Fire-Lite Alarms by Honeywell continues to host its traditional series of fire alarm systems trainings free-of-charge throughout the United States. Courses cover a wide range of technical information, including installation, programming and troubleshooting with hands-on exercises using the latest fire alarm control and IP communication products from Fire-Lite Alarms.

According to Fire-Lite Alarms’ instructional curriculum developer and senior technical trainer, Tom Rosa, demand for training is up.

“Many are coming to learn more about addressable systems and move away from conventional technology. Others are looking for additional hands-on training with the panels and our new IP Communicator,” Rosa said.

This year, Fire-Lite’s training schedule includes more than 60 courses taking place nationwide, free-of-charge. Training sessions in 2009 with room still available are as follows:

MiniScan Academy (3 Days)

A three-day training that begins with a half-day Basic Fire Alarm Technology course covering the basic building blocks of modern conventional and addressable fire alarm systems. It covers the primary and secondary functions of a fire alarm control panel, various initiating and notification devices, digital communicators, waterflow alarm and sprinkler monitoring. The academy continues with training on Fire-Lite's conventional and addressable fire alarm control panels. Product features, installation methods, programming and troubleshooting are taught through practical hands-on exercises. Installation and configuration of Fire-Lite’s IPDACT, a module that enables the transmission of alarms from a fire alarm control panel via any IP network line (i.e. ADSL, cable, Internet), is also covered.

A final segment on Power Supply Fundamentals has been enhanced to include a hands-on practical exercise covering the most common applications using Fire-Lite’s FCPS-24FS series power supplies.
