EDUCATION

The use of Ethernet based products is growing constantly in the AV industry, no matter the sector, hence why it is important for any AV technician to grow their skill when it comes to device networking.

This is why Goosera has created the AVNT (AudioVisual Network Technician) certification program, a unique and innovative way to learn at your own pace!
The program is divided in 5 modules, each module including 5 days of course. 
From level 1 to 5, the student will get educated with a field proven and easy to understand methodology,  and a perfectly balanced theory/practice ratio.
All along the week, student will get challenged with online assesments, and hands-on exercices.  
At the end of each module, student will need to pass a final exam. If the student get its module completed, he’ll be eligible for the next level. 


Don’t want to become an expert? You simply want to feel more confortable in your daily job when using Ethernet based devices, and understand what you’re doing? No worries, this program is meant for you!
The program is designed in a way it offers what you really need to learn all along your career, depending on your availabilities and your needs.

AVNT II

Network fundamentals and backbone

During the Level I course, you’ve learned everything related to audio or lighting control end-points. In this module, you’ll learn how to create a converged and redundant network, to interconnect all these devices, seamlessly. But before this, you’ll learn all the fundamental aspects of an Ethernet communication! Power is nothing without control!

THEORY

To feel confident in front of a converged network, you’ll need to learn how an Ethernet network works. Come and discover our unique method to explain how an Ethernet packet travel inside the network.

METHODOLOGY

Thanks to your new friends, the TCP/IP and OSI models, you’ll learn how to set a converged AV network from layer 1 to 7. This will offer you the best possible methodology to troubleshoot a network if required.

SETUP YOUR OWN RACK

The best way to understand how devices are interconnected in an AV network, is to do it yourself!
Come and discover the Gooserack, the education rack not found anywhere else, to learn how to build a rack, to select and connect fiber components and test them, and much more!

AVNT III

Protocols and IT Switches

Now that you feel confident to create a converged and redundant network with AV switches, it’s time to enter the real world! In this module, you’ll review all concepts discovered at level II (Redundancy, IGMP Snooping, QoS-CoS, VLANs…), but this time, you’ll learn how it really works at protocol level, and you’ll learn how to set these protocols on IT switches. 

THEORY

This module includes a bit more theory than the other ones, as you’ll face the foundation of IT networks. Again, the whole course is designed in a way to make your life easier!

METHODOLOGY
