SCA set to deliver new training course
The Smoke Control Association (SCA) is getting ready to deliver a new training course aimed at building services engineers, building control inspectors, fire engineers and SCA members.
Entitled ‘Introduction to Smoke Control – A Beginner’s Guide’, this new half-day course will help delegates expand their knowledge of smoke controls, identify best practice and improve industry standards. The training session will take place on 29th March 2017 at a central London location and will feature two one-hour lectures - separated by a 30 minute coffee break - followed by a Q&A session.
The first session will be presented by Conor Logan of Colt International Ltd and will focus on the key regulations and supporting standards relating to smoke control systems, offering expert advice on UK and European legislation.
Will Perkins of SE Controls will deliver the second part of the course and he will take a close look at the latest systems, installation methods and maintenance requirements.
Will comments: “In the event of a fire, a well-designed smoke control system can protect property and, more importantly, save lives.
“An effective system can help to keep escape and access routes free from smoke, facilitate fire-fighting operations, delay or prevent flashover, protect the contents of the building and reduce the risk of damage to the building.”
Conor adds: “This new training course will prove invaluable for anyone looking to learn more about smoke control systems and the integral part they play in improving safety within buildings. The two sessions will cover legislation, performance criteria, system types and more, providing advice and guidance at the planning, design and installation stages.”
The half-day course will start at 10:30am and finish at 1:30pm.
