Connected Home Training

The RDI is pleased to announce the launch of its next online training module; ‘The Connected Home’ which is now available free of charge for installers to complete. ‘The Connected Home’ awareness module forms the foundation of a blended learning pathway which allows installers to increase their knowledge and technical ability in relevant Connected and Smart Home areas.  The pathway was designed after we received feedback from installers about their desire to move into the higher technology areas associated with Connected Home technologies but who did not have the basic knowledge to make this step.  The Connected Home awareness module which is ready now, is aimed at filling this knowledge gap by introducing the Connected Home concepts in a straightforward format and includes topics such as wired and wireless networking, signal and HDMI distribution, SMART television and emerging technologies such as Ultra HD television, telehealthcare and home automation. A practical, trainer delivered course follows on from this module which has been designed and delivered in partnership with RDI supporters Smart Home Projects to consolidate the knowledge learned and to give practical hands-on activities to up skill learners. The practical course will be delivered at a number of venues throughout the UK.  The topics included on the course start at a basic level with topics such as network connectivity and wireless technology and progress through to more challenging topics such as MAC addresses,  firewalls, security and troubleshooting.  The majority of the day includes many practical activities working within groups. Leading on from this, The RDI and Smart Home Projects will be working together to create a pathway of training of further educational courses to include; Security systems /CCTV/Intruder Alarms Indoor and Outdoor Lighting and Mood Lighting Electric Blinds HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) Control Multi-room Audio distribution Cinema room design and installation Designing AV systems for whole-home solutions Our industry has seen some very significant changes since 2000 and this is likely to continue with Connected Home technologies becoming the norm as we journey through this decade.  We strongly recommend that all installers embrace this journey and have the skills and knowledge to succeed; the Connected Home pathway should be considered as enabling members that require a step up, to get off the starting blocks and to start to better understand the technology now prevalent within our industry. Smart Home Projects and the RDI are running a pilot for the practical course at the end of the month. The pilot has been supported by LG, KnowHow, Humax and Samsung who are providing state of the art equipment for installers taking part. We'd like to thank these manufacturers for their continued support of the Institute and to the training and development of digital professionals.  To request the Connected Home online awareness module free of charge please email training@rdi-online.co.uk an online assessment is available to test your knowledge. Once successfully completed we will send you information on practical training courses running in your area.
