The LonWorks training program consists of an introduction to LonWorks module followed by 12 course modules that align to the LonWorks Installation Handbook Version 3. Each module contains a lecture where students will review key proficiency topics required by the LCP program. It is recommended students have some familiarity with LonWorks and have read the LonWorks Installation Handbook. After each video module, students are encouraged to review the associated chapter in the book and then proceed to the next module. Additional reading assignments accompany several of the modules.
Being self-paced allows students to take as long as needed to review the modules, even repeat modules, pause and skip backward or forward using the built in video controls. On average an estimated time for the preparation and to complete the program is approximately four to five hours.
