HIKVISION Australia has donated 5 IP video systems including a wide range of cameras and NVRs, to Melbourne-based Complex Training Academy.

According Hikvision’s Cliff Simons, Complex Training Academy reached out to Hikvision as they had some experience with Hikvision as a product and wanted to use it as a benchmark in the practical component of a CCTV course that they run.

“With the advancement of technology available in the security market, the need has arisen for training in correct installation and commissioning of security systems,” Simons said. “Security integrators are seeing the value of good training and education in the basics of security. This gives a head start to these graduates who would otherwise come to work without a knowledge of how to even install cable.”

Simons said there was a need for manufacturers to get serious when it comes to supporting training.
“If you can work with young technicians as they embark on their careers in the industry, you will end up with professionals who thoroughly know and understand how products work,” he said. “Success in the electronic security industry is all about product knowledge – the best technicians have deep familiarity with every aspect of the solutions they install and maintain.” ♦
