RGB Win Best Training of the Year 2015

9 June 2015

RGB Communications Ltd are delighted to announce that we are the proud winners of the 'Best Training' award at Smart Buildings Awards 2015.


The awards took place after the Essential Install Live! South show at Sandown Park Racecourse on Tuesday 9th June.


At RGB, we pride ourselves on our extensive dealer training program and we strongly believe that training is a critically important offering to our customers. The popularity of RGB's training is self-evident with an impressive 278 delegates participating in our in-house courses during 2014.

Since 1994 our unrivalled commitment to providing quality training continues to be a major element of our service and unlike other distributors, RGB don’t just offer ‘technical’ training courses. We offer training for “how to sell and specify” for sales staff, plus uniquely our generic “Essentials” series of courses on basic AV topics that are not product specific. RGB currently have 3 “Essentials” courses; Audio, Projection and Lighting Control all of which cover the fundamentals of the topic, the technology used and the applications. These have proven to be very popular with new dealers. After a recent Projection Essentials course, a dealer from Electrosonic said: “V.Good, exactly the kind of AV course I need”

RGB’s dedicated training facility at our offices in Hungerford, now offers our largest ever curriculum of topics, with over 13 courses currently available to both our residential and commercial customers:


  • Audio - Essentials

  • Lighting control - Essentials

  • Projection - Essentials

  • Lutron - GRAFIK RA2

  • Lutron - Introduction to Residential Solutions - Held at Lutron

  • Lutron - QS Homeworks Advanced Programming - Held at Lutron

  • Lutron - QS HomeWorks Installation & Programming

  • Oceanair blinds - Factory tour

  • Savant - An Introduction

  • Savant - Level 1 Core Training

  • Savant - Level 2 Advanced

  • Networking & Wi-Fi for AV Systems - CEDIA CEU Accredited

  • Pakedge - Workshop

  • Pakedge - How to sell and specify

  • Middle Atlantic - Integrating the Rack - CEDIA CEU Accredited

  • ClearOne - Technical & Product Specialist

Thanks to our continued and significate investment in training resources, our more recent courses (notably Savant, Lutron QS and Pakedge Workshops) are very “hands on” so that delegates are able to do practical exercises with real kit in an environment conducive to learning. After a recent Savant Level 1 Course, a dealer from AT+C said: “Well balanced course. Good mix of hands on and theory!”


Not only do we have a wide range of courses available, but we also recognise that a busy dealer’s most valuable commodity is their time, so most of our courses are designed to be just 1-day long. To further assist delegates with the cost of attending we charge only a nominal, £25 fee which covers the cost of administration, booking, refreshments, lunch and supporting course literature. After completing the Networking and Wi-Fi for AV systems Course a dealer from AVMI commented:  “Worth while attending and would recommend this to my colleagues.”


As one of the founding members of CEDIA UK, RGB has been supporting the CI market for over 25 years and our course tutors, which include RGB's Chief Technology Officer, CEDIA Accredited David Webster, are well respected in the industry, with experienced technical backgrounds and a complete understanding of the challenges that today's integrators face.
