Course Description:

This course covers the study of devices such as sensors, notification, control panels, and programming used in intrusion detection security systems. Also, the course is focused in the installation and configuration of closed circuit TV systems for small, medium, and large facilities, introduces access control systems, including applications, door locking systems, readers biometrics, and controllers. The course is complemented with the installation practices as well as with building and electrical codes.

 

Learning Outcomes:

Upon the successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:

 

1.      Identify and select the correct sensors, notifications devices, and control panels for intrusion detection systems.

2.      Install, wire and program intrusion detection systems.

3.      Select components and install access control systems.

4.      Select, install the correct equipment for a CCTV systems.

5.      Apply troubleshooting procedures for all security systems.

 

Instructional Methods:

This course will utilize a variety of instructional methods that may include lecture, group discussions, individual and group projects, video presentations, research projects, field trips, guest speakers, and interactive learning through the use of technology.

Course Policies

 

1.       Attendance: Students are expected to attend and be on time for all regularly scheduled class sessions.

 

Class session attendance:A student is considered present if he or she is in class for the scheduled amount of time (entire class period) without tardiness or leaving class early.The timeframe for a student to be considered and recorded as present in the class session is more than half (51%) of the scheduled class period.Students with attending less than 50% of the class period will be marked as absent.

 

Course attendance:A student may not miss more than 20% of any given classroom hours in a course. (Example:A 60 contact hour course will have a maximum allowable absence of 12 hours (3 days). Students who exceed 15% of the total course hours missed will receive an attendance warning letter and/or advisement.Students who exceed 20% of the total course hours missed may be withdrawn from the course and will need to repeat it.

 

Consecutive day attendance: Students who exceed five (5) consecutive days of non-attendance and have not communicated with their Instructor, Program Director, Registrar, and Campus Director will be withdrawn from their program.Students who have communicated with campus staff will be permitted to return to class the next class day or they will be withdrawn.

 

Make up work: In the event of absences or tardiness, makeup work will be assigned at the discretion of the instructor.This make up work must be submitted by the deadline provided by the instructor, and no later than 10 days after the original due date.

 

Additional Information:Students with extenuating and documented circumstances causing the attendance violation may file a request for attendance appeal within five (5) calendar days of notification of the violation to the Program Director or Campus Director who will review with the Director of Academic Operations for approval or denial.The student will be notified of the decision within five (5) calendar days of the receipt of the appeal.�� If no appeal is filed within the required timeline, the violation will remain and appropriate actions taken.For additional information, please see the student appeals policy (EDU2015-001).All students must be meeting the Standards of Satisfactory Progress (SAP).

 

2. Late Assignments/Make Up Work:

At the instructor�s discretion, make-up work may be provided to students who have missed class assignments or tests.Make-up work must be completed within two (2) weeks of original due date. The instructor may impose a penalty for late work submissions.

 

3. Academic Dishonesty/Plagiarism:

Students and faculty will not tolerate or commit any form of academic dishonesty. Any form of deceit in the completion of assigned work is considered a form of academic dishonesty. This includes, but is not limited to:

   Assisting, or allowing another to assist you, in academic dishonesty.

   Any attempt to share answers during a test or in submitting an assignment.

   Any attempt to claim work, data, or creative efforts of another as your own.

   Resubmitting graded assignments for use in multiple classes (recycling your work).

   Knowingly providing false information about your academic performance to the college.

   Copying and pasting others� work, information from the Internet, or work from any source, into assignments without using quotation marks and citing the source.

 

Plagiarism

Papers that you write in your program of study must follow APA guidelines and those set by the instructor. Using another�s creation, written or otherwise, without permission or without giving appropriate credit is the academic equivalent of theft.

 

Consequences of Academic Dishonesty/Plagiarism

In many of your classes, you will prepare writing assignment using research methods. The use of research documents must remain at an appropriate level for the credential being earned.All violations of academic policy are documented and made a part of the student's academic record. When academic dishonesty is determined, the student will be notified of the incident, which may result in one or more of the actions listed below:

   Reduction in assignment grade on which the violation occurred.

   No credit on the assignment, paper, test, or exam on which the violation occurred.

   A failing grade for the course.

   Suspension or dismissal from the college.

4. Professionalism/Behavior:

Students are expected to participate in all learning and graded activities as assigned by the instructor and conduct themselves in a professional manner at all times.
