Training is back in person! The Training team at Open Options hit the road running with an on-site training in Casper, Wyoming recently. It marked the restart of in-person training sessions offered by our company in the aftermath of the lifting of stay-at-home orders. Classes are also now being offered at our Open Options headquarters in Texas. As the economy opens, it’s back to business -- helping you drive your business or improve your operation through training.
“After the COVID-19 stay-at-home orders, everyone was excited to come together to learn about DNA Fusion,” said Sherinda Barrow, Director of Education Services at Open Options “It was great to connect with our customers in person at this regional training class. We enjoyed seeing everyone’s face in class.”
This regional training class had seven dealer technicians and a system user from the area in attendance. The students came from various backgrounds; many of whom had little to no experience with access control. The first part of the class covered what they see in the field, including wiring of door status monitors, request-to-exit devices and readers, including OSDP and Wiegand technologies. The remainder of the class involved hands-on training on DNA Fusion. The class wrapped up with discussing project-specific topics such as an upcoming installation with an integration to the Allegion NDE lockset as well as troubleshooting scenarios.
One student said, “Thank you for your patience. I did not have a clue on Tuesday but I learned so much from this class. You are an amazing trainer.”
Another student commented that the “class provided me wonderful solutions for my customers. Best training ever!”
The schedule of training classes is posted on the Open Options website and on the company’s social media channels, and the Training department is currently accepting requests to schedule new classes in different regions. “It’s exciting to be conducting in-person training again, and we’re looking forward to the upcoming classes in the coming weeks,” added Sherinda.
However, if you live in a state where restrictions on in-person gatherings are still in place, please contact us at Open Options for alternative, online training to support you.
