This is the second of three training classes available by Crestron. This training offers troubleshooting complex systems with multiple touch screens and serially controlled devices connected via RS-232 or TCP/IP. During the instruction, we learned new methodologies to make easily scalable programs.
The TesiraForte training class took three days at the Biamp headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon. The in-person training was more advanced than the online classes and went into much greater detail – especially on the logic. We had a homework project which took about five hours to complete. In addition, a one hour bonus assignment was added during the class.
