Fire Alarm Expert Training

"This training course is suited to installation companies or individuals wishing to improve their skills and develop their knowledge of addressable fire alarms system. This will be of particular interest to installation and fire system engineers, who require a better understanding of integrating fire systems with other equipment, such as access control and fire shutters etc. The training course is also recommended for electrical installation companies who are already installing conventional systems and wish to seek new opportunities and business in the more profitable addressable fire alarm market place. Modern fire alarm systems require careful, validated installation and maintenance to ensure that false alarms are infrequent and that a real fire would be detected quickly without damage to property or loss of life. This course provides delegates with the knowledge and skills necessary to work on these systems competently. The course is presented using 4 wire, 2 wire and analogue addressable fire alarm panels and associated components so that candidates learn how to design, how the devices fit into the system, how they function and the way in which they should be configured, connected and tested. On-going assessments are used to ensure that the candidates are able to meet the objectives of the course. Comprehensive course notes are provided.
