The Fire Protection Association (FPA), the national fire safety organisation which delivers over 250 training courses annually across the UK, has announced that it’s re-establishing the insurer-backed LPC Training brand as a response to increasing numbers of enquiries for good quality security systems and management training.
Courses will be aimed at those who manage and/or have the legal responsibility to maintain alarm, security and CCTV systems, as well as individuals supplying and installing those products. Training days will be held in London and Manchester as well as at LPC Training’s headquarters in Moreton-in-Marsh, Gloucestershire.
FPA managing director Jonathan O’Neill commented: “LPC Training was a hallmark of quality in the business and property protection sector. It was a brand held in particularly high esteem by insurers. Its return to the marketplace is welcome news for those in the facilities management and security sectors who are looking to ensure their competency is validated by a trusted name.”
John Briggs, director of LPC Training, added: “The important things to note about LPC Training are its independence and the quality of the information it provides. Training is delivered by experts at the forefront of the property protection field, while the organisation isn’t connected to any particular products, meaning that delegates can expect an objective view and Best Practice advice.”
LPC Training’s first courses will run in April, with subjects including the Management and Maintenance of Security Systems, which will cover legal and Best Practice guidance for those responsible for a variety of systems, as well as specific courses on alarm systems, CCTV and access control.
Many of the courses will result in a qualification recognised by CFPA Europe.
