Hi and welcome to the site.

It is terrifying to realise that we are now looking at course schedules to the end of 2021. I feel as if the year only started a short while ago. It is what it is though, and hopefully you will all have enjoyed some good weather, things opening up again and, certainly in my case, the sense of freedom that follows the jabs.

I have decided to maintain all courses online. This has proven to be extremely successful for both attendees and myself. I can’t see me returning to face-to-face courses. Presenting online has the benefit of allowing me to spend more time developing the courses content. It also has resulted in lower charges on all courses and no travel hassle for attendees. Instead of – ‘sorry I’m late, the traffic was terrible’ we have ‘sorry I’m late, my internet was slow’!

We are re-introducing our Fire Alarm Service Provider Training Course (F8). This had to be postponed because of COVID but we have now completed the Day 1 section of the course which, while quite practical, does not have any hands-on activities. This course will provide all of the training needed to provide I.S.3218-compliant, FDAS Servicing. Unfortunately, we have found serious issues with non-compliant FDAS servicing in Ireland and feel that this course is badly needed.

There are several System providers who are carrying out product training, This is excellent, and PCCE will review the need for hands-on training for Service providers in addition to additional training for FDAS Commissioning.

I.S.3218 and I.S.3217 Standards are still at committee stage at this time. The intent is to issue revisions in 2021, however, it is not clear if this target will be met. I will keep you advised. Keep in mind that few. If any, of the fundamentals will change and so training is never wasted.

Looking forward to hearing from you

Regards and stay safe

Paul

Sample Attendee feedback

Philip O’Brien – Louth County Council Fire & Rescue

Both courses were well run, informative and very enjoyable to attend. Having a mix of contractors and fire officers was good from my point of view and adds balance to the information provided, the discussions, etc.

Paul Hunt – Westmeath Fire & Rescue Service

I attended the 3-day I.S. 3218 Course covering design and installation of fire alarm/detections systems in 2013. As a professional working in the fire and rescue service the course was of huge benefit to me. The class mix of fire officers and alarm installers/designers allowed for discussions of issues that were of mutual interest. The course itself was delivered by Paul Condron and Frank Pierce. Both managed to deliver a huge quantity of information in a short period as well as comprehensively addressing any queries raised. I would highly recommend this course based on the relevance of its content as well as the calibre and experience of those delivering it.

Chris O’Callaghan – Chubb Ireland Ltd, Cork

Thank you for your instruction and assistance on the day.  Hopefully it will not be too long before we meet again.  I learned a lot on the day and it has raised my confidence with regards to emergency lighting.

In relation to yesterday’s presentation, I thought the content of the presentation was great and very relevant, I took away a lot of knowledge from the presentation and as mechanical I haven’t seen some of this in work myself so it was a great insight into what the guys do, I did do some of this in college but Paul thought it in a very practical way, however, I think it would be better for the students if there was more time allocated to this subject rather than the content shortened in the future.

I would like to say the presentation was brilliant and I can say the same thing about the delivery, it was a little unfortunate that a section of the fire alarm needed to be rushed that was the only downfall.

Also if it’s okay to contact him with questions related to fire alarm and emergency lighting if ever needed.

Martina Smith – Advanced Fire Protection

Congratulations on the successful delivery of the above.

My guys found it hugely beneficial and well run.

Can you let me know when you plan to hold more courses in the year – we are on a roll!!!

James – James Reynolds & Associates

I enjoyed the course and the format. More comfortable in my own house. Saved a lot of time in travel. Covid or not, I would say it is the way forward.

Paul – Roarty, Donegal

I really enjoyed the format, as I did not lose 4-hours in my day travelling. I was comfortable in my own home and I don’t think the remote delivery reduced the quality of the content. I feel the course is great value. You certainly come away, better informed. As mentioned above, I would have loved to see a real life worked example, Inc. specification to see how it all comes together. It would be the icing on the cake.

Paul – Telesto, Dublin

Hi Paul,

I really enjoyed the courses and your casual and professional manner.

I do hope to meet you again in the near future.

Kind regards,
