Registration

Written by

Register for training using the Registration link next to the course you wish to take. You may register more than one person from the same company. Since certification training includes hands-on experience with OnSSI's software, the number of participants in each session is very limited. Because we generally reach capacity weeks before the training, we encourage you to register early to assure your participation. Participation is assured only once the listed contact person on the form receives a confirmation email. Certification is valid for two years from the date of the course for employees of Channel Partner companies.

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Written by

Do I need to be certified to purchase Ocularis PS?

Any dealer can purchase Ocularis PS but the Ocularis certification course is required for CS through ES feature sets. You will, however, benefit from taking the certification class if you are installing Ocularis PS.

Do I need to be certified to purchase Ocularis IS?

Like PS, any dealer can purchase Ocularis IS. Our certification courses are required for the CS through ES feature sets. You will, however, benefit from taking a certification class if you are installing and supporting Ocularis IS.

Why do I need to attend a full session when I was just certified recently?

You don't need to attend the Boot Camp session if your certification is within two years of the course date. A Recertification offering will be made available online by the end of Q1 for those alumni who were certified on July 2011 or later.

I just want to know how to add a camera. Do I need to go to training just to do this?

See the tutorials in the Video Center or log in to the CCP Portal and view various 'How-To' videos under the Useful Resources -> Videos link.

You can also access additional help by using the following links:

Troubleshooting: Easy-to-follow workflows on how to install and configure your video surveillance installation.
