ACCESS CONTROL COURSE
An effective Access Control System can form an integral part of an effective security system. This course is designed to give participants a practical knowledge of the operation and installation of Access Control Systems at a foundation level.
This practically based course is designed to give participants a practical knowledge of the operation and installation of
Access Control Systems at a foundation level.
- On completion of the Course, having been successful in TWO examinations (one written, one practical) the participant will receive a Hi-Tech Training Certificate.
- Please note: - Access Control course participants who have attended the Hi-Tech Training courses in
Alarm Installation and Digital, Text & Voice Communicators may sit the FETAC written examination leading to FETAC - Level 5 Component Award – Intruder Alarm & Access Control (C20161) on the last training session of this course.
18 hours (6 x 3 hour training sessions). Classes will be held in comfortable surroundings.
