Christie Training

As an organisation Christie has long held the belief that the resellers of our products – our Partners – add value to our AV systems and to our own reputation

We believe learning is a life-long experience and that through continued learning you and your organisation can become increasingly successful.

For this reason Christie has restructured its European Technical Training program into smaller, more manageable, courses. Acknowledging that we share in your success, we are offering all our Partners access to the programs free of charge. (End user training can be arranged at cost, please contact Training-EMEA@ChristieDigital.com)

Current Training Schedule – Partners only

The table above shows an overview of the Christie EMEA training schedule for the coming year. Please note these course are for Partners only. Courses will run subject to sufficient candidates for each course and dates may change without notice. Please confirm your requirements by completing the booking form and sending it to training-EMEA@christiedigital.com

If you need training that is not listed, please contact us at training-emea@christiedigital.com and let us know your requirements.

Each course focuses on a different type of display technology architecture or market. All courses have been designed to increase familiarity with Christie products, their application and how best to work with Christie to achieve the best possible results.

Our training structure features up to three levels of training:

  • Christie Foundation Training – Online training courses offered as pre-requisite to the Intermediate training sessions. These courses offer a comprehensive grounding to the instructor lead courses.
  • Christie Intermediate Training – 2 day Technical Courses aimed at installation and maintenance staff, however sales and project managers will also benefit. Structured towards specific technologies, these courses are pre-requisities for attending Christie Advanced Training
  • Christie Advanced Training – 2 day Service and Repair courses aimed at maintenance and repair technicians, and the entry to Christie Certified Partner Program. Structured for individual technologies, the relevant Intermediate training must be completed first.

In addition to developing Christie's training courses, our own technical services team tutors them. This ensures delegates have access to both expert knowledge of Christie products and tutors who are familiar with the common scenarios delegates face in their work. Intermediate courses also include introductions to the wider Christie Support teams, as well as overviews of processes and procedures to increase the knowledge of working with Christie.

Moreover, the small course sizes help delegates to establish direct contact with Christie Technical Services, which most find invaluable.

We firmly believe the courses on offer will increase the productivity of your personnel, reduce your labour costs and build confidence amongst your staff and your customers. In addition, we are in the process of having our courses Infocomm RU approved, which means candidates will earn Renewal Units towards their CTS certification. These courses are marked with "RU" in the table below.

Our Advanced Training courses are the entry point to our Certified Partner program and cover in-depth troubleshooting, maintenance and repair. Potential candidates must complete the relevant "Intermediate" course first. Once this is done, they can apply to sit the advanced course and from there the partner can apply for Certified Partner status. We offer this training at our offices in Wokingham, although we can undertake it on Partner's premises.
