Installer relaunch

Aico, the domestic smoke and Carbon Monoxide (CO) alarm manufacturer, is relaunching its Expert Installer CPD accredited training scheme at this year’s FIREX, besides showing its alarm ranges. The show runs from Tuesday to Thursday, June 19 to 21, at ExCel in London Docklands, on stand A625.

Taster sessions of the new Expert Installer will be held twice a day at the fire exhibition alongside IFSEC in Aico’s on-stand mini theatre. Expert Installer has trained over 17,500 industry employees in domestic fire alarm specification and installation. It’s been reviewed and re-formatted by focus groups from across the company, including the Technical Team and the Regional Specification Managers who deliver the training on a regular basis. A new feature is greater use of video content and interactive elements.

The scheme remains modular, allowing people to fill gaps in their knowledge, but now a core module has been established that must be completed if the certification is to be granted. This core module, which takes around an hour to complete, covers standards and regulations plus alarm system design and installation. The aim is to ensure consistency of knowledge. Nine further modules, each running between 20-30 minutes, complete the revised scheme.

Aico’s double decker stand at FIREX will be staffed with Aico Regional Specification Managers and Aico’s Senior Management Team to offer visitors advice on smoke and CO alarm specification, installation and maintenance. They will also be participating in FIREX’s Sprinkler Zone, showing how a BS5839 Part 6 Fire Alarm System can be integrated to sprinkler systems with Aico’s Ei414 Fire/CO Alarm Interface. Other third-party safety devices can also be interconnected using the Ei414 such as telecare and warden call devices and BS5839 Part 1 alarm panels.

Aico’s new 3000 Series covers fire and CO detection, providing whole property coverage from one Series. The 3000 includes Aico’s first Multi-Sensor Heat and CO alarm. All products in the Series feature AudioLINK data extraction and SmartLINK wireless interconnection and whole system data monitoring. Visit
