Abloy UK announces course dates for new Foundations CPD course 2022

Abloy UK has revealed the dates of its 2022 Academy Foundations and Foundations Plus CPD courses, as part of its continuing commitment to setting the standard in emergency and panic escape compliance. 

The free courses are designed to train installers, security managers, end users and specifiers, giving them the skills and knowledge to ensure maximum safety and security while helping to save lives in an emergency.

The Foundations course is designed to help delegates understand the minimum legal performance criteria for access control locking applications for fire and escape doors, BS EN 179 and BS EN 1125 and help attendees to specify only compliant solutions. They also include the new BS EN 13637 standard on electronically controlled exit systems for use on escape routes.

For individuals who complete the first course, the Foundation Plus course is an advanced add-on, going one step further in educating delegates on in-depth industry standards and compliance terminology. This provides attendees with the knowledge to specify products that are suitable for both the application and door type.

Both courses are led by Pat Jefferies, Commercial Director at Abloy UK, an expert in locks and door opening solutions. Pat is retained by BSI and CEN as the UK’s Electric Locking Technical Expert, and is a member of committees responsible for the development and improvement of new standards and legislation across Europe.

Pat says: “Abloy UK has a strong reputation for producing security solutions of superior quality, but we also recognise that the high performance of our products can only be realised by the abilities of the people who specify and install them.

“This is exactly why we developed the Abloy Academy over 12 years ago – to provide training of the highest standard. In that time, the Academy brand has gone from strength to strength to be widely is recognised as a mark of excellence and accreditation.

“Ever changing legislation means that it’s also important to stay up to date with the latest best practice and being proactive with training is a great way to kick off the new year.

“Ultimately, the courses are not just about standards for standards sake. Simply put, if an emergency escape system is not compliant then lives are at risk, so I take great pride in knowing that the Academy is doing its part in helping people escape safely from a building if they need to.”

The day-long courses take place at Abloy UK headquarters in Willenhall, West Midlands. Courses are free of charge, offering delegates a complimentary educational experience that can provide two years validity on industry standards.

The courses will run on the following dates:
