Students participating in one of Tavcom Training’s Alarm Systems courses will be able to gain practical hands-on experience of alarm handling within a Control Room environment thanks to equipment donated by WebWayOne.
The equipment installed in the Control Room operators’ testing area at Tavcom’s Training Centre in Bishops Waltham includes Communicator Pro and Mini devices, as well as WebWayWorld web access in order for students to familiarise themselves with the commissioning and support of IP and 2G/3G communication.
Six WebWay communicators are fully operational and signalling to test accounts at Southern Monitoring’s Alarm Receiving Centre in Waterlooville, with remote access via MASWeb to view alarm delivery in real time.
The communicators are serially connected to Honeywell Galaxy and Texecom Intruder panels and can take advantage of SIA3 signalling which includes the support of remote servicing and diagnostics.
Putting theory into practice
“As the leading provider of security systems training, we are always looking to use the latest available technology to enhance the effectiveness of our training courses by offering students opportunities to immediately put theory into practice,” said Paul Tennent, managing director of Tavcom Training. “We’re therefore very grateful to WebWayOne for its support in providing ATS equipment. We will certainly be able to put it to good use in all of our Alarm Systems-related training courses which we will be conducting during 2015.”
Tavcom currently offers over 70 regularly scheduled training courses ranging from one-day seminars to five-day, fully-residential programmes. The courses are designed to meet the training requirements of security professionals at all levels, from foundation courses for those with little or no previous experience through to highly advanced programmes for Control Room supervisors, security managers and company executives.
The wide range of technical and non-technical courses covers all security systems-related fields including security management, Control Room operations, system planning and project management, structured cabling, disaster recovery and covert CCTV.
