This short course explains in a jargon-free manner how the current 4th and 5th generation mobile networks have evolved, and how faster speeds have been achieved. Aimed at anyone with an interest in how this interesting technology works. Read More

This is a series of three linked Technical Bite Size courses. Part 1 - A Technical Guide to Optical Fibre Part 2 - Operation Part 3 - Termination and Testing This is Part 1 A Technical Guide to Optical Fibre which will explore: Optical scalability and the future of communications Optical network components Fibre construction Single v multimode Fibre problems in installation Optical Fibre is the 21st century bandwidth saviour of communication networks, with advantages such as small size and huge bandwidth. All high speed broadband will eventually deploy fibre, whilst it is becoming more popular in Local Area Networks to provide the carrying capacity for integrated systems. This Bitesize course will give you an understanding of the principles of operation of optical fibre. Read More

This Bite Size course is Part 2 Operation which will explore:Dispersion and its effectSingle and multimode fibre characteristicsOptical lossLasers and how they workThis is the second part of the trilogy on Optical Fibre, which will go into more detail on the technical aspects of the operation of optical fibre. This information is a vital component in broadening the knowledge of optical fibre installation and operation. Read More

It will also give you the skills and ability necessary to service and maintain equipment at component level.     Study times and Entry Requirements   The course contains 8 modules, requiring approximately 35 hours of study in total. There are no prerequisites and no qualifications needed to enroll.   Read More

Specifically for those with an interest in Intruder and Hold up Alarms and Access Control,  Over four ‘easy to digest’ learning modules we cover the wide variety of electronic locks, turnstiles and locking mechanisms available (including maglocks) as well as  cover different types of vehicle barrier systems and turnstiles and simplify the difference between Fail Secure and Fail Unsecure locks. Detection Devices (also referred to as sensors) must be capable of reliably detecting intruders and exhibit a high resistance to false activations, this bite size course will look at what detection devices are, their role, perimeter detection, volumetric detection, system grading, environmental classes, supervision, detection device technologies, operation, installation, false alarm management and sequential confirmation. We then cover the operation and configuration of all the elements that make an access control system perform the Anti-Passback (APB) function before moving onto Electronic Article Surveillance which work by detecting tagged or labelled products being carried through a surveillance area which is generated between pedestal readers or gate reader devices. On completion of the 4 bitesize courses, you will be able to download and print a certificate to demonstrate your learning which is also worth 8 CPD (Continuing Professional Development) points.
