New qualifications in Fire Detection & Alarm Systems are to be launched by the Fire Industry Association (FIA) at FIREX International this year.
The Association will be holding seminars and workshops on each day of the expo to help explain the different qualifications on offer, what units make up each qualification, and how getting qualified (or getting your staff) qualified will give you the edge in the business environment.
The new qualifications are aimed at fire detection and alarm technicians, and offer advanced comprehensive knowledge on the areas of design, installation, maintenance, and commissioning. They are fully backed by an awarding body and registered with the relevant government bodies for examinations and qualifications, meaning that the new qualifications are nationally accredited and recognised, and will be the new standard for the industry.
The FIA will also be having a networking bar as part of their stand, where delegates can meet informally with FIA staff, have a drink, and pick up a Professional Learning and Qualifications Prospectus. FIA staff will be on hand to answer any questions you may have about the course content or to help you decide which course would be right for you or your employees.
