EN54-23 Made Easy with Gent’s new training course
Added 02/05/2014
As part of our Continuing Professional Development (CPD) seminar programme we have launched a brand new training course based on the latest EN54-23 regulation.

The CPD course provides a comprehensive overview of the new EN54-23 standard on selecting and designing visual alarms devices (VADs). Aimed at risk assessors, building management, designers, installers and maintainers of all fire detection and alarm (FDA) systems, the training session will enable attendees to gain an understanding of the key drivers of this new standard and explore what has changed since its introduction.

The course, entitled EN54-23 Made Easy, includes practical examples of when VADs should be used and how to select the right devices depending on the environment. In addition, it will cover what specific tools are available to make life easier for designers and look at how the standard has been incorporated into BS5839 Part 1.

Donald McFarlane, Gent Business Manager for UK & I said: “EN54-23 has been viewed as one of the more complex standards since its introduction. This new CPD seminar will help to remove any areas of confusion by covering the key elements of the VAD regulations in a very straightforward and simple way. 

“We take great pride in our educational role. The fire industry is continuously evolving and it is crucial for people to be able to adapt to the rapidly changing standards and equipment by acquiring new knowledge and improving existing skills. The latest industry development is EN54-23 and this course will now make it far easier for attendees to understand.”
