SIA Launches New Training Initiative


The Security Industry Association (SIA) announces the launch of a new training initiative to meet the security industry’s need for timely and relevant training. SIA has developed a competency model to represent the skills needed to perform critical job roles in the security technology industry and has built a list of courses applicable to those roles.

“The mission of SIA Education is to raise the level of knowledge and professionalism in the security technology industry channel,” says Richard Chace, SIA executive director and CEO. “We are here to help those in security technology take on the challenge of developing highly skilled personnel. With manufacturer, distributor, integrator and dealer participation, the top performers in the industry provided the insight into what it takes to succeed in security technology.”

SIA’s curriculum map includes tools to:

  • Establish job descriptions based on needed skills
  • Identify the right people for critical jobs and get them trained quickly
  • Develop training and coaching programs
  • Build performance assessments for developing employees

  • Target training dollars
