This online engineering PDH course provides an introduction to the design of security fences. It applies to all construction, renovation, and repair projects including temporary construction that includes security fencing and gates. It is not intended to address procedural issues such as threat levels or to provide specific design criteria such as vehicle impact forces.
Security fences and gates are installed and used primarily to define the perimeter of protected areas, such as restricted areas, controlled areas, entry control/access control points, installation perimeters, and to provide a physical and psychological deterrent to entry and preventing unauthorized personnel from entering a protected area.
This 3 PDH online course is intended for civil engineers, and other design and construction professionals seeking an introduction to the fundamentals of security fences. Security managers, security personnel, planners, designers, architects, and engineers may use this information when evaluating existing and providing new security fences and gates.
