Hochiki Europe expands CPD portfolio with new hybrid wireless fire detection course

Designed for M&E contractors and consultants, architects and end users, the course provides an overview of what is required when specifying, installing and maintaining hybrid wireless fire detection systems. It has been designed to provide essential information on this subject including an overview of relevant sections from BS5839 Part 1 and EN54 Part 25 standards, a guide to when to use hybrid wireless, the technology behind the system and examples of appropriate applications.

The use of hybrid wireless based fire detection technology has grown massively in recent years and has proven particularly useful within temporary locations and environments where minimum disturbance to the fabric of a building is important.

Hybrid Wireless Fire Detection – The Standards & Technologies – is part of Hochiki Europe’s CPD training portfolio, which covers a range of life safety related subjects. The other three courses are Emergency Lighting Standards and Design Considerations; False Alarm Reduction in Detection Systems; and Understanding the Selection, Spacing and Siting of Detectors. Each course has been externally reviewed and approved by the Construction CPD Certification Service. They can be held at a customer’s premises and last for approximately one hour each and contribute one CPD hour to the attendees’ CPD quota.

‘The working environment is rapidly evolving and life safety professionals must continuously acquire new knowledge and skills in order to remain at the cutting edge of what they do,’ commented Paul Adams, Hochiki Europe’s deputy marketing manager.

‘Knowing how to correctly specify and install hybrid wireless fire detection systems is extremely beneficial and this new course, along with our other highly successful CPD courses, highlights our commitment to education and the sharing of our world class expertise.’
