consists of three courses featuring an overview of the Russound RNET 2-way communication technology and will focus on specific products utilizing the technology, such as Russound's flagship controller/amplifier CAV6.6, SMS3 Media Server and ST2 Smart Dual Tuners. Each course delivers information concerning system design, installation, setup and operation.

"Proper setup and programming can cut installation time, enhance clients' experiences with whole house audio systems and boost dealers' profits," said Russound TEC specialist, Matt DiPasquale. "Education gives the installer an important edge in the face of increasing technological advancements and competition."

Eventually, those who pass a monitored exam will become Russound RNET Certified, meaning they have the expertise to install and program Russound's most advanced systems. Future topics will include sales techniques, automation integration, consumer-oriented system operating tips and more.
