Apollo's online courses a success

14 July 2020

HUNDREDS OF fire industry professionals from over 30 countries have benefitted from Apollo Fire Detectors’ free online training courses available throughout the COVID-19 lockdown period.

The weekly virtual CPD seminars and product focused webinars have proved so popular that the company has extended the initial six- week programme of events into July and August, and potentially beyond.

Warren Moyle, Senior Technical Support Engineer at Apollo Fire Detectors, who has been leading most of the online training said: “We wanted to support the industry during this difficult time by sharing our expertise and technical knowledge. We’re grateful that people from all over the world including Greece, Singapore and Egypt have been willing to invest in their professional development and learn more about our products. We’ve had some great feedback and we’re looking forward to delivering the next phase of courses that we’ll be running over the summer.”  

Aimed at consultants and specifiers, Apollo is delivering online industry focused CPD accredited seminars covering topics such as An Introduction to BS 7273-4, EN54 Part 23 and An Introduction to BS 5839 Pts 1 & 6. Apollo has also condensed its existing full-day face to face CPD accredited training courses into one-hour CPD accredited courses to ensure that customers wanting to attend these sessions don’t miss out due to the lockdown.

Throughout July and August, there will also be a series of 30-minute product orientated webinars, providing useful advice and insights to installers, covering features and benefits, applications, demonstration videos and frequently asked questions for numerous Apollo ranges including XPander, AlarmSense and the Apollo Test Set.

Customer feedback so far includes: “The webinar was simply wonderful. Techno-filled experience of the trainers was very good. The Q&A session helped me to learn new things. Keep it up, you are boosting our knowledge on Apollo products.”  Plus: “Thank you Apollo, these are great sessions without spending time travelling. Your experience in the field gives us many things to learn about the fire industry.” As well as: “Very informative presentation, with good definitions of terminology. Not an area I knew anything about previously.”

All webinars are being hosted on Microsoft Teams events, which allows attendees to watch live and interact with presenters via a moderated Q&A. All registrants receive a recording of the webinar after the event, so those who don’t make the live event still get the opportunity to watch it on demand.
