Digital CCTV and Remote Access Course

Digital CCTV & Remote Access


The Digital CCTV & Remote Access course is designed to give participants a practical knowledge of integrating Analogue and Digital technologies in addition to access and control from remote locations such as laptops, tablets and mobile phones.

Duration and Schedule

The Digital CCTV & Remote Access course runs over 3 days, the next course commencing on Saturday 16th November at 10.00am

A payment of €100 secures your place on your chosen course. The balance of the course fees of €700 can be paid shortly before course commencement.

Online Virtual Classroom – how it works?

The course will be delivered through blended training consisting of 3 online virtual classroom sessions.

During the virtual classroom sessions, Trainees will have a live video feed with their instructor talking to them, doing practical live demonstrations on equipment being involved actively in the learning.

We will send out a practical kit so that trainees can complete assignments and practical work at home. The kit is the property of Hi-Tech Training and will be returned to Hi-Tech Training on the last day of the course.
(The kits may also be purchased by the learner….see the Kits Page Link for more details).
The kit consists of multimeter, DVR (Digital Video Recorder), Monitor, Cameras, BNC connectors, Coax and security cable, battery, resistors, baluns, cutters, screwdriver, Lens Calculator, Power Supply Units, etc. Trainees will build various projects as part of the course.
The kit forms an integral part of the course, so full course fees need to be paid at least 7 days prior to course commencement to allow time to ship the kit in time for the course.

* If attending the course from outside of Ireland the course practical training kit must be purchased via our online shop in time for delivery before course commencement. The equipment will then remain the property of the trainee.

In preparation for each course, we have a quick informal free 1 hr online meeting approx. 7 days prior to course commencement, to make sure that trainees get connected through Zoom properly, let them know what the virtual classroom will be like and go through any questions they may have. To join the virtual sessions, you will need a PC/Laptop or Tablet with an internet connection. Joining instructions (login IDs, etc.) will be sent before the Informal Induction session.
