Gira is offering a new way of learning by actively helping to support, develop and grow the smart home sector with the Gira Academy:

Gira offers a broad range of intelligent building technology that requires a good working knowledge of modern electrical installation. Thanks to the Gira Academy, knowledge and expertise can be grown via web-based training, Gira webinars and face-to-face tutelage.

“Our in-depth knowledge of products and technological developments are passed on through the Gira Academy,” says Mark Booth, managing director, Gira UK.

”This facility is essential for developing the professional knowledge of modern electrical installation, which in turn, will make consulting easier and ensure more satisfied customers. By taking on new segments with the help of the Gira Academy, you will be able to tap into new revenue potential and expand your business into previously untapped markets.”

“The Gira Academy gives the freedom to customise, so each training course can be personalised to each new learner. By combining various learning methods – on site, on demand and online – users can determine their own training program as part of a group or remotely at home,” explains Booth. 

New research by OnePoll found that 15 million homes are recorded as being ‘smart’ in Britain. Already high, this figure is set to increase even more as those already committed to home automation plan to further update their home to continue to save money and improve home convenience. 

Gira supports electricians in this endeavour with the Gira Academy. They can learn while they earn by accessing new courses which have been specially optimised for tablets and smartphones. This allows learners to study on the go and have the latest technical know-how to hand: great when talking with customers in person or when working on site. For more information, visit
