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.

I completed the three day course on IS 3218 Fire Detection and Alarm systems for buildings with tutors Paul Condron and Frank Pierce. They managed to make a fairly mundane subject interesting and entertaining. Paul has a tendency to go on a bit so if you are doing the course make sure you allow a bit of extra time. They are both are experts on the subject having been involved in the updating of the IS 3218. I have had occasion to contact Paul to discuss aspect of design after completing the course and he has been extremely helpful.

“As part of Greendoor’s Continuing Professional Development programme, Paul Condron of PCCE Training was engaged to carry out an in-house course on Fire Safety in apartment Buildings with both the Property Managers and our onsite Caretakers. When we asked Paul in to conduct the course with us, which was tailored to suit our business requirements, we had a goal of becoming more aware and more informed of the fire safety issues that could occur onsite. What we got was so much more in-depth knowledge regarding building structure, fire proofing, hazards and current regulations. It proved essential as it not only refreshed and enhanced the Property Manager’s knowledge of building fire safety but also proved crucial in educating our onsite day to day staff as they are now fully aware and can anticipate potential hazards and issues before they become a real problem. I would have no hesitation in recommending Paul and would urge anyone in the industry to utilise his services as this is such a crucial and relevant topic and it is our responsibility to ensure that the buildings we manage are fully compliant and safe for all who live there.”

“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.”
