AUSTRALIA – Award-winning global security manufacturer, Gallagher Security, is proud to announce the latest addition to their innovative suite of training solutions, Augmented Reality Training.

Launching in Australia today, Gallagher demonstrates their continued commitment to innovation and improving access to security training opportunities.

Partnering with Altoura, a leader in immersive training platforms, Gallagher's first Augmented Reality training environment is the Perimeter Fence Installer Course, which combines cutting-edge technology with Gallagher’s leading perimeter security solutions.

Gallagher Security Australia, Training Solutions Engineer, Kirk Jarvis says, “Our foray into learning through an Augmented Reality environment will revolutionize how our Channel Partners interact with our pulsed perimeter product. We will be taking them on an immersive adventure into all things Pulsed Perimeter, from the comfort of their office or home. The significant benefits to our Channel Partners include real-time guidance, reduced downtime, while negating the need to travel into training facilities.”

Bennie Pienaar, Gallager Security Australia, Senior Training Engineer adds, “With the successful creation of the Pulse Perimeter Fence training in the Augmented Reality environment, we set a firm foundation for developing more AR training in Gallagher's other training verticals. The module is developed to experience practical Pulse Perimeter fence construction and configuration, while learning the Gallagher fundamentals required to build a Pulse Perimeter fence.”

Following on from Gallagher’s Virtual Classroom launched in 2023, Augmented Reality Training demonstrates Gallagher’s continued evolution in the training space, providing improved access and hands-on training to their Channel Partners across the globe.

Work began in mid-2023 with the Gallagher training team identifying the Perimeter course as the first to be developed. While Gallagher’s Virtual Classroom enabled Channel Partners to access trainer-led courses remotely, reliance on trainer travel and kit movement proved a barrier in meeting the growing demand for perimeter training.

Gallagher Security’s Executive Vice President for Asia Pacific and India, Middle East, and Africa (APAC and IMEA), Craig Schutte says “Over the past, almost two years, 1700 APAC and IMEA Channel Partners have been certified in access courses, while a smaller percentage of technicians have received perimeter product certification due to the reliance on providing physical equipment for training. We’re committed to improving those numbers and offering greater support and training opportunities for our Channel Partners. The Augmented Reality Perimeter Fence Installer Course will help us do that.”

“The focus of our training team is to continue delivering world class training and workplace development opportunities that empower our Channel Partners and End Users, regardless of where they are located. Augmented Reality training will create increased opportunities for our Channel Partners and allow us to offer the same convenience as online and virtual classroom training while creating a more immersive and interactive learning experience,” adds Craig.

Bookings are now open for the Augmented Reality Training – Perimeter Fence Installer Course across Australia, with further rollout throughout APAC and IMEA to follow.
