SIA launches SIAcademy learning management system for members

SILVER SPRING, Md.—The Security Industry Association (SIA) has launched a new learning management system (LMS) – SIAcademy – as part of its efforts to advance industry professionalism through premier education and training.

SIAcademy is a living library of on-demand training and professional development programs designed to enhance security professionals’ industry knowledge, technical skills and overall job performance. The new LMS offers a modern, simple, and centralized place to access role-based training, certification prep materials and other relevant educational content anytime, anywhere and on any device.

Elli Reges“The launch of the SIAcademy learning management system and course catalog is a milestone within SIA and for the security industry,” said Dr. Elli Reges, SIA’s director of learning and development. “This robust new platform offers dynamic learning tools to help learners and employers harness and unleash individual performance potential through customizable learning pathways and strategic investments in human capital, and it offers immense growth opportunity for those who prioritize their own professional development.”

SIAcademy, powered by the cloud, delivers on-demand e-learning offerings and live online courses. Features of the new system include:

  • Easy accessibility and a mobile-friendly interface
  • Interactive engagement tools and gamification
  • Continuing education credits

When accessing SIAcademy, you can find content such as:

  • SIA’s Security Project Management (SPM) training
  • SIA’s Security Cornerstones series, designed for new employee onboarding
  • A microlearning series created to propel young professionals’ knowledge and growth
  • A training course on the federal grants’ life cycle and security-related grant programs
  • On-demand SIAcademy LIVE! courses on video security, access control, sales and more
  • Materials and guidelines to help you prepare for the Security Industry Cybersecurity Certification (SICC) exam

“I think learners will be very pleased with the new capabilities of SIAcademy! It allows us to facilitate more engagement through discussion boards and other features and reinforce key learning objectives with interactive gamification tools,” said DeAndre Thornton, SIA’s manager of learning and development.

Through SIAcademy’s microsite capability, which SIA plans to make available in the near future, SIA member companies will be able to create their own customizable microsites, on which they can build their own content and license content from SIA’s LMS to develop learning plans for their teams, partners and/or clients.

SIA’s new Security Systems Technician (SST) apprenticeship program, using the SIAcademy microsite capability, will provide participating employers with access to more than 100 hours of curated e-learning content. SIA members are invited to contribute educational course content that is product-agnostic and vendor-neutral to support apprentice knowledge and skill development in designated competency areas.
