Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)

RFID is a global phenomenon. Driven by mandates by the world's largest retailers and the US DoD, RFID promises to become as ubiquitous in the supply chain as
barcodes. Imagine reading product codes from across the factory or warehouse floor while the products are still inside shipping crates. Image stores without "Closed for Inventory" signs, out-of-stock conditions, and even checkout counters. Already, businesses worldwide are deploying RFID, or evaluating how to do so.  Setting up RFID-equipped supply chains that will read "every product code, every time, at ever stage, under all conditions" is a daunting, disruptive task. It requires individuals who can
plan, install, optimize, and maintain RFID systems. And Heathkit has created a course to provide the needed knowledge to RFID technicians.

 

Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP)

VoIP is poised to redefine the way business communicates. It's the competitive new model that can do more than cut communications costs. It can improve your communications at every possible touchpoint inside and outside your business. Learn how to migrate to VoIP effectively and avoid the pitfalls. It comes

as no surprise that computers are now being used for “phone calls”. Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) is the use of a computer for verbal communication

-- users are able to use the computer as they would their old phone lines.  As demand for VoIP increases in business and in the home, so does the need for skilled VoIP

technicians.  Heathkit Educational Systems (HES) has created a course that introduces the fundamentals and basic principles of VoIP technology.

through hands-on experiments and detailed exercises, students will be given a solid foundation for an exciting new career in VoIP.

Fuel Cell Technology - Hampden

 

Fuel Cell / Renewable Energy -Heathkit

The conservation of environmental resources is one of today’s hot topics. As our natural resources dwindle, finding alternative, or eco-friendly, solutions to

energy and consumption has become the cornerstone in the conservation effort. Solar panels, hybrid cars, thermoelectric watches and hydro - powered

machines are just a few examples of this effort. The concept behind all of these products is renewable energy. Heathkit Educational Systems’ Renewable
Energy course introduces students to the principles of
thermoelectricity, solar cells and fuel cells (renewable energy). Through a series of hands-on

experiments, students will learn the fundamentals and applications of renewable energy, and how it fits into the real world of today.

 

Phase 2 E9-1-1 Dispatching Trainers

By using our OMNI-COMM Simulators call takers can make mistakes during training without making headlines on the job. The ability to utilize all of the features found in today's high tech communication centers can only be accomplished through live console training (which may endanger life or property) or through using OMNI-COMM Simulators. Learning how to take control of calls is just the beginning of the multiple feature interaction at a call takers console.

Communication skills are much more than a telephone conversation. Trainees learn not only to listen to the caller but to the background sounds, like detectives they listening for clues to what is really going on. With the OMNI-COMM simulator all of these sounds can be manipulated for a thoroughly exhilarating experience.

Instant call playback has been implemented to provide the trainee the opportunity to immediately replay a call to verify the callers' information.

Our Phase II E9-1-1 Simulator has been developed to initiate training scenarios that will encompass all of the capabilities of present E9-1-1 Communication Center Technology. Mastering the call takers position means practice, practice, practice which is the only way to be completely prepared for that call you hope you never get.

Heathkit Computer Forensics  
Operating systems and programs leave a vast array of evidentiary artifacts that can be used to establish the guilt or innocence of accused parties. Computer forensics has been described as the autopsy of a computer hard drive because specialized software tools and techniques are required to analyze the various levels at which computer data has been stored after the fact.

Computer forensics, once a discipline restricted to a small group of law enforcement officers, is now a booming business. Demand for services is exploding as electronic evidence becomes widely used in court, and as companies become concerned about the use of computer networks for corporate spying and other mischief.

Heathkit's Computer Forensics course prepare your students with knowledge and hands on exercises in the computer forensics field.
