Apollo awarded CPD accreditation for two 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 Apollo Fire Detectors’ Havant headquarters, the two courses aim to help boost the understanding of how different sensors, conventional systems and analogue addressable systems work, and provide information on the EN54-23 standard for the use and function of VADs.

By sharing its expertise and knowledge through its free training courses, Apollo demonstrates its support for CPD by helping fire sector professionals develop their abilities and ensure they remain effective and increasingly capable.

Fire Detection and System Principles – Product Training Course A: This six-hour 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 are maintained, as well as the operation and use of detectors and devices on non-addressable and addressable fire systems.

Introduction to EN54-23: This one-hour seminar, aimed at Specifiers and Integrators, provides information on the EN standard for the use and function of visual alarm devices within automatic fire alarm systems. It covers classes of device, specification formats, CoP0001, appropriate use of VADs and product selection.

Warren Moyle, Senior Product Support Engineer with Apollo Fire Detectors, takes the lead for the design and delivery of the company’s training courses.  Speaking about the two new accreditations, he says: “The fire detection industry is continually evolving, and it’s crucial that the many professionals working within our field stay up-to-date with all of the latest developments and legislation. We’re really pleased to have received accreditation for these two courses, which join our comprehensive range of CPD-approved training resources.”
