While not a requirement, we recommend technicians take our basic electronics and construction courses before beginning this course for a better all-around technical understanding of this material.

Momentum Security Training is disrupting the status quo in the physical security industry by providing context-based education that empowers our students to deliver high-quality solutions.

Legacy training has been either manufacturer taught, or peer taught each of which has its own limitations. Today, security training consists of teaching someone how to do something, we are empowering our students to learn WHY it works so that no matter the situation or product there is a deeper understanding of the technology and the theory behind it.
