Structured Cabling and Security systems training

Our Structured Cabling and Security Systems Training program is designed as an introductory course to equip students, particularly those with backgrounds in related trades but lacking experience in structured cabling and security systems, with the knowledge and skills necessary to secure meaningful employment in this rapidly growing industry.

As all participants are new to Structured Cabling and Security Systems, the program focuses on providing comprehensive training on installation standards, cable installation, termination practices, and theoretical concepts. Through a blend of theory presentations, worked examples, practical demonstrations, and hands-on exercises, students will learn to apply theoretical knowledge to real-world scenarios. Additionally, students will gain insight into basic electrical theory, electrical safety and codes, safe work practices, fire safety, and fundamental electrical principles, along with planning, designing, and installing CCTV, intrusion, and security alarm systems in our state-of-the-art work labs. Various practical projects conducted in a shop environment further enhance students’ skills in layout, assembly, installation, testing, troubleshooting, and repairing security alarm systems, fixtures, control devices, and related equipment in buildings and other structures.

The primary objective of this training is to equip inexperienced participants with adequate knowledge, confidence, and practical experience to pursue entry-level positions in the Data Cabling, Security Alarm, or Security Camera Industry and to facilitate their career advancement from that point forward.

Career Opportunities:

Our program serves as entry-level training for the high-demand tech industry, preparing graduates for employment with low-voltage security alarm contractors and the maintenance departments of various establishments. Opportunities for progression to supervisory positions or self-employment are also viable, with additional training and experience offered to further advance your career.
