There are generally three levels of knowledge that security and fire field personnel exhibit in the form of assumed titles:
From the time that someone enters the field knowing very little or nothing about this business, the aim of all concerned above them is to educate them in the intricacies of the post to which they were employed. For the Wire Puller, the Installer is striving to teach them which cable to pull for what device:
4-conductor, 22 – 18 AWG cable for motions
6-condctor, 18 AWG cable for card readers
6-conductor, 18 AWG cable for zoned smoke detectors
The Installers on each crew also strive to teach their more more promising Wire Pullers where and how to level and mount each device as well as how to install the main alarm control panel. And where programming is done on site, the task eventually turns to the art of programming all the intricate data into each location in programming.
It’s usually the Operations Manager that makes the decision as to which Wire Puller to move from one level to the other in the hopes of one day giving that man or woman their own van and installation crew. This is necessary because the same Ops Mgr is working to move his/her installation foremen upwards into the position of a seasoned, knowledgeable Service Technician.
On a personal note, after decades of managing Wire Pullers, Installers, and Technicians, I have to say that the best Techs that I’ve had, had some exposure to training in the electronics field. I, myself, became an Associate Electronics Engineer, trained for the manufacturing world early on. I was able to use that training to my advantage as an Installer and Service Technician right from the start as I worked in the field for 15 years before becoming a full-time trade journalist and later an Operations Manager.
One way to derive an education for your technical staff without paying an arm and a leg is to use an educational portal called Alison (http://bit.ly/32Gn8I1). The wonderful thing about this opportunity is that it’s free as each student can monitor the course. If they pass it, that’s when you can invest in a Certificate of Education for that specific student.
The value to you, as a manager, as an owner, is that you can use that ultimate goal (your willingness to purchase the Certificate) as an incentive for them to study on their own time, their own dime. Those who do not pass a course will not receive a Certificate, but the main benefit is that they walk away with some of what they studied, which can only help them on the job.
The current trend in tech, no matter what the venue, is Artificial Intelligence (AI) | #TpromoCom #ArtificialIntelligence #AI #HealthCare | Fashionable and trendy, the use of AI in society is looked upon as progressive and modern, not to mention smart and intelligent. No matter what the facts may be–whether AI’s the savior or the destroyer of mankind–everyone wants it, and they want it now.
One of the reasons why corporations and governments across the globe are sure to continue their efforts to develop AI is the fact that this tech is capable of reading, sorting, assessing, analyzing, and logically, systematically reporting on huge quantities of data–commonly called Big Data.
But, will corporations and governments stop with Big Data? Let me take a guess… “No!” and let me tell you why, because AI is capable of so much more.

Can Artificial Intelligence Cure What Ails The Healthcare Industry? | Personal healthcare experiences often spark pioneering cures, and Pinaki Dasgupta, CEO of Hindsait, is no exception. After two immediate family members weathered serious health issues, Dasgupta brought his digital expertise in manufacturing to the healthcare industry. Click Here!
Stanford-led snapshot of artificial intelligence reveals challenges | A periodic review of the artificial intelligence industry revealed the potential pitfalls of outsourcing our problems for technology to solve rather than addressing the causes, and of allowing outdated predictive modeling to go unchecked. As part of Stanford’s ongoing 100-year study on artificial intelligence, known as the AI100, two workshops recently considered the issues of care technologies and predictive modeling to inform the future development of AI technologies.

Top Artificial Intelligence (AI) Predictions For 2020 From IDC and Forrester | IDC and Forrester issued recently their predictions for artificial intelligence (AI) in 2020 and beyond. While external “market events” may make companies cautious about AI, says Forrester, “courageous ones” will continue to invest and expand the initial “timid” steps they took in 2019. Click Here!
Can Artificial Intelligence Learn to Learn? | As businesses integrate Artificial Intelligence into their systems, technology professionals are looking at a new frontier of AI innovation. This is in the area of Meta-Learning. Meta-Learning is simply learning to learn. We humans have the unique ability to learn from any situation or surrounding. We adapt our learning. We can figure out how we can learn. To acquire this kind of flexibility in learning, AI needs Artificial General Intelligence. Click Here!
Artificial Intelligence: Humans could one day marry robots and ’emotionally’ bond with AI | PEOPLE will increasingly bond with artificial intelligence (AI) in the coming years and give the green light to marriage between man and machine, a philosopher has spectacularly claimed. The bizarre prediction was made by Dr Maciej Musiał from the University of Adam Mickiewicz in Poznan, Poland. Click Here!

Active Shooter Gunshot Detection Guide: When Seconds Count | #TpromoCom #GunShot #Shooter #Police | Early detection can trigger a host of responses including alerting occupants to the location where shots were fired while triggering building alarms.
Over the past decade, the number of active shooter incidents in the United States has grown exponentially. According to fbi.gov, there were 214 fatalities from active shooters in 2016, which jumped to 729 just one year later. Most of these shootings (62.8%) occurred in businesses and schools.
However, the reality is active shooter incidents can happen anywhere at any time – meaning no place is immune to an active shooter event. While it is impossible to prevent every active shooter event from occurring, new technology is helping first responders and law enforcement mitigate the threat faster to help reduce the number of casualties.

Start The Journey To Unlock Building Automation Data | #TpromoCom #Automation #Webinar #BuildingAutomation | Finding value locked away in building automation systems is not a destination, but a journey. Each facility has its own unique challenges and opportunities – while we start projects to unlock that value, the data itself may point us in a new direction.
Facilities needs include energy savings, operational awareness, resilience, reliability or some combination of these objectives. How do we find a solution across these objectives and across the silos of our organization to light up the data we already have before we start to add more?
Join us for this free webinar as we present our journey through the operations at the San Leandro Tech Campus as well as value found on other journeys including NASA, Eli Lilly, University of Maryland, and University of California at Davis.
