In-Person Training Workshops

Two-Day Hands-On Workshops
These workshops provide training to install, operate and maintain DoorKing access control and vehicular gate operating products. All of our training workshops include updates on UL 325, ASTM F2200 and UL 294 standards as they apply to DoorKing products so that installers and system designers are up to date on current industry safety standards and requirements. Two day training workshops begin promptly at 7:30 AM and continue to approximately 4:00 PM each day (unless otherwise), so be prepared for two full days of training.  Workshop class size is limited to 60 persons and they do fill quickly, so register at your earliest convenience.  Prior registration is required - walk-ins are not allowed.  Registration fee is $50.00 per person, which includes breakfast and lunch each day.
