Re: Free Online Training Course

@MarcR I'm running Chrome 64bit and Chromium 64bit on Ubuntu, but it also seems to be the same problem on Android.

 

@ryancris since you don't have any problems with it, could you please say which codec is used in your stream? You need to enable the statistics for nerds to see it. What OS and browser you are using, would be good to know as well.

Re: Free Online Training Course

You brought up a good point @makuser.  I'm using IE in Windows.  I tried Firefox and it is alot better.  Still a little low, but not I'm not straining.. I can relax more while watching.

 

@ryancris is prolly younger and has better hearing, lol. (or)  He also prolly has very good speakers with a good amplifier.  I'm using cheaper dell speakers, but they are usb powered.  (i.e. its not a passive speaker with no amp) $50 speakers would prolly be louder than my $15 speakers...... but I have never had issues with sound in the last 5 years since I had these speakers until I came across these videos. :-(

 

@UBNT-Jamie  I'm of the mind set that volume should be louder by default on videos/music/etc.  You can always turn the volume down if needed.  But volume can only be increased so high, depending on the equipment.  LOL, I guess this relates to the volume war you referenced in your previous post.

No, it's not that. It's simply the volume of these videos, that's just a lot lower than the rest. I'm not old btw (20).

Please also check which codec you had while using the crappiest-browser-on-earth(tm) and also FireFox. (right click on video -> stats for nerds).

Re: Free Online Training Course

IE doesn't give any good info:

timestamp seconds 12.947
854x480, 1248 average kbps, 100% volume
TagStreamPlayer, HTTPS/DASH/VOD, 16309 kbps
10 stage fps, 0 video fps, 6 dropped, 0 kbps
software video rendering, accelerated video decoding
-44.009 db, 1 audio factor

 

Firefox gives better info.

Video ID: tuF8seoUhZA
Dimensions: 1280 x 720
Resolution: 1280 x 720@30
Volume: 100%
Stream Host: r1---sn-p5qlsu7e
Stream Type: https
CPN: PKOMj2ZxJWtHj4UN
Mime Type: video/mp4; codecs="avc1.4d401f"
DASH: yes (136/140)
Connection Speed: 23130 Kbps

 

In short, yes the volume on the videos are very very very low when published.  Depending on the users hardware/software, it may or maynot be an issue for them.  The volume level should be addressed at the source (video) level if possible for a better user experience going forward.  I will leave it at that, as I'm not trying to muddy up this topic with alot of back and forth on sound.. woops too late, lol.. 

 

..and on a side note I want to get off my chest, lesson 2.5 video it shows an example of a household using like 2.25 kWh in a day.. umm.. I'd like to meet this "green" person... Shoot in the summer with AC I use 50-60 kWh/day.  In the winter, I use about 30 kWh/day. (I have a gas furnace).  I know I'm an energy hog, but I have a server and a couple PC's running 24/7 in my house.  But as of two months ago, I do have all LED light bulbs in my house....  Every month on my bill, they point out the fact that I use 25%-30% more energy than my neighbors... lol.. (ohh btw, those are all gas meters not electrical meters in the video... but that was brought up several times already, hahaha)

Re: Free Online Training Course

@UBNT-Jamie, is this free training a time limited offer or will it remain free for the foreseeable future?  Also, are we limited to only going through the courseware one time or can we revisit it as a refresher?

 

I have been holding off taking the course because I suspect it will be months before product will be available in Canada and wanted to be able to have hands-on practical soon after taking the course.  Also, even if the supply chain in Canada were to be established sooner, Winter has already set in here.

Re: Free Online Training Course

@LLigetfa we will continue to offer the course for free--from a business standpoint, it is a good idea to sell & market sunMAX through wintertime when you have more time resources to dedicate. In the chance that conditions dictate installs, you can even install to get a step ahead of solar competitors who shy away from winter work.

Re: Free Online Training Course

When the going gets tough, the tough gets going.  I used to turn down Summer work in favor of Winter work when I worked outdoors in heavy construction decades ago so am no stranger to the challenges of the snow, ice, and the cold.  The reduced productivity due to the impediments might not make up for the advantage of the competition sitting it out.  Customers that do the math when comparing quotes probably are not going to base their decision based on how soon they can start enjoying the ROI if sooner comes at a premium price.

 

I actually think that selling at the peak of Winter may actually be counter-productive as the customer may wonder how the snow buildup they see on their roof may impact PV output if the snow later builds up on the panels.  Better IMHO, to not have the elephant in the room when having the discussion.

Re: Free Online Training Course

FYI, Certificate Plugin has been added to site—upon completion of all activities (including feedback survey), you can download your PDF Certificate. The same applies to all UBNT training courses Man Wink

Re: Free Online Training Course

@UBNT-Jamie

It would be good once things settle down with the new system is to give the ability to have digital copies of previous courses:

I.e i completed over the last couple years the UEWA and UCWA but obviously have been issued with the usual Paper certificate,

 

So to summerise,

1 - does the new online courses give you the ability to download their cert straight after a pass (similar to USRS)

2 - will there be the ability to have previously issued paper certificated added to training profile to download a digital copy ?

 

I know some others may be wondering the same thing..

@kevigizmo - yes & no. yes, if the course was taken since October 2015, they can down their certificate. But UBWAv1.4 is being replaced anyway; so for the majority of users, to be able to download their electronic copy, they need to take the new courses (which makes sense anyway, since some of these guys passed back in 2012, and should recertify).

 

Edit: removed UEWA from description

Re: Free Online Training Course

@whowe82 i checked with training shipping manager; that should ship before 19 Dec. FYI we moved over to a new distribution model where students receive their printed certificate immediately after class (from trainer).

@DenetechJake I checked the database and only see that you've completed Lesson 1? At least with your account under the same name. If you have any record—feel free to send an email to training@ubnt.com, documenting that you completed the course.

 

Just to re-iterate, each video lesson must be completed (5-15 min. each), then the Feedback Survey (30 seconds), before you can download your certificate.

 

Edit: *video lesson

Re: Free Online Training Course

I put in a support ticket on the 22nd of october because my the course reset my completion.  Sent an email to training@ubnt.com

 

I've started to redo the course as I'm overly excited to try and get some solar power rolled out!

 

(Sorry for being a bother!)
