DALI and RAPIX Training Courses

The sections that follow are a structured training course in DALI and RAPIX.

The training course sections are modular, and can be used in a presentation format or for on-line self-education.

Each section sets out the preceding sections of assumed knowledge. In general, we recommend starting from the beginning – even if you know and have installed DALI systems before, the course refresh information may be useful or cover something you had forgotten.
