ESA’s National Training School announced the launch of its new Training as a Service Program (Taas) at ESX in Indianapolis. This member-only customizable training program is designed with two tracks to help security professionals develop the skills they need to apply at work, both directly after being hired and as they build 6-18 months of on the job tenure.

“ESA is extremely excited about the TaaS program,” said Michelle Yungblut, chief knowledge officer of ESA. “We always aim to deliver benefits to our members that will relieve pressure points — and strong onboarding and training is certainly something many struggle with. When you can deliver a customizable program that’s going to chart growth for new employees from their very first day and throughout their first year of employment, that’s powerful.”

The ESA systems technician path is designed for professionals with 0-6 months of experience and focuses on core industry knowledge, safety and employability skills. The ESA systems specialist path, designed for professionals with 6-18 months of experience, features more advanced technical courses and industry trend context. Both training paths are built to include a subset of electives, to make the training customizable to your business objectives.

The new TaaS program promises to deliver training that is easy to use, easy to afford and easy to implement throughout member companies. It has been designed by industry professionals to bring the latest in security training and advancements. 

“The program was created with the guidance of six industry experts who have many years of experience training and onboarding their companies’ new hires,” Yungblut said. “They suggested topics that fit a variety of areas which they felt would have the biggest impact on getting their new hires fast tracked to attaining excellence in installation procedures.”

TaaS courses are offered through an online portal and status reports help track student progress.
