Secure Your Value in the ICT Marketplace

BICSI Electronic Safety and Security Course available at www.psatec.com!

Master the intricacies of designing electronic safety and security (ESS) systems, including surveillance systems, access control, systems integration and more to fully market your skills. Become a BICSI-credentialed ESS Designer.

The Credential
In 2009, BICSI established the Electronic Safety and Security (ESS) Design credential. Those achieving the designation have proven their ability to understand and apply a vast collection of ESS technology and design information. They are well-versed in principles of security, the ESS design process, access control, surveillance systems, intrusion detection systems, fire detection and alarm systems, network security, project management and more. ESS Designers possess outstanding ESS design qualities that give them significant competitive recognition.

The Manual
The ESS Designer credential is achieved by passing an exam based on the BICSI Electronic Safety and Security Design Reference Manual (ESSDRM). With the convergence of security systems onto the network, much of the responsibility for future security designs rests in the hands of information and communications technology (ICT) professionals. The ESSDRM guides its readers in this convergence and allows you to stay current on global best practices for the design and integration of different ESS systems.

The Courses
BICSI’s ESS courses prepare you for success and give you the educational tools you need to pursue your ESS Designer credential. Introduction to ESS, an online course, is the first course in the ESS series. This introductory course discusses security design basics and theory, as well as current and future trends in electronic safety and security. ESS110: Designing Electronic Safety and Security Systems, is a five-day course that provides you with the knowledge you need to design ESS systems, as well as concepts, systems and processes related to integrating ESS systems.
