Access Control Course - Spring 2014 (CLOSED)

Author: Brian Rhodes, Published on Apr 11, 2014

Registration is now closed.

Our next IPVM access control course will meet live online, starting on April 15th for 12 times over 6 weeks (Tuesday and Thursday from 11am - 12pm ET) teaching access control - regulations, doors, locks, readers, controllers, networking, management software and more.

Have a busy schedule? All classes are recorded so you can watch on-demand, and you'll keep your access to them as a member. Those who successfully participate and pass the final shall become IPVM Access Control Certified (see list of IPVM Certified Professionals).

All materials for the course are selected from readings available to IPVM PRO members, but presented in a structured format that includes weekly quizzes and discussions to drill key concepts home. For more details on the curriculum and topics, be sure to check out the Access Control class syllabus.

Class Schedule

Classes will meet on the dates listed below:

Benefits

Unlike manufacturer classes that focus only on vendor-specific equipment, IPVMU educates on the entire system. Not only do we address the design fundamentals of controller boards, interfaces, and databases, we examine how to choose the right mix of devices for an optimal system: We address the door itself, and move backward into credential types, readers, and locks - and how life/safety codes impact their use.

Get Certified

At the end of classes, you will take a comprehensive final exam including multiple choice and essay questions. If you pass, you will become IPMVU Access Control certified (see list of IPVM Certified Professionals) and receive a printable certificate like the one below:

The course costs $299 and is only open to IPVM PRO members. All live classes are recorded, student gain access to a special 'class-only' discussion group, and there is private feedback from us.

Registration is now closed.

Hi, how much time is each session and are you planning any training at the GMT timing (for the EMEA region)?

Thanks,

Roger

Hello!

Each session runs about 60 minutes, and additional (optional) time is set aside at the end of each class to cover general questions for a total period of about 75 - 90 minutes.

The live sessions are scheduled for 11-12pm ET, but everything is recorded and viewable for those who cannot make the live sessions. In addition, there is a dedicated discussions area for class questions for those unable to ask them live.

There have been many EMEA-located members who have completed the course, so the format works for those in other timezones.

There is a 5 hours time difference between US ET and GMT. This means the course will start at 16:00 / 4pm which is during normal business hours.

We set the time at 11 am ET to help European members attend in the late afternoon / early evening.
