Access Control Installer Trainee Bundle

Course Overview

This training bundle is comprised of two individual practical training courses: Practical Access Control Installation BTEC Level  and Advanced Access Control BTEC Level 4. It has been created for those with little or no experience in Access Control who may wish to develop a more detailed understanding of how this aspect of technical security works in relation to their role.

Learners will attend two separate practical workshop training programmes in either our Hampshire or Shipley Training Centres, (depending on availability, see dates below). Upon successful completion of each programme, learners will receive two formal BTEC certificates as well as 24 CPD points.
