This course is directed toward a variety of professional disciplines that typically make up an electronic security design team, including: physical security specialists, anti-terrorism and force protection officers, engineers, technicians, planners, and project managers. Each student is given the basic knowledge and skills necessary to contribute to an ESS design effort.

Students are provided a solid foundation in all aspects of ESS technology and design. Instructors with extensive ESS qualifications and experience explain the basic theory, operation, and application of all ESS components--including intrusion detection systems (IDS), access control systems (ACS), Video Systems, data transmission systems and illumination sources. Requirements and techniques for effective system integration using robust communications, commmand, and control (C3) infrastructure are emphasized. After completing the course, students should be proficient at conducting an ESS site survey, developing an ESS concept design, and performing quality assurance (QA) inspections and systems acceptance testing during the ESS installation phase. Throughout the course students are encouraged to actively participate by asking questions, analyzing case studies, and solving practical design problems.

Grade: GS-07 (or Military E-5) or higher involved with using, planning, designing, or managing electronic security systems.
