CPD – Continuing personal or professional development

EMS continue our CPD Programme

Our addition is the newly launched EN54 -23 “Visual Alarm Devices & Application” seminar. This outlines the requirements of the standard in easy to understand language with examples on how to use Visual Alarm Devices or “VADS” in real world situations.

In addition we have two further accredited CPD seminars; the first is “Wireless Fire Systems & EN54-25″.

This is designed to assist in the understanding of EN54-25, the European standard appertaining to wireless fire systems. The 45 minute (plus questions) module also gives guidance on the application of wireless as well as dispelling some of the myths around using radio based fire systems.

This module will benefit both intermediate and advanced fire professionals but is also suitable as an entry level introduction to EN54-25

This free seminar can be booked by contacting Ray Puttock at ray.puttock@emsgroup.co.uk or call 01227 369570 to talk through your requirements

Our earlier module: “To wire or not wire” looks at wired, wireless or a combination of both (hybrid) and what the benefits are to the user.

The accreditation of our CPD learning programme is provided by CIBSE

All modules are fully certified by CPD and are worth one point or 1 hour of CPD learning.
