Your best bet is to get with a tech and learn from them, If you have never worked on systems you have a whole new world to learn, it takes years to get to the level that the moderators and installers of this board are at. You first should learn the cabling side then tackle the system side, get manuals and read them.
Good luck

if you can afford it buy a small system and
put it on your bench and "install it". you can get virtually any manual for wiring and system side.

I know Sundance has Partner Systems, and that would be a good one to start with.

If you are new to the biz, I would suggest you look around your area and see what you are most likely to run into in the field. If you are going to invest in one to learn, you might as well learn one that you will prob end up working on. I see systems everyday that the other guys have'nt seen in years and vice versa. I would also suggest reading through the different manuals and learning what they call the different features between manufacturers. The link for the manuals site at the top of the page would be an excellent start. When I first started the hardest part for me was just the terminolgy. The features are pretty much the same but they are called different things by different mfgs. I knew what I wanted the system to do, but you have to know what they call that feature in order to find it in the manual and make it work. Just my two cents and I hope you do well. You've found a great bunch of guys here that will help any way they can.
