Fire alarm installation course


Fire Alarm Installation course is designed for those who have an electrical background (for example maintenance electricians) or for those who have successfully completed NVQ level 2: Electrical Maintenance Skills.

Why is electrical knowledge important in fire alarm installation?

It is very important to understand the association between fire alarm installation and electrical installation. In order to install and maintain a fire alarm system, a basic knowledge of electrics is a must.

As fire alarm installation should strictly comply with BS5839, it also demands the installer to have a very sound knowledge of BS7671 IET wiring regulation.

Not all fire alarm systems demand a mains connection, there are smoke detectors which sometimes do not require a mains connection in domestic dwellings. It all depends on the grades of the system.

However, when a fire alarm system is connected to the mains, it should comply with the standards.
