New BS 5839-1 fire detection and alarm system compliance courses available

16 Mar 2022

Boost your competency, expertise and professional performance and achieve an industry-recognised qualification in the process with C-TEC’s new BS 5839-1 fire detection and alarm system compliance courses. 

C-TEC has launched a new series of BS 5839-1 fire detection and fire alarm system compliance courses. 

Delivered at C-TEC’s state-of-the-art training centre in the North West of England, the courses include both theoretical and practical activities. Thoroughly covering BS 5839-1 Foundation, Design, Installation & Commissioning and Maintenance, the courses can culminate in a regulated qualification in BS 5839-1 through FireQual, the specialist awarding body for the fire protection sector in the UK.

Brian Foster, UK Sales Manager at the rapidly expanding company, said: “C-TEC is on a mission to lift industry standards and the quality of fire installations across the UK. We’ve always provided free educational CPD-certified seminars and product training to promote best practice and raise awareness but the launch of our BS 5839-1 ‘TRAIN-TO-GAIN’ courses signals our intention to take it to a new level.”

“We’re confident the courses will attract a high level of interest as they’re reasonably-priced, centrally-located and specifically designed to encourage people working in the fire industry to embark on a journey to boost their competency, expertise and professional performance – and achieve an industry-recognised qualification in the process.”

Each course will be delivered by highly experienced and qualified trainers in line with the technical requirements of the awarding body. Delegates will undergo hands-on practical assessments to ensure they understand the subject matter and display the necessary competence to attain the regulated qualification. Successful delegates will be issued with CPD Certificates for each module and those who pass a final exam will be awarded a regulated qualification certificate from FireQual.

Added Brian: “High-quality training is vital in the fire industry. Whether you’re an industry newcomer or an established company looking to educate new personnel, our new BS 5839-1 courses are designed to equip delegates with the knowledge, expertise and confidence they need to be among the best in the business.”

Bookable over multiple weeks or as an intensive week-long cluster, the courses will prepare delegates for the FireQual regulated qualification examination to allow them to design, install, commission and maintain fire detection and fire alarm systems to BS 5839-1 and confidently sign fire certificates where necessary. 

C-TEC is one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of world-class life-safety systems. The company’s latest innovations include its new CAST protocol fire detection and fire alarm systems; Hush, a revolutionary new BS 5839-6 Grade C domestic fire alarm system and EVAC-ALERT, a new evacuation alert system to BS 8629.
