BFT Automation Ramps up Training

BFT Automation has boosted its training provision, including support for installers of its anti-terrorism bollards.

Held at BFT’s offices in Swindon or Stockport, training is tailored to the needs of individual specifying companies and their installation teams. Courses are delivered by BFT’s technical staff, who have years of training and experience in working with its solutions.

Richard Winstanley, UK Sales Manager at BFT Automation said:

“We don’t run standardised training as we recognise that everyone’s requirements are different, this means that individuals will only receive training that’s relevant to them – whether they’re an apprentice or an installer with many years of experience.”

Training typically encompasses both theoretical and practical learning, using working test models for hands-on practice.

Focus on HVM

As BFT continues to grow its presence in the hostile vehicle mitigation (HVM) sector, it offers a comprehensive training programme for installers of its anti-terrorism bollards. This includes training on setting up solutions from its X-PASS range of automated bollards, plus the Perseo control panel setting and parameters.

Richard added:

“With the Protect Duty Bill becoming closer to legislation, more and more organisations are likely to be considering HVM as part of their security plans. 

“Anti-terrorism bollards are often the simplest and most versatile solution, but for installers who are new to these products, it’s often useful to have a level of support that goes beyond the details included in a manual. 

“As all our training sessions are conducted in small groups, people get the individual attention they need, as well as the opportunity to have open discussions and ask questions.”

Each bollard within BFT’s X-PASS range has its own self-contained hydraulic pump unit, allowing it to be raised or lowered with just one command, making them an ideal choice for settings where there’s a need for flexibility to accommodate temporary changes in traffic flow or events. 

The bollards are equipped with the option of the fail-secure system, meaning that in the event of a power failure, they remain raised, preventing unauthorised access. 

Range of topics

Other topics covered by BFT include training on gate automation, bollards, barriers, automatic doors, parking systems and more, with a focus on safety at every step of the way.

Examples of specific courses include calibrating motors, which focuses on the correct way to set up motors from underground to overground, plus wiring motors to a gate system. 

Advanced training on programming control panels goes into detail on the vast amount of parameter and logic features available on the control board and capabilities for a gate system – allowing a deeper understanding of the best way to set up each system for its purpose.

Richard said:

“The aim is for installers to leave with the knowledge and hands-on experience necessary to provide a quick and safe installation every time,” 

As well as its training provision, BFT offers ongoing maintenance support for all its products.
