The security industry is continuously changing in terms of new trends, technologies, services and products. Focused, targeted training is the most effective method of addressing the required needs of one’s business in the security trade.

Electronic security system installers will find having a certificate that shows you to be a certified installer to be beneficiary as your clients will have more faith that you are competent in your profession and thus increase the possibility of obtaining their business.

For people that want to enter the world of electronic security, educating yourself is a vital first step and cannot be skipped. You will require guidance and expertise in your journey to become an expert installer of CCTV cameras and access control systems as well as support once you start working on sites.

SCW Training Academy has numerous training courses available that focus on specific product areas and the correct installation and application thereof. Furthermore, it is geared to equip the student with the theoretical background as well as practical skills – from introductory to specialised level – to sell and maintain products and solutions across a vast spectrum. The academy provides technical support to the students once they have completed their training, and might require some assistance with their first installation on site.
