Fire alarm systems manufacturer Fire-Lite Alarms, a Honeywell company, recently announced its 2013 training schedule.
The company’s sessions, which consist of a free introductory products course and a more advanced software applications training track for a $200 fee, will be offered in more than 50 cities across the U.S. All courses are accredited with the Electronic Security Association (ESA) for continuing education credits.
"Course attendance for the last year has hit an all-time high," says Tom Rosa, Fire-Lite Alarms training supervisor. "I think it has to do with the growing demand in the market for a truly non-proprietary fire system, along with personal, classroom instruction with hands-on training that makes these courses so popular."
Starting in January, the two-day Fire-Lite Systems course will include instruction on the latest fire alarm and emergency communications systems to be introduced in the New Year. Attendees of this basic, two-day course will earn 1.6 CEUs. The more advanced, one-day Fire-Lite Software Applications course, which qualifies participants for 0.7 CEUs, will be offered in cities throughout the U.S. as well.
"As the word got out about our online training, the rate of those course completions rose steadily," says Rosa. "We’ve gotten some good feedback on these courses and some good topic suggestions so we’re definitely going to grow that online resource in the coming year."
