Tavcom Training has launched a new course, Fire Detection and Alarm System Design, aimed to equip professionals in the fire security industry with the knowledge and skills for the design and implementation of state-of-the-art fire detection and alarm systems.

Some key features of the course include:

  • System Designer Responsibilities
