URC Reveals New Mission:Control Dates
Intensive multi-day sessions to be held simultaneously in New York and Los Angeles.
Harrison, N.Y. – July 2, 2012 – Due to continued demand from interested custom integrators, URC today added six new dates for its highly popular Mission:Control educational events.
The added sessions will take place July 11 to 13, July 16 to 18, July 18 to 20, July 25 to 27, July 30 to August 1, and August 1 to 3. On each of the dates, and for the first time, sessions will be held simultaneously at URC headquarters in Harrison, N.Y., and at the Custom Hotel in Los Angeles, providing even more attendance options for integrators.
Mission:Control offers extensive two and one-half day training with full certification for URC’s new Total Control whole-house control system, which is now available to dealers. The program features a significant hands-on section, which provides attending dealers the opportunity to put their classroom training to immediate, real-world use. All URC Mission:Control training events provide dealers with eight (8) CEDIA CEU training credits.
The events will be run by URC’s top-level training staff, and will feature appearances by top executives of the company on select dates. URC offers free hotel accommodations and hosted meals to attendees.
Said Seth Gatewood, owner of Colorado-based AV Technologies Group, of a previous Mission:Control event: “URC thanked those who joined the training for having invested their time. In reality, I feel like it is URC that’s putting a major investment in their dealers—preparing them with a strong overview of the product and how to program the system, and in helping their dealers succeed. After participating in the training and talking with various members of the URC team, I’ve decided to incorporate the Total Control product as a major offering within my organization. It’s a perfect fit for our business model and we’re excited to be offering Total Control.”
Added Leonard Macias, systems integrator with Mark's Audio-Video in Irwindale, Calif.: “I found [Mission:Control] one of the most insightful and worthwhile training events I've been to in quite some time. It was great to learn alongside other URC programmers who share the same interest in the product as well as interest in the technology. The URC trainers are top-notch. With their wide range of knowledge in the product as well as their experience in the field, I knew they were the right instructors for this event. It was a wonderful experience and I can't wait until URC releases new products so I can attend another training. Thanks to all the URC training staff for filling my head with so many cool new ways to make our clients smile.”
Interested direct URC dealers can sign up for these exclusive events online via URC University, and should contact their URC sales manager for the PIN code necessary to register. Dealers are encouraged to contact Amanda at 800-901-0800 (URC headquarters) if they have any registration questions.
Mission:Control brings URC dealers together to learn everything there is to know about URC’s new Total Control whole-house control products and technology from the very people who invented it. Each technician and programmer has the opportunity to specify, design, program and test Total Control products, as well as receive feedback on their personal performance and product familiarity. Ten racks and full demonstration systems allow for in-depth hands-on training and certification to enable URC dealers to install Total Control systems (and end users to purchase them) with confidence. Other benefits include limited demonstration system offers and special limited discounts.
