Access Control Fundamentals

(2-day program) As security concerns continue to heighten, many facilities are incorporating electronic access control into their physical access control systems. While mechanical keys will continue to be used for years to come, the convenience and often increased security provided by an access control system has become the norm on most of today’s projects. From small, simple, one door systems to complex systems handling thousands of doors and users, access control is based on some fundamental principles. This hands-on course will teach students the basics of access control systems, including the evolution of reader and card technologies, basic software, data collection, access levels, and time zones.

After participating in this session, attendees should be able to:

  1. Recognize and understand basic access control systems in order to provide the correct product solution for the application.

  2. Incorporate electromechanical hardware products, like electrified locksets, electrified panic and fire exit hardware, and automatic operators, into a system.

  3. Distinguish the difference between credential and reader types in order to supply the appropriate level of security for the owner.

  4. Explain the capabilities, features and benefits of both a cloud-based software system and an on-site software system.  

  5. Determine the appropriate questions to ask to provide a customized solution to meet the customer’s needs. 

Recommended prior learning: Electromechanical Hardware Fundamentals course or equivalent training.  

Automated end of class exams are delivered via DOITs Learning Management System at the end of the course, students must achieve a minimum 80% on the exam to pass the course.
