If you’re an electrician, looking to develop your skills and increase the range of work you are competent to undertake; if you’re interested in learning about fire alarm systems and emergency lighting, then this could be the course for you.
Why Take this Course?
Fire alarms and Emergency lighting play an integral role in enhancing our safety and, in the commercial sector, proper fire safety precautions are a legal requirement.
With this course you will be adding an important string to your bow, expanding the range of work you are competent to undertake, and increasing your earning potential.
You will learn how to design, install, test and inspect a range of fire alarm and emergency lighting technologies, gaining the vital knowledge that will help you ensure your work complies with the relevant British Standards.
This Course Covers (over 3 days)
The need for fire alarm systems and emergency lighting is governed by ‘enforcing authorities’ who have a duty to enforce fire safety in non-domestic premises. When a system is required, the relevant British Standard is used for auditing by these ‘enforcing authorities’.
This course will provide a comprehensive overview of the relevant British Standards for these technologies, covering:
• Legislation under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 and The Building Regulations 2000
• BS5839-1:2002 + A2:2011 Part 1 Fire detection and alarm systems for buildings
• BS5266-1:2005 Emergency lighting
• BS5266-7:1999 Lighting applications - Emergency lighting
• BS5266-8:2004 Emergency escape lighting systems
Your learning will be guided via the following subjects:
• System categories
• System design
• False alarms
• Users responsibilities
• Inspection & Servicing
This course is classroom based and includes theory assessments. These assessments will take place on the third and final day.
The course involves ‘open book’ examination, which will allow you to use relevant literature as a point of reference to complete your paper. NAPIT provide all reference materials and literature for clean book courses such as this.
Although there are no formal prerequisites, it is expected that you will have some previous installation experience and a basic knowledge of similar systems.
On Completion of the Course
Candidates will receive a NAPIT Certificate of Attendance and have developed the skills and knowledge required to competently design, commission and inspect fire alarm systems and emergency lighting.
