Essential Info

If you're outfitting your home with the latest and greatest of home automation gear, you'll need to know exactly how everything works and communicates together, especially if you're using a variety of wireless communication and operating standards such as INSTEON, Z-Wave, ZigBee, and X10 in the same household. While all these communication protocols are great in their own right, they are not always compatible with each other unless you have specific communication accessories such as a key fob or universal main controller that can convert an INSTEON signal into a Z-Wave signal to control an appliance, and vice versa. So rather than blindly purchasing wireless devices that don't work together, or the way you want them to work, step it up and dive into how wireless device connectivity works in your home, and get training so you can begin setting up your wireless network with Bedrock Learning's BL-oc-NETWK Home Networking Online Training Course.

This online course delivers a comprehensive and detailed overview of computer networking, specifically focusing on making your personal home network the foundation of computer sharing and Internet access and connectivity between technology subsystems. The course also reviews wiring, components, network devices, cabling, TCP/IP concepts, and IP addressing. You will also learn correct programming, testing, installation procedures, router configurations, operating system set up and network security practices to make sure your network is up-to-date. This course is divided into 15 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.
