Fire Alarms Training Course Content:

The first day of the course is spent reading through and interpreting the relevant parts of BS 5839.

The second day takes the form of a practical workshop where a system is designed, constructed and inspected and tested. The participant is then introduced to the practical issues of system maintenance, certification and reporting.

In general, it is appropriate to install some form of fire alarm system in virtually all buildings, except very small relatively open planned buildings. The initiation of alarm can be either manual or automatic, or a combination of both, as is usually the case.

The level of cover required by a building is based upon a fire risk assessment and a suitable system selected to meet this need.
