Security business Abloy UK has revealed the dates of its 2022 Academy Foundations and Foundations Plus CPD courses.
The free courses are designed to train installers, security managers, end users and specifiers, giving them the skills and knowledge on emergency and panic escape compliance.
The Foundations course is designed to help delegates understand the minimum legal performance criteria for access control locking applications for fire and escape doors, BS EN 179 and BS EN 1125 and help attendees to specify only compliant solutions. They also include the new BS EN 13637 standard on electronically controlled exit systems for use on escape routes.
For individuals who complete the first course, the Foundation Plus course is an advanced add-on, going one step further offering in-depth industry standards and compliance terminology. This provides attendees with the knowledge to specify products that are suitable for both the application and door type.
Both courses are led by Pat Jefferies, commercial director at Abloy UK, an expert in locks and door opening solutions. Pat is retained by BSI and CEN as the UK’s Electric Locking Technical Expert, and is a member of committees responsible for the development and improvement of new standards and legislation across Europe.
The day-long courses take place at Abloy UK headquarters in Willenhall, West Midlands. Courses are free of charge.
