Paxton expands online training platform & launches free webinars

In response to the recent global pandemic, Paxton have expanded their online installer training platform and additionally, launched a series of informative webinars. The webinars are completely free to join, and the online training is now free to help installers while social restrictions are in place. Paxton’s approach is to remain supportive and productive, by providing their customers with latest product training, technical advice as well as support with upcoming projects for 2020 and beyond.

Paxton has been offering free installer training since 2005, they regularly see thousands of installers face to face at training sessions all over the world, with numbers climbing year on year. Until recently the international company was hosting hands-on workshops at Paxton offices, as well as out in the field. With many social restrictions currently in place across the globe, Paxton have decided that training must continue, and have provided free access to the learning portal to support installers and their end users.

Paxton’s training team has ensured the online courses are interactive and engaging. They include how-to videos, clear and concise text, as well as interactive exercises. Designed with Paxton’s core value of simplicity in mind, the online training will test, build confidence and knowledge of Paxton systems. The training comprises of bite-sized modules covering their access control and door entry ranges to give installers flexibility to learn.

Global Training Manager, Steve Woodbridge, said: “Our online training program continues to expand, providing more content than ever before to engage our customers in self-paced training sessions. It means the installer will benefit from our 35 years of industry experience from wherever they are, whenever they choose.”

The courses currently cover a range of products including:

  • Paxton10, their newest innovation, a single platform access & video system
  • Net2, software, an advanced PC based access control solution
  • Entry, door entry system that works standalone or alongside Paxton’s Net2 access control
  • PaxLock, their range of wireless access control in a door handle.

Andrew Speakman, Managing Director at AMS Electrical, Bolton has recently completed the online courses. Andrew said: “I particularly like the layout and bite size sections, as they are displayed clearly before you dive into a particular module meaning if I have 20 minutes to spare I know which module I can get the most out of”.

In addition to the online training portal, Paxton are currently running two brand new webinars. In the first two weeks of launching the webinars, the company saw over 900 installers attend.

Bruce Beany, a Paxton installer from Voltson explained: “I really enjoyed the webinar - lots of info and food for thought - all questions posed were answered fully. If possible, more webinars please”.

Both webinars take place twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 11.00am and 3.00pm.
