Great Harwood based access control manufacturer, Progeny, drew people from across the country yesterday as they held their monthly engineer training day.
Progeny manufactures door access control systems that are currently installed around the globe. In order to get the right people to install and service the systems they need to share their knowledge with a wealth of independent engineers. Two of the nine engineers came all the way from Essex, whilst others came from Leicester and the Manchester area.
The training sessions equip these engineers with the skills they will need to install and maintain one of their flagship products, the P3 controller. This controller is currently in situ in a wide range of industrial buildings; including football stadia, schools, universities, banks, shops, offices and utilities (such as phone mast towers).
Ian Bend, Progenys Technical Director, has been running the training sessions for over 20 years and has commented how there has been a surge in demand for the courses of late. He says:
It is great to see a rise in numbers of people wanting to increase their knowledge of the Progeny product range. Yesterdays course was fully booked and next months is filling up nicely too. Installers of security products want to have the best training possible to increase their competitive advantage and were pleased that we can help them with this. Weve even been asked to hold a private session in London now a sign that Progeny is showing its worth, even in the capital.
