Upgrading from Mechanical to Electrified Hardware - Scenarios

 

This course will allow you to test your knowledge of common access controlled openings with project scenarios, challenges, and ultimately recommending the best possible hardware solution. This interactive, scenario-based session will require you to draw from your knowledge of the key site survey fundamentals when selecting electrified hardware, like existing hardware, the door's function, the opening's surroundings, and, of course, codes. Questions will be posed by facilitators for each scenario to encourage critical thinking and problem solving. This class is eligible for 1 credit hour: attendees may receive a certificate of completion (as requested).
