With over 20 years in manufacturing security equipment, from CCTV to IT technology, Hikvision has a wealth of experience in the security sector. The best part is that the company is keen to share its knowledge and improve industry standards by offering several Hikvision accredited professional video security courses.
All courses are taught at the Hikvision Academy Training Centres and are free to attend. Although it’s open to all, Hikvision recommends a minimum of 12 months of experience within the security industry before joining its courses.
There are a wide variety of Hikvision courses available. They are specifically designed as easy-to-understand courses to hands-on sessions that equip trainees with the skills they need to implement and commission Hikvision security systems successfully.
Whether you’re new to Hikvision solutions and want to learn about security installation or want to learn how to install and configure more complex systems, Hikvision Academy has what you’re looking for.
There are purpose-built training centres in London, Manchester, and Glasgow, as well as online training.
Coming up to Glasgow on September 8th is the Hikvision Certified Security Associate (HCSA) – CCTV training, and on September 9th, the Hikvision VMS (HikCentral). There are more courses available, please check here.
As a result of the centralisation of the HikCentral platform, users can achieve extensive integration and deliver powerful solutions. HikCentral is expandable and scalable, so your security capability can be maximised for years to come. Besides, you can benefit from a host of security and business features, for example, ANPR/Access Control/People Counting/Heat Mapping, as well as many others.
Providing project-specific solutions requires additional functions and services from collaborative partners. This is why Hikvision’s video management platform is designed to be Central, Collaborative, and Intelligent.
