Gallagher Security launches Augmented Reality Training in Australia

June 2024 Training & Education, Access Control & Identity Management


Gallagher Security has announced the latest addition to its innovative suite of training solutions, Augmented Reality Training. Launching in Australia, Gallagher demonstrates its continued commitment to innovation and improving access to security training opportunities.

Partnering with Altoura, Gallagher's first augmented reality training environment is the Perimeter Fence Installer Course, which combines cutting-edge technology with Gallagher’s leading perimeter security solutions.

Training Solutions Engineer at Gallagher Security Australia, Kirk Jarvis, says, “Our foray into learning through an augmented reality environment will revolutionise how our channel partners interact with our pulsed perimeter product. We will be taking them on an immersive adventure into all things pulsed perimeter, from the comfort of their office or home. The significant benefits to our channel partners include real-time guidance and reduced downtime while negating the need to travel into training facilities.”

Bennie Pienaar, Gallager Security Australia’s Senior Training Engineer, adds, “With the successful creation of the pulse perimeter fence training in the augmented reality environment, we set a firm foundation for developing more AR training in Gallagher's other training verticals. The module is developed to experience practical pulse perimeter fence construction and configuration, while learning the Gallagher fundamentals required to build a pulse perimeter fence.”

Following on from Gallagher’s Virtual Classroom launched in 2023, Augmented Reality Training demonstrates Gallagher’s continued evolution in the training space, providing improved access and hands-on training to channel partners across the globe.

While Gallagher’s Virtual Classroom enables channel partners to access trainer-led courses remotely, reliance on trainer travel and kit movement proved a barrier to meeting the growing demand for perimeter training.
