GJD launches new technical training facility for CPD Training

Monday 19 December 2022 -

GJD, an Ava Group company, has today announced the opening of its new training facilities at its head office in Heywood, Greater Manchester. GJD will use the new facilities to deliver it’s CPD certified perimeter detection and LED illumination course to security installers and custom integrators, as well as other training courses that the company provides.


Interactive training for Security Installers

The new training facility is a modern and “hands-on” learning environment. It provides a comfortable space for security installers to learn all about the latest technology. The room features working product display boards, so attendees can get a true understanding of the key features and learn about the value of putting perimeter protection first.


Installers will be able to dial into the network and explore the programmable features of IP detectors and IP LED illuminators. They will learn how to integrate GJD’s products with third party security and home automation systems, such as Hikvision, Milestone, Dahua, LILIN, Control4, Crestron and RTI. Attendees will also be able to see our innovative laser detectors, which are setup and working for live product demonstrations, training, and testing.


CPD Approved Training – essential for ISO/accredited security installers

The CPD training will equip security installers with the confidence, skillset and understanding needed to become an expert GJD security installer. The course is beneficial for all professional security installers who would like installation tips, technical support, and training on the latest technology. We tailor the course, so it is suitable for small businesses who regularly complete residential installations, as well as large companies who focus on high-end projects.


Gary Williams, GJD’s Technical Support Manager commented: “We are very proud to announce the launch of our new training facilities. GJD has always provided professional installers with outstanding technical support. However, the investment in our new state of the art training facility means we will be able to provide installers with practical training sessions on a regular basis”.
