A new course launched by Just ETOs Ltd has brought certified audio-visual systems training to ETOs. The Yacht Entertainment Systems (YES!) course is a three day event run near Amsterdam and managed by Scott Molloy and Sjoerd Appelboom. The course serves as an overview of the most commonly encountered system components including Crestron, all integrated in a specially adapted media demonstration room.
Scott Molloy, Just ETOs’ Managing Director, explains ‘AV system skills are a crucial and unique requirement in the yachting sector. Yet these skills are constantly in very short supply. Gaining AV skills and certification is a smart move.’
The first day of the course is Crestron’s CTI-Tech course, a workshop which aims to give the attendees the knowledge required to install and service a Crestron system. Covering the basics of communication through to firmware and program uploads, this course is targeted at engineers who need key Crestron technical skills, without programming knowledge.
On completion of this hands-on class, attendees will gain the Crestron Technician Certification, and have the skills and confidence to successfully install and maintain a Crestron system.
Neil Walton, Training Manager at Crestron EMEA, said; ‘Like many of our installers, ETOs require technical knowledge of Crestron without necessarily needing programming skills. This course is a vital addition to our portfolio and part of our continued focus on training development’.
