IACET Authorised Providers are the only organisations approved to offer IACET Continuing Education Units (CEUs). The accreditation lasts five years and includes all programs offered or created during that time. Lenel is a part of UTC Building & Industrial Systems, a unit of United Technologies Corp. “Lenel’s education programs train thousands of technical security professionals each year in important installation, configuration and technical troubleshooting skills so that our partners and end users have the best possible experience with our products,” said Michael Navaroli, vice president, Lenel Global Services. “The IACET accreditation demonstrates our commitment to continual learning and high standards for all of our programs. We are very pleased to join such a prestigious organisation as well as an elite group of organisations that offer excellent continuing education and training programs.” “We are pleased to establish our relationship with Lenel Systems International as an Authorised Provider,” said Kristopher J. Newbauer, president of IACET and director of learning and organisation development at Rotary International in Evanston, Illinois. “Lenel joins nearly 650 organisations around the globe that have had their programs vetted by third-party experts in continuing education to ensure the highest possible standards are met.” Lenel offers technical training for authorised Value Added Resellers (VARs) and system users worldwide through its competency centers in Rochester, New York; Bradenton, Florida; Costa Mesa, California; Dartford, United Kingdom; Dubai, United Arab Emirates; and Singapore. Lenel also offers regional training courses for VARs as well as on-site training for system users. In addition to these classroom training options, Lenel offers a wide array of distance-learning programs to help those already trained to maintain their certification. Classes provide instruction across all aspects of Lenel’s portfolio, including OnGuard®, TruPortal™, Prism™, Picture Perfect and FCWnx systems. Lenel’s curriculum also offers exposure to specialised OnGuard applications. To achieve Authorised Provider accreditation, Lenel completed a rigorous application process, including a review by an IACET site visitor, and successfully demonstrated adherence to the ANSI/IACET 1-2007 standard addressing the design, development, administration and evaluation of its programs. In addition, Lenel is now linked to the IACET website and is recognised as offering the highest-quality continuing education and training programs.
