PSX Attends Fencetech for Automated Gate Systems Continuing Education

PSX Security Specialists receive Automated Gates Systems Design and Installation Certifications from the Institute of Door Dealer Education and Accreditation.

True security requires vigilance – not just watching for threats approaching the perimeter, but also staying educated on best practices and the continuous improvements happening in the industry.  This month, a group of our security specialists and technicians attended the 2017 Fencetech Conference and Expo in San Antonio, Texas February 1-5. During the conference they attended courses and tested for certifications in Automated Gates Systems Design and Installation. All PSX employees in attendance received their certification from the Institute of Door Dealer Education and Accreditation (IDEA).

The Institute of Door Dealer Education and Accreditation (IDEA) website describes: “IDEA is a non-profit educational organization established to meet the informational needs of consumers and the business and accreditation needs of door, gate and operator dealers.”

Accreditation by IDEA is intended to assist the general public in the selection of a qualified, professional door systems dealer when purchasing, servicing, or installing an overhead door, automatic gate operator, fire door and other industry products. IDEA Accreditation enables professional door companies to be more easily recognized by the public. Companies earning the Accreditation seal have demonstrated a commitment to industry excellence by completing a demanding study course, documenting good business practices and receiving recommendations from others with whom they do business.
