Emergency exit light

EAL NVQ Level 2/3 Electrical Installations & Fire Alarm training course


Based on BS 5266-1 and British Standard (BS) 5839 Part 1 : 2002 (Fire detection and alarm systems for buildings) this course covers the requirements for emergency lighting, fire detection and protection systems.

These are code of practices for system design, installation, commissioning and maintenance and are standards used by fire authorities and building control officers

Suitable escape routes have to be available and easy to follow, so it is therefore of vital importance that emergency lighting is working effectively, whilst alarms should sound when required and be fully audible.

This course has been designed to provide the essential basics for new engineers as well as update the knowledge of any experienced engineer.
