Event Details

AFA is excited to announce a special one-day intro class to Gate Automation Technician School (GATS), held as part of the 2021 Fall Fence Forum in Worthington, IN.  This course will offer hands-on instruction in installing an automatic gate for individuals interested in diversifying thir fence business and getting into gate automation.  

All attendees will receive the GATS training manual onsite.

Please note this class is an introduction to the course material covered in the full weeklong GATS, so it will not cover all material in the book.  It is meant to provide basic knowledge and an overview of what is taught in detail in the full course.  If you think the information is valuable we encourage you to register for the full GATS, scheduled for November 7-13, 2021 in Arlington, TX.

(Pad will be pre-poured and gate will already be hung; this is for operator training only.)
