Drax Technology, one of the UK’s leading providers of fire alarm monitoring solutions, has launched a new Training Academy. Based at the company’s Letchworth headquarters, this purpose-built facility will provide channel partners with the practical skills to install and maintain Drax Technology’s latest generation of alarm monitoring systems, enabling end users to demonstrate compliance with all regulatory requirements.
According to Drax Technology: “We have made a significant investment in this new Training Academy to provide our partners with the networking skills needed to integrate our network-based alarm monitoring solutions with existing IT infrastructures. This demonstrates our commitment to developing our partner network and consolidates our leading position in the industry.”
The new Training Academy provides a classroom environment where practical, hands-on training can be delivered for Drax Technology’s alarm monitoring solutions and connectivity with fire panels from all the leading manufacturers. The comprehensive range of courses include alarm management principles and operator training through to specialist installation programmes such as centralising alarm management using networks and TCP/IP. The courses are customised for individual reseller partners to focus on specific manufacturers.
“We have attended several courses at the Drax Technology Academy, all of which have been run to the highest professional standards,” added Chris Williams of Oxfordshire-based Pyrotec Systems. “They have provided our engineers with the skills needed to install the latest alarm monitoring systems that deliver greater visibility of testing and maintenance data, enabling us to demonstrate that all work has been completed according to industry standards.”
