Abloy UK has launched a new RIBA-approved CPD training course, entitled ‘Digital Transformation in Physical Security’, which attendees can complete to achieve double CPD points.
The company says the course ‘provides insight into the disruptive world of digital technology, and how it is impacting on conventional physical security with the introduction of mechatronic locks and keys’. Delegates will learn how the technology can be deployed ‘to achieve an innovative, integrated, future-proof locking solution’.
Abloy UK added: “The course explains the technology’s benefits – which include improved levels of security, traceability, and management of assets, and how improvements in efficiency can reduce an organisation’s carbon footprint. It will examine how digital technology can be integrated into an organisation’s operational systems and processes to deliver a safer, more efficient workplace, with a rapid ROI, and how the data from a locking system can be shared with health, safety, and staff competency processes to contribute towards seamless corporate compliance. In addition, we will focus on why this technology is more cost- effective and quicker to deploy, as well as more aesthetically pleasing, than many conventional access control solutions.”
Attendees will work towards a number of learning outcomes, such as how to improve the design and usability of buildings with the inclusion of digital, future-proof mechatronic locking solutions to help achieve ‘smart buildings’. Assa Abloy added: “Insights will also be given into how a mechatronic locking solution reduces cost and improves sustainability, and has become part of the IoT and Big Data, and the resulting benefits.”
