Before the organization of a KNX course
Create a course in MyKNX
If the training centre has planned any courses, it must first add a KNX course in its MyKNX account, as explained in Creating a Basic course in MyKNX. Students who are interested in taking this course have to sign up for this course by means of their MyKNX account as explained in How to sign up for a KNX course? Once all internal administrative tasks have been carried out (e.g., course fees paid etc.), the training centre must confirm the student's application. More information can be found in First contact with a potential student.
A timetable of the KNX course needs to be drawn up to document the number of hours allocated to the several topics of the KNX course. The timetable shall also include breaks, lunches… as well as the duration of the theoretical and practical exam. This timetable can also be shown on the website of the training centre. The following elements are an indispensable part of a timetable:
- Course name;
- Course date;
- Training documentation version used during the course;
- Number of allocated hours to each chapter, including breaks, lunches…;
- Exam duration;
- Course location;
- Name or number of the classroom;
- Name of the KNX tutor(s);
- The training centre itself chooses the timeframe for the specific course. The individual modules can e.g. be split over several weeks or months.
- This timetable also has to be established when creating the KNX course
- An example of a timetable can be found on the KNX Cloud server (see your MyKNX account for more information).
During the organization of a KNX course
Right before the KNX course starts, it is important to inform the students on the relevant safety regulations. These safety regulations can be oral or written guidelines to prevent possible hazards and thus achieve a maximum degree of efficiency and safety during the KNX course.
Note: An example of the safety regulation can be found on the KNX Cloud server (see MyKNX for more information).
There are two possibilities to document the presence of the student in the KNX course:
- The tutor checks whether the student is present every training day and marks this in his attendance list;
- Each student individually signs the attendance list at the beginning of each day of class;
After the organization of a KNX course
Entering results of the KNX exam(s)
Issuing the KNX Basic/Advanced/HVAC Specialist/Tutor/Refresher course certificate (Optional)
Each student will after successful exam receive a PDF certificate in his/her MyKNX account. If a KNX training centre decides to also issue a paper certificate (not an obligation), then it must do so based on the certificate template that is available on the KNX Cloud server. The content of the certificate shall be according to the sample certificate (see document 'Annexes' on the same Cloud server). The KNX certificate must contain the following details:
- name, date, and place of birth of the student
- title and contents of the course
- duration and time of the course
- date of issue, name of training centre (with logo of the training centre)
- place of examination
- signature of head of training and KNX certified tutor
Archiving of documents used before, during and after the course
The underneath listed documents shall be archived for at least the underneath specified time:
