I think online learning will play a greater role for students of all ages going forward.  In addition to my own learning/teaching, I have a college student, a high school freshman, and an 8th-grader who have been taking classes online since March.  While I hope that they can return to the classroom soon (please!!), we have all learned a lot about teaching and learning when we’re not in the same room together. 

Allegion will continue to offer online training, with the following classes scheduled for this week.

July 7th – Webinar Wednesday Live Classes (all times EST) – Click HERE to register for any of the webinars below.


10-11:00am: Low-Energy Automatic Operator Fundamentals

Automatic operators can help facilities and people with accessibility issues and touchless access preferences, but selecting the correct operator can be confusing. Is it permissible to use a motion detector to activate the door? Does a wave to activate actuator meet the Knowing Act requirements of the ANSI standards? Join us as we explore the differences between Low Energy automatic operators and Full Power (High Energy) automatic operators. Learn what the standards require for proper speed adjustments and opening force requirements for doors with automatic operators. Find out which LCN operators provide the most adjustability to meet building owner needs.

Jeff Tock, AHC and Regional Training Manager for Allegion, will guide you through the exercise of choosing the operator that can best meet your needs.


12pm-1pm: Steelcraft Door and Frame Construction and Application

New to hollow metal doors & frames? Join us to learn about Steelcraft door types, such as full flush, steel stiffened, temperature rise, and stile and rail doors. You will also learn the difference between masonry and drywall frames, including some application and installation considerations.

Leon Starks, Steelcraft Training Manager, will lead this session.


2-3pm: Schlage and Von Duprin Power Supplies

Are you responsible for selecting, ordering, or advising others on the right power supply for electrified openings? In this session, learn about the Schlage and Von Duprin power supplies and when to use each. You will also become familiar with the seven different option boards and the appropriate applications for those boards.

Shawn Mahoney, our Von Duprin Training Manager, will lead this session.


4-5pm: Electrified Hardware for Access Control Systems and Security

Electrified and electronic hardware can enhance the security and safety of a facility if the hardware selections are made with the facility’s needs in mind. During this session, we’ll talk about the importance of asking questions of your clients to determine how they need openings to function given their access control and security requirements. We’ll have time to discuss some electrified and electronic hardware components commonly in use today and that can grow/adapt as your clients’ needs change.

John Dalrymple, our Electronics Training Manager, will lead this session.
