Synology Surveillance Architect (SIT4)

Networking, Synology

The two-day intensive course teaches the proper configuration of video monitoring solutions for small installations and large centrally managed projects. In addition to video monitoring features, the course is also about planning camera and network setup. The course is delivered in a hybrid format, i.e. both face-to-face and virtual at the same time, and each participant is free to choose their preferred form of learning. All participants have access to online labs where practical exercises are conducted. The course is open to groups of 6 - 12 participants. This ensures individual access and the necessary interactivity for each participant.

The SIT (Synology Intensive Trainings) program offers official Synology training sessions where professional certified trainers teach you how to get the most out of your Synology NAS. Now available are two-day intensive SIT training modules DSM Architect, Backup Architect, Productivity Architect and Surveillance Architect with certification options.

The courses focus on planning and executing a Synology NAS development and implementation project. You will learn how to plan and scale hardware as well as configure it properly for different network environments. You will also learn about system security and maintenance issues. You will also learn how to synchronize your central data with clients and other locations, edit texts and spreadsheets simultaneously with your teams, and set up your own mail and chat server.

All DSM Architect, Backup Architect, Productivity Architect and Surveillance Architect courses culminate in Synology certification. This 45-minute test is administered immediately after the training and results are communicated to participants immediately upon completion. All participants who successfully complete the certification test will receive an official certificate with the Synology logo.

The obtained Synology certification is valid only in the following countries: Albania, Armenia Azerbaijan, Bosnia, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czechia, Estonia, Georgia, Hungary, Kazakhstan, Kosovo, Kyrgyzstan, Latvia, Lithuania, North Macedonia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Türkyie, Ukraine and Uzbekistan. If you come from another country and require the official certification, please, let us know and we will redirect you to the apropriate Synology Training Center.

The course is designed for:

  • for resellers, salespeople, technical staff, IT consultants and systém integrators;
  • anyone interested in Synology products and their effective use in practice;
  • all those interested in the official Synology certification.

Educational approach

  • The lecture includes practical exercises and constant sharing of the lecturer's experience and opinions with the participants.
  • SIT trainings are led by our certified trainers and are held mainly in Prague or Brno, or online or combined (hybrid).
  • Each training session consists of classic classroom content and hands-on demonstrations, with the DSM Architect, Backup Architect, Productivity Architect and Surveillance Architect courses culminating in a final Synology certification test.

Form of Training

Although we offer this training in a hybrid form (simultaneously in person and virtually), for technical and practical reasons we recommend all participants to attend this training in person if possible. This is because, in addition to the theory, the course also includes practical exercises using camera systems and the online form might be too abstract for the participants, especially with regard to the fulfilment of the "hands-on" educational approach.

The course is open for groups of 6-12 participants. This ensures a sufficient individual approach and the necessary interactivity for each participant, including space for questions.

Thank you for the certificate and thank you very much for the great training. Both trainers are awesome and everything was great. In fact, this is the best training I have ever had in my life. I thought GOPAS was TOP, but now I have a different opinion which I will be happy to spread further among my colleagues.
