Abloy UK launches new RIBA approved CPD: Wireless Access Control

Abloy UK, a leading provider of security and access control solutions, has announced the launch of a new RIBA approved CPD training programme focussed on wireless access control.


This initiative aims to provide architects and building professionals with comprehensive knowledge and insights into the latest advancements in security technology.


The comprehensive CPD training programme addresses the increasing demand for wireless access control solutions. Drawing insights from the latest industry research, including the annual Wireless Access Control Report[1], the course explores the benefits and applications of wireless technology in modern security infrastructure.


The launch of this RIBA approved CPD is the latest addition to courses offered by Abloy’s renowned Academy, demonstrating its commitment to empowering professionals with the tools and knowledge needed to navigate the evolving landscape of security solutions effectively.


Some key learning outcomes that attendees can take from this course include an overview of wireless locking basic principles and architecture, and how having an integrated online system offers a multitude of benefits.


For example, wireless access control is a credible, cost-effective, and compliant alternative to a wired solution, and can help meet environmental objectives. It can also be the answer for tricky to wire doors, and can integrate seamlessly into current access solutions.

Other key topics include how these solutions can reduce installation time and costs, and how they positively impact the working environment, as well as streamlining operations.


The training also examines the integration of wireless technology into existing access solutions and organisational systems, illustrating compatibility with current infrastructure and creating safer and more efficient environments.


The CPD offers examples for sector specific applications too, including healthcare, education, commercial environments, offices and corporate headquarters, and entertainment and sports arenas.


Jason Boyce, Commercial Project Manager at Abloy UK, said: “When wireless locking first came to the market as an alternative, there was a nervousness that suggesting wireless as a credible replacement would upset the industry. Experience has taught us that wireless is not only a credible alternative but, in many cases, a better solution.”


“This course is not just about learning new skills; it’s about adapting to evolving trends, refining existing expertise, and ultimately, ensuring that professionals are equipped to tackle the challenges of wireless access control specification with confidence.”


“This brand-new CPD demonstrates our commitment to providing training to educate and inform on standards, legislation, best practice, and developing digital technology.”
