Designed specifically for the security and fire installer community, our training courses will adhere to the improved competency standards and updated CPD requirements and help you build your expertise.

What will IFSEC & FIREX Training offer?

1. Courses by independent security and fire training organisations such as Skills for Security, Tavcom Training, and FIA, which will be vendor agnostic.

The sessions, from the likes of Texecom, and Hikvision, will also look at technological innovations which meet new industry codes and standards that you should be aware of.

All participants will receive proof of attendance for CPD records.

How long are the courses?

Each course will last between 4-6 hours, to ensure you receive an appropriate level of training, while also allowing for plenty of time to speak to suppliers and catch up with your peers on the event floor.

IFSEC & FIREX training has received wide-ranging backing from across the sector, with support coming from the British Security Industry Association (BSIA), Fire Industry Association (FIA), Security Systems Alarms Inspection Board (SSAIB), National Security Inspectorate (NSI), and Skills for Security.
