Engineers from the southern region get together for valuable training.

Engineers from the southern region get together for valuable training.

Last week saw the southern based engineers from Astra Security get together for valuable IP training, which took place at the Hanwha Head Office site in Surrey.


12 engineers based in the south region spent the day following the Hanwha Syllabus which specifically looked at the Samsung Q Series camera range, and associated NVR set up. Valuable technical tips were explored and discussed.

Engineer Resource Manager for Astra Security, Barry Granger said ‘We place great importance on meeting and auditing our engineers’ work. This falls in line with our NSI Gold accreditation and allows the opportunity to review our levels of service. It’s great to get everyone together for training such as this’.

Astra Security are NSI Gold certified. This level holds the highest perceived value both across the industry, as well as by the Police, Fire and Rescue Services and Insurers. They are subject to independent regular audits by NSI to monitor compliance to these standards.

Paul Beet, Managing Director at Astra Security added ‘It’s an important element to make sure training such as this takes place regularly. Taking time out of a busy working schedule is always a challenge, but it’s an essential part of what we do. Getting the engineers together from time to time is invaluable. There are shared learnings, best practice, top tips, and the additional opportunity of being together and learning at the same time. I’d like to thank Hanwha for hosting the training session today’.

This training is part of a wider training programme and follows on from a session which took place earlier in the year for engineers based in the northern region.
