The Milestone Solution Design class uses a combination of online tools and cloud labs to help you learn how to design a Milestone XProtect® VMS to specifications. During the class, you will play the role of a solution designer for a Video Management Solution (VMS) integration company called Techsmart.

This class provides attendees with the knowledge and skills to design Milestone XProtect VMS surveillance systems that effectively support customers’ surveillance objectives. This class is designed to empower our partners to use Milestone design resources to consistently meet their customers’ needs and exceed their expectations.

A professional facilitator guides attendees and provides topical expertise as well as Milestone best practices.
