From Quick Tutorials to Refresher Courses
Iteris is proud to offer high-performance detection products that are user-friendly and reliable. However, customers have often shared the catch-22 of the situation, which is that Iteris products work so well that they interact less with the solution over time. This is great news from a product performance standpoint!
On the other hand, when the time comes to modify a detector file or implement a new application (i.e., counts, bike or pedestrian detection), their confidence is often not where they would like it to be or where it was when they first deployed the solution. This is where Iteris’ training courses become so helpful for everyone from beginners to experts.
Whether you need a quick tutorial or refresher course, it’s available online! Since courses are recorded and accessible 24/7, simply pick a time convenient to your busy schedule. Not to mention all training courses and tutorials are free!
