A product packed with features is only as useful as the person operating it, and training is equally important as product for any user. With this in mind, QSC is excited to announce the launch of its new online training platform, a site offering several new features to help improve end user experience and make learning simpler for the company’s award-winning training programs. Increasing their international focus, the launch coincides with the release of Q-SYS™ Level 1 Training in German and French, adding to the existing English, Spanish and Mandarin versions. The platform also provides training on the QSC TouchMix digital mixers as well as several other of its loudspeaker and amplifier lines. Best of all, all QSC online training content is open to the public and free-of-charge.
New User Profiles and Updated Assessments
The new QSC online training platform features new user profiles, allowing customers to easily track progress through courses, submit final designs for certification, access prior certificates and offers an easy way to recertify (when certification expires). The site also includes improved training assessments, which make working through courses even more manageable.
Video Transcript Search
The training platform is now equipped with a powerful video transcript search that searches dialogue within each video (upon launch, search includes all Q-SYS Level 1 English videos, with more transcripts from other training videos coming online in the coming weeks). Rather than spending time scrubbing through videos, users can jump directly to a specific topic within a video based on keyword searches.
“QSC is committed to providing world-class product education and thought leadership to our industry in ways that are useful, enjoyable and technologically accessible. For example, Q-SYS training program has become a benchmark for our Systems business with thousands of people trained and certified last year alone,” said Patrick Heyn, Director of Marketing for QSC Systems. “We are very excited to offer videos in more languages and bring online QSC training to an even broader global audience.”
Q-SYS Level 1 Training presents the fundamentals of the Q-SYS Platform with step-by-step instruction from experienced QSC educators on how to program an entire installation and troubleshoot audio, video and network related issues that might arise. Real-world examples guide the student through basic system design, preset creation, POTS/VoIP-based conferencing, soft codec video applications, third-party integration, control, video camera setup and more. Students can take Level 1 training online or in-person.
QSC also offers Q-SYS Level 2 Training, a two-day, hands-on course that dives deeper into advanced application-based Q-SYS curriculum. Each student works on a full Q-SYS workstation with the latest Q-SYS hardware and software.
QSC TouchMix Training
QSC TouchMix Training is comprised of a series of short videos covering the most commonly used features in the TouchMix including mixer navigation, using TouchMix Wizards, preset channels, mixer scenes, wireless operation, multi-track recording and more. After watching the TouchMix Series videos the user will have the knowledge to use the TouchMix to create a great mix easily and quickly.
