Why training is so important for Astra Security

Why training is so important for Astra Security

Engineers get together for one-day training course


Earlier this week, engineers from Astra Security got together for a one-day training course hosted by Norbain.

The course followed a Hanwha training syllabus which specifically looked at the Samsung Q Series camera range and associated NVR set up.  Valuable technical tips were explored,  such as the inclusion of the use of a wi-fi dongle which will allow engineers to work at the camera end using an app and therefore reduce any downtime.

Engineer Resource Manager at Astra Security, Barry Granger said 'Astra place great importance in meeting with and auditing our engineers work.  This falls in line with our NSI Gold standing and allows the opportunity to review levels of service.'Barry went on to say,  ‘It's great getting 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 so important to ensure 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 Norbain for hosting the training day.’

Astra Security are specialists in providing bespoke security solutions.  They design, supply, install and maintain integrated security systems – this includes CCTV, remote monitoring access control and more.
