JTL is continuing to support the professional development of electricians with the launch of its latest, free bite-size digital course, ‘Introduction to Security Systems’.
Part of JTL’s Power Up series – an initiative designed to further support the building services engineering sector by offering free advice and educational resources – the course is intended to help both apprentices and qualified electricians identify best practices for the installation of security systems. As part of this course, the learners will gain a comprehensive understanding around the wiring and configuration of security systems, as well as the knowledge surrounding system types and corresponding components.
This course also explores the standards and definitions required for security systems, which will ensure efficient, safe conduct is upheld during installation. Designed to take a minimum of 30 minutes to complete, the course has been produced to facilitate the learner’s journey towards Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and is intended to increase workplace competency.
Liam Sammon, director of learning and innovation at JTL, says: “As a charity geared towards helping electricians grow their skill-set, we are delighted to launch our latest, free, bite-size course on security systems. The course is highly practical and applicable and works well alongside additional JTL courses that may be of interest, such as our ‘Smart Homes’ and ‘Inspection and Testing’ courses.
“At JTL, we are committed to helping both learners and trade professionals gain workplace competency and practical knowledge which will assist them in their professional development as electricians. The flexible, online delivery of the course is intended to make this course as accessible to as wide a group of people as possible, by allowing them to participate whenever and wherever is best for them. This, along with the other courses, can be accessed via mobile, tablet or desktop, meaning that each course can be completed at their own pace and at a time that suits them.”
The Introduction to Security Systems bite-size digital course is now available on JTL’s new online learning portal.
