Hands-On Training in Malvern

If you are new to HDANYWHERE then we would recommend that you complete the beginner (1 Day) course first before tackling the advanced course. It is possible to skip the beginner course if your HDA Pro account shows sufficent cloud connected systems.

Please note, our courses do not offer basic training covering subjects like termination, HDMI basics, HDBaseT etc. For HDMI and HDBaseT fundamentals go here and for general industry basic training, take a look at courses available from CEDIA.
