BTL Mark: Resolve interoperability issues & increase buyer confidence
for Your Vocation - our back to school issue.
seems natural that September should be our educational issue as most of
our young folks are getting back to school. I like this old retro
picture of the dinosaur student as it reminds us that there is a little
dinosaur in us all and we need to keep at the task of self-education.
The dinosaur student has been on our education page
since ever but when I started to review our education links I was
amazed how many still link to very valuable resources. Rather
than rework the complete section we have corrected a few broken links and
chosen to add new information (mostly links to 100s of videos). If a
worth a thousand words one can only guess the value of a video. Videos
do a great job of summarizing our work and the ones that we have linked
will allow us to
quickly continue on our journey with the Education we need to keep us
in our Vocation.
If you are aware of
any other resources for our
education page please share with me in an email.
We are very pleased
to announce our four free education sessions to be held at AHR Expo 2015
This is our 16th year of providing these educational sessions. We
acknowledge the ongoing support of International Exhibitions in
providing the constant venue and thank them for their support of

How Smart Automated Buildings and IoT create Smart Cities.
Third annual Connection Community Collaboratory meeting.
I am very pleased with this year's line-up of sessions and to be joined by Paul Oswald in our first ever addressing the skill gap session, very important for our industries’ survival.
We have added to
our education page Videos that help explain Smart Automated IoT Buildings;
these videos help depict Building Automation,
Smart Building direction and the internet of everything. The videos, some which are dated, challenge us all to make what is possible,
most of them were created by large companies they need us all in
the industry to
make these dreams come true. I hope these well done
promotional videos will allow us quickly to communicate and attract the
the youth we are seeking for our IoT journey and
help them become excited about
Video is the new medium for training and we have provided links to hundreds of videos that are free to help you better understand. The videos were made to instruct on the use and setup of products and services but understanding how all these products interact is the real education.
It is OK to fast
forward a video to see if it contains the info you need to learn.
Amazing Video Training Resource was
created to provide controls professionals a place to learn and share
information about the rapidly changing world of commercial and
