Apollo Fire Detectors awarded CPD accreditation for duo of fire safety training courses

Apollo Fire Detectors has reinforced its commitment to promoting Best Practice in industry training by achieving Continuing Professional Development (CPD) accreditation for two of its courses. Delivered at the company’s Havant headquarters, the two courses aim to help boost the understanding of how different sensors, conventional systems and analogue addressable systems work and also provide information on the EN54-23 standard for the use and function of visual alarm devices (VADs).

By sharing its expertise and knowledge through these free training courses, Apollo is actively demonstrating its support for CPD by helping fire sector professionals to develop their abilities and ensure they remain effective and increasingly capable in their roles.

The newly-accredited courses delivered by Apollo Fire Detectors are as follows:

Fire Detection and System Principles: Product Training Course A

This six-hour training course is aimed at consultants, specifiers, designers, installers, commissioning engineers and service engineers. It covers the principles of fire detectors, where they might be used and how they’re maintained, as well as the operation and use of detectors and devices on non-addressable and addressable fire systems.

Introduction to the European Standard EN54-23

This one-hour seminar, which is aimed at specifiers and integrators, provides information on the EN standard for the use and function of VADs within automatic fire alarm systems. The content covers classes of device, specification formats, CoP0001, the appropriate use of VADs and product selection.

Warren Moyle, senior product support engineer at Apollo Fire Detectors, takes the lead for the design and delivery of the company’s training courses. Speaking about the two new accreditations, Moyle informed Risk UK: “The fire detection industry is continually evolving. It’s absolutely crucial that the many professionals working within our field remain up-to-date with all of the latest developments and legislation. We’re really pleased to have received accreditation for these two courses, which now join our comprehensive range of CPD-approved training resources.”
