ASSA ABLOY, the global leader in door opening solutions, has reported unrivalled success for its purpose-built training academy, since opening its doors over six months ago.
Located at its UK head office, the state-of-the-art facility provides tailored training programmes in technical, legislative and product areas for security specifiers, installers and end users.
This year alone, the academy has already enjoyed unrivalled success with over 40 event days and 20 training courses taking place, with a variety of large companies and organisations, including the University of Keele, Carillion and the Institute of Architectural Ironmongers in attendance.
Commenting on the success of the academy, Andy Stolworthy, Product Manager at ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, said:
Were extremely encouraged by the level of uptake weve had on our courses and the amount of customers using the facilities for event days, as well as the positive response from installers and industry bodies to the training facility and services it provides.
In addition to the quality of training provided, participants have been most impressed with the clear messaging and insights into the future of standards, which we are able to provide.
Thanks to our collective experience and expertise we can offer up to date information and practical advice on the latest standards affecting the industry, but what has been most beneficial to delegates has been the role weve played in informing them about the future of standards.
ASSA ABLOY has really taken the lead and has used the Academy as a forum for discussing what we believe will be the future standards and tests that products and services will need to adhere too this, more concrete guidance, has been really appreciated by all the attendees.
Plus, our onsite UKAS accredited testing facility, means we are able to work with customers and carry out the tests that we feel will become mandatory in the future.
The Academy consolidates ASSA ABLOYs vast experience, and is a great way to expand skill sets and develop industry knowledge from the leading brands in door opening solutions, as well as an inviting space to hold events. We look forward to its continued success.
The ASSA ABLOY Academy features fully equipped classroom, workshop and showroom facilities, and offers an extensive programme of tailored training courses that will aid door solution specification and installation, supported by major brands in door opening solutions.
Training courses available at the Academy range from RIBA approved, CPD seminars providing specification guidance, through to workshop sessions, where installers can receive practical tutorials and installation training on the very latest product solutions and locking technologies.
Invited customers and industry bodies can also use the venue for their own meetings, events and training courses. Whilst the professional showroom and manufacturing site tours can also be incorporated into visits.
