Axis Communications, the global market leader network video, has been selected to partner with the UK Chapter of ASIS International, the world’s largest organisation for security professionals, to provide its members with training and information.

This unique collaboration will be based around the existing ASIS CPE (continued professional education) scheme and will see Axis attending a number of UK ASIS events throughout the year, offering seminars and updates on cutting edge network video technologies.

Commenting on the partnership, Mike Hurst, vice chairman – strategy of the UK Chapter of ASIS International, said: “We are always looking for new and innovative ways to offer our members access to training and information which ensures that we continue to promote excellence and leadership in the security management profession.

“By partnering with Axis Communications, we hope to give those who attend our events an excellent opportunity to keep up-to-date with all the latest developments and technology in network video.”

Steven Kenny, business development manager for the architecture and engineering programme at Axis Communications, added: “Axis has long since recognised that offering continual professional training and education is a vital to ensure that our industry can continue to benefit from the many technological innovations in the market.

“Through our work with such prestigious organisations like ASIS in the UK we can offer them a wide-range of training, including the highly successful Axis Certification Program, and ensure that the knowledge and experience of its members is as current as it should be.”

Both Axis and ASIS have always shown a commitment to providing the highest quality training and education to security professionals. ASIS offers a range of dynamic seminar and training days throughout the year both nationally and internationally and serves as an active resource for information on various security and management skills.

Axis Communications’ Academy has helped security professionals boost their businesses by giving the tools and information they need. It also offers a full calendar of training courses, including the Axis Certification Program, which sets an industry standard by offering system designers and technical sales staff the first professional network video certification to validate IP video expertise.
