Practical Fire Alarm Installation – BTEC Level 3 Certificate

Course Overview

The requirement to install fire alarms to not just meet but exceed industry standards has never been higher. In an area that is so widely publicised, this practical fire alarm installation training course is suited to installation companies or individuals wishing to improve their skills and develop their knowledge of addressable fire alarms systems, using best-practice techniques.

We typically see learners on this course who are fire system engineers, or those who supervise this level, who require a better understanding of integrating fire systems with other equipment, such as access control and fire shutters. We also see a number of learners who are already installers in other areas of technology who would like to move into fire alarm installations, to add to their portfolio of skills.

The training is of a practical nature, using real systems to practice what is learnt in the lessons. You’ll have expert tutor support, ensuring your understanding is relevant and useful. Upon successful completion of the training, you’ll earn a BTEC Level 3 Certificate, which is an internationally-recognised qualification.

This training course also counts towards the Certified Technical Security Professional Register application.
