Hi All

I really have to update this page more often – another New Year resolution down the drain!

It has been an excellent training start to 2023 and there is a lot more to announce now:

Emergency Lighting (EML):

The EML Service Provider Course (EL3) has run 4 times since the start of the year and more are now scheduled. This course now includes the requirements for servicing EML installations designed to the UK standard BS5266.

The EML Review/Design Principals (EL2)*NEW* course has had to be held off up to now as the revised standard has not been published. I understand this will happen early April and so this course is scheduled to take place after that.

In addition, a new EML Refresher/Update (EL4) *NEW* which will address any changes in the revised standard and refresh tired minds on the Standard, will take place from April onwards.

Fire Detection and Alarm Systems (FDAS):

There is no real news about a release date for a revised I.S.3218 Standard. Best guess is after the summer – maybe. For that reason, I will be bringing back the FDAS 1-day Standard Review Course (F1). There have been a lot of enquiries for this.

The 3-day FDAS Design Course (F2) has been booked heavily since late 2022 and earlier this year and further courses are now scheduled. There have been quite extensive changes and new areas added.

Our FDAS Service Provider course (F8) has also been doing really well this year.

A new FDAS course is the FDAS Wiring and Installation Guide (F11) *NEW* which will commence in May. This is being developed primarily for Electrical contractors who prepare FDAS infrastructure. This is a neglected area and has resulted in faulty or non-compliant cable systems and subsequent False Alarm and FDAS system failures.

Refer to Course Outline F11 on this website.

Fire Safety (FS):

New FS courses include:

User Responsibilities – Fire Safety in Residential Buildings (B2) *NEW*. This course reviews Legislative and Best Practice User obligations in respect of the provision of Life Safety Systems (FDAS; EML; FFE; etc) in residential buildings (Apartments; Hotels; Nursing Homes, etc). This course looks at how Providers of such services should be chosen; competence; Contract examples; records; etc.

In tandem with the above, we are introducing the Fire Safety in Residential Buildings – Life Safety Systems Service and Maintenance (B3) *NEW*. This course is designed to have users become knowledgeable in respect of the extent and need for compliant Service and Maintenance of Life Safety Systems.

Both the B2 and B3 courses will include templates to assist Users with practically directing these issues. Refer to the Course Outlines under Fire Safety here on the website,

Finally, another new addition will be the Fire Safety course – Fire Doors- Installation and Maintenance (B6) *NEW*. This is being introduced following several queries from our clients.

Hopefully, there is enough here for all and I look forward to hearing from you.

Regards

Paul Condron
