The Institute of Technical Education (ITE) (Republic of Singapore) has partnered up with SimonsVoss Security Technologies, a global provider of wireless access control technologies, to develop the ITE-SimonsVoss Security Technology Centre at ITE College West. In addition to establishing the training facility, SimonsVoss will also assist ITE by providing advanced training and curriculum development to faculty in the field of wireless and battery-driven access control technologies. Over 160 ITE students from the National ITE Certificate (Nitec) and Higher National ITE Certificate (Higher Nitec) Security courses will benefit from this partnership annually.
The advanced training centre at College West is designed to provide students with hands-on-training in a converged and highly simulated environment that will enable students to set up, configure, test and troubleshoot wireless access control systems, including that of SimonsVoss Digital Cylinders, SimonsVoss Smarthandles and SimonsVoss WaveNet Wireless Networking Technologies. When completed, the ITE-SimonsVoss Security Technology Centre will boast more than 20 complete workstations supporting up to 40 students per class.
Dr Yek Tiew Ming, Principal, ITE College West, said, "The MOU reaffirms ITE's commitment in forging close partnership with industry, and we are proud to be partnering a market leader for wireless digital access control solutions. The collaboration will offer an excellent platform for the two parties to draw on each other's strengths and synergise our resources."
Jason Kurek, Managing Director, SimonsVoss Asia, said, "SimonsVoss firmly believes in supporting programmes and institutions that benefit the communities we serve; this is an essential part of being a good corporate citizen and internationally- recognized security technology leader. In pursuit of this endeavour, we've committed to sponsoring our leading security equipment for the new "ITE-SimonsVoss Security Technology Centre".
