Principles of Networking Workshop - Long Beach

A home network: the heartbeat of the home. As essential as it is to maintain the health of the heart, so too is it essential to understand and maintain the foundation of your client’s integrated system. CEDIA understands how important proper setup and configuration is — for years we have offered hands-on networking training to ensure that your business has the necessary and proper tools.

During this two-day introduction to networking boot camp you can look forward to classroom lectures, demonstrations and hands-on lab exercises configuring a home network. This boot camp covers networking cable infrastructure, critical foundational networking knowledge, wireless networking implementation, and network security threats. This boot camp is highly recommended before taking advanced networking courses.
