Security and Fire Detection Design Training



CIBSE Approved CPD Training from Diamond Systems

Diamond Systems, specialists in fire and security systems, is accredited by The Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE), to deliver Continuous Professional Development (CPD) training on Fire and Security Alarm Detection Design.

In any profession, regular CPD is an essential way of keeping your skills and knowledge up to date. The Design range of CPDs offered by Diamond Systems are aimed at those involved in the design of security and fire detection systems, including Consultant Engineers, Architects and Specifiers.

The training will also benefit professionals who need to understand the design requirements of these systems, including building control officers, fire prevention officers, fire safety personnel, fire risk assessors, and local authorities.

The CPD courses take the form of a 1 hour presentation (currently online), in which delegates are provided with an overview of key design considerations and an update on any recent changes to the Code of Practice.

The courses also highlight some of the common pitfalls at design stage, based on our 30 plus years’ experience as specialist installers and maintainers in this sector.

The CPD courses are approved by CIBSE, who in reviewing the content and quality of the courses commented:

“The presentations are high quality, with lots of technical information and cover all our requirements”
