This course has been significantly revised in response to the need for Design Training in Fire Detection and Alarm Systems. Unfortunately a lack of understanding of many aspects of the design process and the application of the I.S.3218 Standard has led to many poorly designed and often non-compliant installations around the country.
In the past few years PCCE has seen a significant upsurge of interest from members of the Fire Service and Contractors in particular - and a growing number of Designers in 2016 - in respect of gaining further knowledge through participation in FDAS courses with PCCE. We are hoping that this trend will continue and that more FDAS design consultants will participate.
From an analysis of the Test and Exam papers we check and from the reality of actual installation inspections and observation, there is still a long way to go before we have 'compliance' as the norm in FDAS design and installation.
For this reason we have taken our 1-day Review course and significantly changed it to put a greater emphasis on exactly how to carry out compliant FDAS Designs. Even the course title has changed to reflect its 'Design Training' element. This course now includes practical interactive design examples. For some, this course could be considered as a pre-cursor to the more advanced 3-day Certificate Course.
In the end of 2015 and the first half of 2016 some there were over 100 attendees of this course around the country. Some of these were in-house courses and the remainder were in six cities around the country. There is already considerable interest and advanced bookings for this revised course and dates for the first three venues are confirmed.
This course will benefit all parties involved in all aspects of the FDAS process: Architects Fire Service Project Managers Clients Designers Installers Commissioning Parties Service and Maintenance Providers
