Note: In our process of continually improving and refreshing our content to reflect the fast-moving world of AV, Networking Technology Online is currently being improved with a launch date of late 2023. This version of the course may have some errors that the new version will fix, but we have decided to retain this content because even in it's current state, it fills a gap in many people's understanding of Networking necessary for the current state of Professional AV.
If you're looking for something immediately that is more up to date, consider enrolling in AVoIP Foundations, which can be found from the Training Catalog.
