HSL Training Offers Comprehensive Gate Automation Skills package

The new course from HSL Training – a five-day Gate Installer Diploma – is aimed at both current gate installers wishing to improve their skills and knowledge, and those wanting to join the sector.
Over recent years, and unfortunately only after a number of tragic incidents involving automatic gates, great progress toward better safety has now been made.
The DHF, gate automation manufacturers, suppliers, gate fabricators and installers have all come together to increase
awareness of the need for safer systems, and agree (mostly) on a set of best working practices and methods for
developing safer systems by design.
Jonathan, the founder of HSL Training, a JIB-approved electrician, and NICEIC-registered qualified supervisor, understands the importance of having the right training – and the challenge of keeping up with ever changing regulations to remain qualified, or at least competent – are all too familiar.
This is why at HSL Training we believe the availability of quality gate automation installation training, which combines
theory and practice, is crucial.
The aim of the Gate Installer Diploma (GID) is to instruct technically-skilled candidates in key areas of the gate automation installation process.

The syllabus covers many of the skills necessary to achieve the Door & Gate Systems NVQ Level 2.

We are working with the NVQ assessors involved in delivering the Door & Gate Systems NVQ Level 2.  For those requiring a permanent ‘skilled’ blue CSCS card, we are able to assess them over the course, and if required, advise on further training – increasing the likelihood of reaching the standard necessary to get the NVQ.

Qualified individuals with real life experience in their relevant field deliver each element of instruction over the five-day GID course. This approach gives every candidate on the course, regardless of current experience level, the opportunity to expand their skills and knowledge base.
