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.

This Bite Size module will take you through the operation and configuration of all  the elements that make an access control system perform the Anti-Passback (APB) function. As the name suggests, Anti-Passback is a way of preventing a cardholder, once  inside the building, from passing their access control card back to a second individual outside the building, who then uses the same card to gain unauthorised access.

With the huge and increasing interest in different surveillance technologies, this online module provides essential training and information for all individuals involved in managing and using Body Worn Video equipment.  Because BWV technology is seen to be more intrusive than ‘normal’ CCTV surveillance, the importance of understanding the technology, the regulatory landscape and the core operational guidelines, is universally recognised. Establishing clear policy and sound operational practice will ensure the benefits and capabilities of body worn video are maximized for full effectiveness as an incident management and personal safety tool.
