Videx, a manufacturer and supplier in access control and door entry kits, is supporting the continued development of employees by helping them to achieve industry-recognised qualifications.
Access control and door entry technology is constantly developing, with ever more products entering the marketplace. IP enabled and dependent security products and systems, such as the new Videx video IP door entry offering, is one area which has grown rapidly and it’s vital that security professionals have a detailed understanding of what’s involved in the manufacture, specification, installation and use of IP based systems.
Working with Tavcom Training, Videx is giving the opportunity to employees to study for and attain a BTEC Level 5 Certificate in Professional Practices of Security Network Design. The online course has been designed by Tavcom so that those who take the course acquire a deep understanding of the technology and its application in the security industry.
Neil Thomas, National Sales Manager at Videx, said: “We’re pleased to be working with Tavcom Training who provide a great course in IP door entry technology which will aid the professional development of our staff.
“I believe it’s important to invest in the continuous learning of employees, giving them a wider base of knowledge and skills as their role evolves within an ever changing and challenging industry.”
Billy Paton, Sales Manager for Videx Scotland and Ireland, has just completed the course, receiving the highest ever marks given. Billy received 90% overall, achieving a 96% score in some assessments.
Paton said: “An installer recently asked my advice on how to implement an IP system within an existing network infrastructure. I would have been a bit unsure of the answer in the past, but, because I have done this course, I was able to confidently give him chapter and verse on how to design, install, commission test and manage it, as well as how to use Videx products on the network. He was impressed and appreciative in equal measure.
“I would like to thank my tutor, Peter Mason for all his support and guidance throughout my studies. I am now able to put my new qualification into practice in my day-to-day Videx role and it’s great that Videx is able to help its staff upskill.”
