Essential Info

If you crave the latest and greatest gear and are constantly thinking about your next home upgrade and can't resist tinkering, then home theater is in your blood. You've probably felt an irresistible urge to monopolize the remote, ready to tweak the sound or picture at any moment, only to be chastised and reprimanded once the credits begin to roll. This causes panic and glaringly bright images, lopsided sound, flabby bass-things that make you cringe. So step it up and dive into what makes a home theater system tick, or just get some training so you can roll up your sleeves and finally tackle that project you've been kicking around forever with Bedrock Learning's BL-oc-THEAT Home Theater Design and Installation Online Training Course.

This course delivers an interactive and thorough foundation in many aspects of home theater projects with detailed step-by-step design and installation procedures, and video and audio calibrations for maximum performance. The online course is perfect for beginners, amateur, or expert designers and installers who want to learn or brush up on essential concepts such analog versus digital signals, aspect ratios, video formats, video reproduction, audio reproduction, power conditioning, source components, processing equipment, displays, and speakers. The course isn't boring either as informative texts, detailed color diagrams, and engaging case studies related to home theater make learning truly efficient and enjoyable. This course is divided into 12 sections with each section ending with a quiz, and a comprehensive test at the very end to demonstrate and test your knowledge. This 8 hour long course is designed to be taken at whatever pace you find comfortable, and upon completion you are awarded a Course Completion Certificate and earn up to 4 CEDIA CEUs (Continuing Education Units), 0.8 ESA CEUs, 80 ETA Contact Hours, and 8 infoComm International RUs.
