CPD and Lunch and Learn Offering

Date01/10/2019



Continued Professional Development and Virtual "Lunch & Learn" Offering


At Johnson Controls, we place great emphasis on educating and training industry professionals including fire consultants, engineers and facilities managers about the implications of industry codes and standards. 

We have developed a comprehensive program of Continued Professional Development (CPD), where each session focuses on addressing particular issues or concerns within the industry.

The full detail of the available courses are listed below and we have a plan to increase the courses over the next two years. We also offer a number of bespoke Lunch and Learn​sessions which are less constrained by the CPD rules but offer bespoke insight to challenges associated in certain application.


Continuous Professional Development (CPD) accredited programs

The following modules are also available and are delivered as a 'Lunch and Learn'​​


Johnson Controls Introduction to Fire Detection 

Fire safety is a fundamental mandate for every enterprise, facility, campus, and municipality. Fire Detection is a fundamental part of fire safety.

In this presentation you will learn about where to obtain support and guidance to achieve conformance to standards and approvals, how to understand fire detection system categories when considering a building layout right through to component technology and system design.

Including fire detection panels, repeater panels, and types of detection for both conventional and addressable systems.​

Care Homes

The reliability of a suitable fire detection and alarm system within a residential care home is paramount as its primary function is to protect life in a building with high sleeping risk.

Unlike most buildings whose occupants are of sound mind and body, this is often not the case in residential care premises and this should be taken into account when designing the fire system.​

Disruption from false alarms can be stressful to residents and it is therefore vital that the chosen system provides effective cover, performs reliably, and gives the maximum possible warning in the event of a fire event, given the additional difficulties in evacuating residents to safety.

This Module will identify the primary hazards and identify appropriate technology.​

Education

The Requirements for installing a suitable fire detection and alarm system within a School in the UK is described within the BS5839-1:2013 Code of practice and will vary dependent upon the type and size. Some small schools may only require a manual system, whereas the larger secondary schools will benefit from having automatic fire detection installed.

Arson in schools is a problem requiring a category P2 system with detectors installed in critical and high value areas.

In schools where evening classes are held and only partially occupied a category L (Life) 4 or 5 system would normally be employed.

Schools are also quite diverse in their occupancy and therefore the fire detector should suit the environment, a normal classroom is obviously quite different to a physics laboratory or a craft workshop. 

During unoccupied periods a different set of rules may apply when the detection system will need to be at its most sensitive.

Disruption to the school day as a result of unwanted alarms can be critical, especially during examinations and so the reliability factor is extremely important when selecting a suitable system.

This Module will identify the primary hazards, and identify appropriate technology​.

False Alarm Management

With more and more fire services changing the way they work and looking at financial penalties for repeat offenders, the spotlight has focused on what we can do as manufacturers to help. 

This module will cover the topic points of our white paper which emphasises the importance of false alarm management within the fire and security industry. This presentation explains how Johnson Controls technology has been developed to make the management of false alarms more effective and how reducing false alarms puts fewer lives at risks and ultimately reduces financial burden for the businesses involved.

Healthcare

The reliability of a suitable fire detection and alarm system within a healthcare facility is paramount as its primary function is to protect life in a building with high sleeping risk and vulnerable people.

Unlike most buildings where occupants are of sound mind and body, this is often not the case in a healthcare facility. Its occupants can be less mobile, could be sleeping and many will need help if an evacuation is needed. These factors should be taken into account when designing the fire system.

Disruption from false alarms can be stressful to patients and cause panic. It is vital that the chosen fire system provides effective cover and performs reliably, as well as giving the best protection against false alarms. It should give the maximum possible warning in the event of a fire event, given the additional difficulties in evacuating patients to safety.

This presentation will identify the primary hazards, and identify appropriate technology.

Hotel

Hotels offer a complex challenge with varying room sizes, restaurants, leisure facilities and public areas all under one roof. The reliability of fire detection systems is paramount as their primary function is to protect life.

Johnson Controls systems provide the most effective cover and performance you can count on, with minimum disruption to the operation of the building and its occupants.

Most hotel bedrooms have en-suites containing bath and shower. Both of these can generate substantial amounts of steam which is known to trigger some smoke detectors and generate false alarms. This disruption can be extreme and result in an unnecessary full evacuation. Guests can be inconvenienced if sleeping, eating in the restaurant, relaxing in the bar, or in a meeting or conference. Not to mention the financial implications when guests refuse to pay or take their business elsewhere for the next visit.

Warehouse & Manufacturing

Warehouses and manufacturing plants can vary enormously in size and process, some being fully automated and some having multiple occupants at different times of the day.

Warehouse present various challenges such as industrial machinery creating fire detection hazards. Staff occasionally having to wear ear protection resulting in them not being able to hear an audible alarm. High levels of dust contributing to fire detection false alarms.

This presentation will identify these primary hazards and identify appropriate technology.

Beginners guide to PA/VA

Voice Alarm System (also called Public Address Voice Alarm PAVA or Voice Evacuation System) is one of the elements of security in modern public buildings. Thanks to Voice Alarm System it is possible to quickly broadcast information during a fire, bomb alert or other emergency and to effectively control the evacuation process of people in dangerous areas of the building.

The core operation of the PAVA is public address announcements, broadcast advertisements or background music.

In this seminar you will learn, what is a Public Alarm and Voice Alarm (PAVA) system, acoustics and the science, standards that must be considered, amplifiers, cabling and audio speakers?
