Apollo Fire Detectors expands training offerings during lockdown

Following significant requests from customers, Apollo Fire Detectors has expanded its portfolio of free webinars and virtual CPDs.

In order to continue providing its training service throughout the first national lockdown, Apollo released a selection of over 15 virtual courses in May 2020. The courses are said to have been a huge success, with thousands of attendees from over 30 countries taken advantage of the weekly sessions. Due to this success, and COVID-19 restrictions being in place once again in the UK, Apollo has released six new courses in its latest series of online events which are scheduled until the end of March.

The new courses include product webinars on ‘How the Apollo Test Set can save you time on-site’ and the flush-mounted Soteria Dimension. Also included are CPDs on: ‘Fire Safety in Healthcare buildings UK’ which has been CPD certified by the FIA (Fire Industry Association), ‘False Alarm Reduction’, and a very current topic ‘Protecting High-rise residential buildings from fire’.

All webinars are being hosted via Microsoft Teams Events, which allows participants to watch live and interact with presenters via a moderated Q&A. All registrants receive a recording of the webinar after the event, so those who don’t make the live event can watch it on demand.

Technical Support Engineer, Warren Moyle, who hosts the events said: “We’ve been thrilled with the uptake of our online sessions and are grateful that people around the world have been willing to invest in their professional development and learn more about our products. Each new course has been designed based on popular requests from the training feedback forms which has been insightful. The sessions have enabled us to reach people around the world we haven’t reached before, so this could be the future of our training courses”
