Abloy Academy 2024 training dates announced

November 28, 2023


Abloy UK has announced its new schedule of training dates via its Academy and Digital Access Solutions Academy, with courses on a wide range of topics, from emergency and panic escape compliance to the latest innovations in digital access technology.

The Foundations and Foundations Plus 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.

Abloy course options

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 those 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.

Launched in 2022, the Digital Access Solutions Academy is a purpose-built facility to showcase, work with, install and test Abloy’s extensive range of products, with particular focus on new digital solutions and ecosystems.

It offers training on solutions such as CLIQ, Incedo, SMARTair, Aperio, and the ePED Escape Door System. Courses are led by Johnathon Dale, Digital Access Solutions Academy Manager, and are designed to help installers meet the needs of the fast-changing market for smarter security.

All courses take place at Abloy UK headquarters in Willenhall, West Midlands. Most courses are free of charge, offering attendees a complimentary educational experience.

The courses will run on the following dates:
