About the Course

SIAcademy LIVE! is a series of instructor-led virtual courses to help you grow your business and technical know-how. In this series, expand your knowledge on identity, credential issuance, mobile access and how to select the right modality for your needs or those of your clients!

Modalities in access control systems (ACS) encompass various technologies, systems and authentication methods which are quickly evolving. For this series, SIA has teamed up with Access Control Executive Brief to explore various types of ACS and their practical applications. Join moderator Lee Odess in this interactive learning series to further your understanding of multiple ACS modalities including mobile credentials. This series will provide you and your team with valuable ACS insights on applications and use cases for enhanced security and improved user experience.

Our goal is to provide a dynamic learning experience for busy professionals seeking continuous learning opportunities. We highly encourage participants to attend the live webinar sessions, engage in moderated discussions and ask questions to gain a deeper understanding of key concepts and real-world applications. Each instructor-led session in this series is recorded, and participants will receive on-demand access for 90 days.
