Distech Controls Applications & Controllers Certification

5 days

Course Overview

This course has been developed to complete the Distech Controls Applications & Controllers Certification Program. This in-class training introduces and describes key concepts and knowledge about Distech Controls applications and controllers using the EC-NetAX software, and provides the hands-on opportunities needed to firmly establish the proficiency required in todays competitive marketplace. Features related to both LONWORKS-based (ECL) and BACnet-based (ECB and ECLYPSE) programmable controllers (including the recently released x50-series LCD-based controllers) are covered in an easy and convenient method to provide the needed requirements to complete the Certification Program with confidence.

As part of this course, the Certification Program also includes a pre-requisite e-Training presentation (email to be sent out 7-10 days prior to the class with instructions on downloading pre-requiste e-training) followed by a final examination that validates a working understanding of the key concepts and ensures Distech Controls Factory Certification. The pre-certification e-Training is available online on SmartTrack and must be completed prior to attending the classroom training.
