Access Control Technician

This course provides the basic knowledge of multiple access control platforms, such as standalone, distributed processing and host. You will learn the basic concepts, technologies and definitions used in the industry. By the end of the first week you will understand the hardware associated with the installation of an access control system, as well as, basic electricity. With practical exercise we will explore the beginning stages of building a system.

The hands-on portion of the class, taught in a real world lab, will provide the student with the necessary skills to become a technician. The students will complete a site survey of their door, install hardware, wire, troubleshoot and program multiple access control systems. By the end of the course, the student will have installed a complete system.

Course Overview

There’s a basic overview of standalone access control hardware (Schlage CO-100, Alarm Lock T-2) installation, program for single door systems; single door wired systems (Keri Intelli-Prox, Altronix Boards, IEI Door-Gard) as well as multi-door wired system (Keri NXT-2 door with Mercury).

Time is spent with basic demos of mechanical hardware, electrified hardware (hinges, locks, exit devices, electric strikes, keypads, scanners. We pivot to discussing AC and DC circuits, relays, switches, etc. and have the class start wiring up a basic application with batteries, power supplies – using locks, mags or strikes. We review tools required in the field, the wire you pull based on the building and code compliance.

You will spend time in the door lab pulling wire from your power supplies to the door to install mag locks, keypads, electric strikes. You are instructed how to properly prep the doors in the field for raceways. They can choose to run concealed connections or surface applied connections.

We review authentication formats – HID, Mifare, Smart Card, Weigand, RFID, Ekeys, and simple prox systems. We are learning concepts or a general overview of stand-alone vs online/offline access control systems.
