Reinventing the SYSTIMAX Installer Training Program

James Donovan_new James Donovan April 18, 2018

2018_CIA_Systimax_Online_Course_360x203For the past decade, the way we conducted our hands-on SYSTIMAX installer training has changed very little. During that time, we’ve had the honor of awarding more than 13,000 installation and maintenance certificates. As technology improves and more people search for online training, we at the CommScope Infrastructure Academy are looking to make some improvements to this course.

For many years, much of our training has been delivered online, but because of the nature of the Installer training course, this remained classroom-based, bucking the trend of the online revolution. This is about to change.

CLICK TO TWEET: The SYSTIMAX Installation and Maintenance course from the Infrastructure Academy is now available online. Read James Donovan's blog for more details.

Starting the week of April 16th, the all-new online SP3361 SYSTIMAX Installation and Maintenance course will be available; however, this is an online course with a difference.

In creating a new online infrastructure and maintenance course, we want to deliver a rich, interactive and example-led course that provides a similar experience to a hands-on class. We are proud of what we have achieved and hope you agree.

Here’s what to expect with the new online course:

  • Fully up-to-date with latest SYSTIMAX solutions: This new course covers all the latest products for the SYSTIMAX solutions, including the High Speed Migration products and ceiling connector assembly, plus tools like the Fluke Networks integration for fiber loss measurement. In addition, installation of the SL range of CommScope Connectors have been added to ready students for other CommScope solutions.

  • An engaging experience: We included quizzes, interactions and games that the student will enjoy. These will come in many different forms, but all are designed to help explain topics and ensure understanding.

  • Gamification: We designed this course so that completing it isn’t just about passing an exam. You will gain credits that count toward your course goals. This course is passed through participation, but also students are encouraged to attain Bronze, Silver or Gold medals, which can be shown off with pride.

  • A modern look and feel: It wasn’t long ago that we updated how our courses look. Based on feedback we received, we have made some further improvements to our course page. We even updated the training player, providing students with a better overall experience.

  • Included in the CommScope Passport scheme: This course will be readily available to companies who have full CommScope passports. Alternatively, it will be available for purchase individually, as will the other existing SYSTIMAX Installation courses:
