ABLOY USA to Offer AIA-Approved CEU Course for Critical Infrastructure

Course topics will cover relevant codes and UL437 and ANSI definitions, plus advanced types of keys and mechanical locking systems.

IRVING, Texas — ABLOY USA and Hanleywood University have teamed up to offer a new online, on-demand course for architects and engineers who specify security locking solutions.

The American Institute of Architects (AIA)-approved course, Protecting Critical Infrastructure With an Electro-Mechanical Intelligent Key Locking System, offers a 1.0 Health, Safety & Wellness credit hour.

“Our previous CEU courses with AIA were well-received and we believe this one will too,” says Mark Scharff, ABLOY vertical market manager for architects and engineers. “Architects and engineers have requested this type of format to learn about the manufacturing process. For that reason we did not specifically structure a webinar format. From past experiences, we have learned there is nothing better for them than an in-person AIA CEU lunch-and-learn course that can be completed when it fits with their schedules.”

Scharff, who has 25 years of industry experience working with specifiers, developed the course outline. He says it centers on new technology advances with access control systems to protect critical infrastructure. ABLOY’s PROTEC2 CLIQ is one of the industry’s highest security solutions available, combining mechanical locking hardware and electrical interfaces with advanced benefits.

In addition to discussing relevant codes and UL437 and ANSI definitions, high points include discussion about the most advanced types of keys and mechanical locking systems available and current NERC and EPA mandates for critical infrastructure sectors. The course ends with a quiz.

“As we’ve done with other courses, participants in one hour will have an opportunity to learn about and better understand mechanical locking systems,” Scharff says. ”Going forward as organizations deal with COVID-19 pandemic ramifications, high security applications for critical infrastructure will be more important than ever.”
