Milestone Technical Configuration Level 1

This three-day training workshop is designed to develop participant ability to install and configure moderately complex XProtect VMS installations.

The workshop consists of a series of hands-on exercises where learners practice configuring the XProtect Corporate VMS to specifications from realistic scenarios. Step-by-step instructions and a professional facilitator guide the learners as they configure systems according to sample specifications.

A final project allows learners to practice and demonstrate their skills in a more independent environment, but with continued support from the facilitator.

Participants leave with a detailed sequential checklist and annotated notes to help transfer their knowledge to the field.
