    I started with only a small amount of information about Biometric devices. After completing the course, I can now easily see how they are integrated into access control systems. The course (and course notes) were arranged very nicely, an improvement over time.

    MPPERES from SECURITECH Well constructed course. Study notes are a plus point. I now have a good grounding on biometrics
