Alarm Installation Course

Course Outline

This training course will take a trainee Technician or Electrician through the technical requirements that are needed to install a modern electronic security system in a domestic or small commercial application.

The course content was developed to help the technician to understand the concept of electronic security through various stages from design through to final handover.
