Course Description

This course delivers a thorough understanding of the many aspects of home theater projects. Online instruction clearly explains the technology principles of signals including analog and digital, aspect ratios, video formats, video reproduction, audio formats, audio reproduction, and power conditioning. Students learn basic concepts including source components, processing equipment, video displays and speakers. Detailed step-by-step system design and installation procedures are presented, along with video and audio calibration of a home theater system to maximize performance. Testing and troubleshooting methodologies are provided to help ensure a successful installation.

Informative text, detailed color diagrams, and engaging case studies make learning home theater efficient and enjoyable. Special In Depth articles provide deeper background and technical information on critical topics, and Project Management Tips coach installers on good management practices. An online Glossary provides ready access to definitions of key terms.

The course is divided into fourteen training modules – each module ends with a quiz, and a comprehensive test at the end of the course allows students to demonstrate their newfound knowledge of home theater systems.

After completion of this course, students are prepared for hands on, product specific training in a training center or on a job site.


Students should be familiar with the video display system (TV and input components such as DVD player) and have basic knowledge of audio (see the Whole House Audio Technology and Distribution Online Course for more information).
