Q&A on AVIXA CTS Rus

Q: I took the original Dante Certification program.  Can I earn CTS RUs again for Second Edition?
A: Yes.  The new program is significantly enhanced to include new Dante features and deeper networking instruction.   

Q: The on-demand class is worth 3-RUs, but the in person class is only worth 2-RUs.  Are these considered to be different classes?
A: Yes, and you can stack them to earn a total of 5-RUs per level.  (2-RU for the live class plus 3-RU for the on-demand class.)  So, if you take all three levels in both forms, that is a total of 15 RUs.

Dante Certification Training at InfoComm

The Dante Certification Training at InfoComm focuses on the same content Audinate’s on-demand learning at https://audinate.com/certify.  The live and on-demand classes complement each other, and we know many students benefit from taking the class in both forms. 

Live classes offer an opportunity to ask questions of the instructors and see some real Dante equipment in action.  However, as these steps can eat up some time, the live class may streamline or skip some chapters that are more straight-forward to the bulk of students.  For the best personal education and best scores on the Dante Certification tests, it is recommended that students also watch the on-demand classes. 

The Dante Certification tests are taken online.  Due to the time constraints at the show, time is not allotted in the class to take the test.  Attendees can do so using the public WiFi at the convention center, back at their hotel or after they return home from the convention. 

Class information

Dante Certification Level 1, Second Edition (Abridged) 

Wed, June 8:  8:30am-10:30am, Room W307-W308 

Dante Certification Level 1 (2nd Edition) focuses on the skills to design, set up and operate a Dante audio/video system on a single network switch.  This class will establish fundamental skills in audio, video and networking, and offer an introduction to the main tools used in a Dante network.  Demonstrations offer attendees a practical feel for Dante's breadth, reach and simplicity. 

The 2nd Edition class is significantly enhanced from the original Dante Certification. This class adds significant educational content on video, making sense of Dante devices with multiple network ports on them, as well as deeper tours of Dante Controller’s screens.  

Dante Certification Level 2, Second Edition (Abridged) 

Wed, June 8:  11:00am-1:00pm, Room W307-W308 

Pre-requisite – Dante Certification Level 1, Second Edition 

Dante Certification Level 2 (2nd Edition) builds the necessary skillset to confidently design, set up, operate and troubleshoot Dante systems that span multiple network switches. A combination of live and pre-recorded demonstrations (due to required scale or elapsed time) will bring these features to life. 

This 2nd Edition class is significantly enhanced from the original Dante Certification. It builds a much stronger understanding of networking, traffic management and troubleshooting. This greatly helps technicians manage systems at this level, and it prepares them well for Level 3.

Dante Certification Level 3, Second Edition (Abridged) 

Wed, June 8:  1:30pm-3:30pm, Room W307-W308

Pre-requisite – Dante Certification Level 2, Second Edition 

Dante Certification Level 3 (2nd Edition) tackles the fundamentals of Layer 3 enterprise networks and operating on converged networks. Dante Domain Manager™ is a key piece of this puzzle - this class explains the role Dante Domain Manager plays, how it enables more network capability and offers a view of the server itself. 

This 2nd Edition of Level 3 is significantly different than the original version. Since the original Level 3 class was developed before Dante Domain Manager was available, it only taught the challenges of a Layer 3 network. This new version brings the challenges to life in a more relatable way. And because the class now demonstrates Dante Domain Manager, attendees walk away with a clearer understanding of how to solve these issues. 

Time in the class is also spent on individual IP sockets that create the Dante solution. Thus, students walk away with a better understanding of troubleshooting and can better interface with IT – especially when networks might start with restrictive security policies.
