Qualification for fire alarm engineer

Hi John

They should ideally have done Modules 1 and 2 of a Fire Alarm course and have a knowledge of the system they are working with.

At the very minimum they need to have been trained in how to change detectors on the system they have installed. The job can be done by a general maintenance person, if he/she is considered a site-responsible and competent person.

The reason for having to know the system is that some systems, like addressable ones, need to be reset when things are changed; while others, mainly non addressable ones, can just be swapped over.

If the company places one of their maintenance guys on the course mentioned above, they could do their own servicing inhouse.
