It’s a new year, and the online training opportunities continue! 

The Allegion 101 series begins anew – starting tomorrow!  This series is for people who are new to the industry, new to the Allegion family of brands, or just want to learn more about hardware (all times are Eastern).  Do you know anyone who could benefit from this training?

  • 1:00pm – 2:00pm – Allegion 101 – Introduction to Door Hardware: Standards, Codes, and General Information
    • In this introductory session, learn about the primary building standards and codes applicable to architectural hardware in the United States. You will also learn how to ‘hand’ openings. And, you’ll be on a path to learning the language of doors and hardware.
  • 3:00pm – 4:30pm – Allegion 101 – The Door & Frame: Republic
    • In this session, learn about the world of Republic hollow metal doors and frames. We’ll address such elements as frame profiles, drywall frames, masonry frames, and the anchors used in their installation. Learn about door construction and hardware reinforcements. Get familiar with common Republic model numbers/nomenclature so you can make sense of documents (e.g., order acknowledgements, the price book, etc.) and literature (e.g., catalog pages, tech data manuals, etc.). Leon Starks, our Steelcraft and Republic Training Manager, will be your instructor.

The complete list of classes in the Allegion 101 series is here and you can register using the links on the Allegion Virtual Events Calendar. If you miss a class, the recordings are on the Event Board of the Allegion Training Page.


On Wednesday, our national trainers continue the Webinar Wednesday series, with the following classes scheduled:

  • 10:00am – 11:00am – Code Changes Affecting Classroom Doors
    • The 2018 editions of the International Building Code, International Fire Code, and NFPA 101 – Life Safety Code, all include changes specific to classroom doors. A Tentative Interim Amendment was approved in 2019 which further modifies the 2018 edition of NFPA 101. This session will cover the requirements of these model codes as they apply to classroom doors, including how these changes and some states’ legislation impact the types of security devices allowed on classroom doors. Jeff Tock, our End User Training Manager, will lead this session.
  • 12:00pm – 1:00pm – Electrified Hardware: Wiring Choices
    • Selecting the correct wire for electromechanical locking devices and electronic access control systems is critical for the proper operation of those devices and systems. If terms such as volts, amps, plenum-rated, and shielded leave you scratching your head, this webinar is for you. Allegion’s senior product trainer, Gordon Malczewski, will show you how to read labels on various types of cables and help you select the proper cable based on factors such as operating voltage, current rating, wire lengths, and the installation environment.
  • 2:00pm – 3:00pm – Steelcraft Door & 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 dry wall frames, including some application and installation considerations. Leon Starks, Steelcraft Training Manager, will lead this session.
  • 4:00pm – 5:00pm – 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.
