The poor quality of CCTV images often seen, does not inspire much confidence in the technology. However the purpose of this course is to ensure you apply best practice in all your work with CCTV systems. With the recent terrorist outrages in London, Paris and other cities, CCTV systems have been essential as a key tool in fighting crime. And have perhaps shifted from being part of "Big Brother" to a useful tool. CCTV systems have undergone a remarkable technology transformation in the past decade from analog to digital and in operating on a wireless or cabled network, with a host of additional features. This has made the design and maintenance considerably more complex.

The programme

This Competency in Troubleshooting, Designing and Installing Digital and Analog Closed Circuit TV Systems course at Engineering Institute of Technology  provides you with useful expertise in building and maintaining a high quality CCTV system.
