Essential Info

Securing your home and family is always high on any homeowners list of priorities, but finding the correct security and access control system and accessories is a little daunting when they're laid out in front of you and look the same. But you don't just need any security and access control system, you need the security and access control system. So, rather than blindly grabbing security and access control equipment and thinning out your wallet, step it up and really dive into how home security and access controls work, and get some training so you can roll up your sleeves and begin installing the correct systems with Bedrock Learning's BL-oc-SEC Security and Access Control Online Training Course.

This online course delivers a comprehensive and detailed overview of security protection systems including wiring, contacts and sensors, components, fire and safety protection devices, control options, and user interfaces. The course reviews access controller methods such as doors, gates, locks, and device programming if devices are on the same communication network. You will also learn correct programming, testing, and troubleshooting methods to make sure that your installed and interconnected devices are functioning properly and protecting your home. This course is divided into 13 sections with each section ending with a quiz, and a comprehensive test at the very end to demonstrate and test your knowledge. This 8 hour long course is designed to be taken at whatever pace you find comfortable, and upon completion you are awarded a Course Completion Certificate and earn up to 4 CEDIA CEUs (Continuing Education Units) and 8 infoComm International RUs.
