SIA Adds New Features to Central Station Course


The Security Industry Association (SIA) has added new features to its Central Station Operator/Instructor Training (CST) program beginning with its August class in Alexandria, Va.

The CST course will include expanded instruction on ETL certification, how to read formats with an explanation of the various languages, alternate signal delivery to include IP and GSM, and other topics.

“As one of the only central station training programs to offer instruction in the classroom, not online, the CST course already provided a substantive learning experience that was enhanced by the invaluable exchange between student and trainer,” says SIA Director of Education Arminda Valles-Hall. “These additions make a great product even better.”

The five-day CST course provides information about the entire process of training a central station operator from experienced instructors. It identifies the necessary elements of an in-house training program and teaches techniques for evaluating progress and working with students to improve their performance.

Upon completion of the course, the graduate becomes both a SIA-certified operator and a SIA-certified trainer who is authorized to certify his or her own operators.
