Gate Installation Training

Gate Installer Dipolma

The Gate Installer (GID) course is designed to instuct  and assess technically skilled candidates in four key areas relating to the safe installation of equipment and controls for the automation of gates.

The GID incorporates a number of industry recognised courses.

Each element of training is carried out by a  qualified instructor with practical industry experience in their  field.

About Us

We have been offering training to the gate industry since 2013 with an aim to provide industry-wide training schemes as part of its drive to increase levels of safety in the powered automatic gates sector. With an increase in automated gate technology over recent years it is important that installers are able to show they understand the risks involved and ensure electric gates are installed correctly. This not only saves lives but will reduce the chances of legal proceedings for injuries or deaths that result from poorly installed electric gates. 

All training instruction is delivered by qualified individuals with real-life experience in their relevant field.

We believe that this approach gives each and every candidate attending training with us, the opportunity to expand their skill and knowledge base, regardless of the current level of experience.

Gate Installer Diploma Content

5 Day Course

Successful delegates of the Gate Installer Diploma will be able to:

  • To demonstrate a sound knowledge of the legal and practical safety requirements relating to the automation of gates.
  • To demonstrate the ability to risk assess and apply control measures, ensuring safe site working practices for the protection of both operatives and the public.
  • To demonstrate industry recognised MMA welding techniques with relation to the fitting of gate automation products to gates.
  • To demonstrate knowledge of EAWR and legislation surrounding work on electrical supplies.
  • To demonstrate the practical skills required to safely isolate electrical equipment and use of test equipment to ‘prove’ and certify.
  • To practically apply the key elements covered to an installation.
  • To test the installation, critique the results and comment on how any anomalies may be remedied
