BT Redcare in pioneering training partnership

10 Aug 2017

The Security Systems and Alarms Inspection Board (SSAIB) has announced a pioneering training partnership with BT Redcare to increase their commitment to facilitating training in the security industry.

BT Redcare is the first manufacturer to work with the SSIAB to extend their training, in order to include syllabus items from the new fire, emergency and security systems standard. This new format will be delivered to both companies and colleges that specialise in security and fire systems.

On top of that, BT Redcare will also become the first manufacturer to be listed on the new training component of the SSAIB’s website for registered firms. This will grow to include a wealth of information on training schemes and a list of colleges and commercial providers that offer them.

SSAIB training manager Trevor Jenks briefly discussed this revolutionary new link up at the BT Redcare SSAIB Installer Forum earlier this year at the BT Tower. He believes that partnerships of this type are needed in the industry to improve the training of engineers – as well as supporting those that provide it.

“BT Redcare has been doing this for a long time, so it’s a way to enhance their training and ensure the essential knowledge of the technology is put in place,” Trevor said. “It’s a way of extending the existing training and expanding the knowledge of engineers in this industry.

“There are a lot of engineers out in the field who know how to fit and - with experience - maintain the products. However, by keeping their foundation knowledge up to date, they will become even better engineers and that’s the aim.”

BT Redcare is the largest supplier of alarm signalling services in the UK. Hundreds of thousands of people trust our security and fire alarm signalling products to protect their homes and businesses. - and regional technical manager Rob McLaughlin also welcomed the new partnership with SSAIB.

He revealed: “As a leader in fire and security, BT Redcare is committed to providing a range of class leading products, but also to promoting best practice and raising engineering standards within the industry as well. We’re extremely excited to work alongside the SSAIB on this new exciting training initiative and help get the next generation of installation engineers off to the best possible start in their careers.”
