The Certified Automated Gate Systems Designer Program covers the essential subjects needed to properly design an automated gate operator system in compliance with all automated gate and gate standards. Starting with which type of gate and gate operator will best suit an application and continuing through final site layout, students will be led through the entire design process. Two days of training to obtain the equivalent of years of experience makes this an ideal course for anyone selling or specifying gate operator systems.
