The Core Curriculum is a 6-part series where students are tested on general Professional AV Industry knowledge. Each HARMAN Professional University Certification will highly encourage a different combination of Core Curriculum courses based on the subject area and entry requirements for a particular course. Each Core Curriculum course consists of optional video training material and an associated online exam. Core Curriculum course completions demonstrate knowledge of industry concepts that will be needed for our training courses and do not expire.
Students must score 80% or higher on the online exams to receive a passing grade. Students obtain industry knowledge from various sources and experiences. As a result, the Core Curriculum video training materials are optional, but highly encouraged. There is no specific order in which Core Curriculum courses should be taken.
When working on HPro U online exams, students can use any resource available to them including web searches, HARMAN website resources, notes from videos, industry trade organization sites, publications, and even more experienced co-workers. One purpose for our exams is to have the student seek information from different resources. Therefore, the online exams can be minimized, closed, or interrupted. The learning management system will remember where the student left off.
Each Instructor Led Course carries with it suggested Core Curriculum components. Students are highly encouraged to complete these online courses before attending a HARMAN Professional University Instructor Led Course.
