Technoswitch Training Overview

Technoswitch offers training courses on the products we manufacture and distribute. The intended outcome of these training courses is that the student can successfully install, commission, and maintain equipment supplied by Technoswitch.

  • Our Online Knowledge Centre allows you to complete the theory component in your own place at your own pace!
    Enrol online, and upon successful completion of your theory training, you will receive a certificate of completion, allowing you to book a practical evaluation session at one of Technoswitch’s three offices. You will receive full accreditation upon passing your practical evaluation.
  • Webinar Theory sessions – A lecturer presents the training through web-based software. A session caters for up to eight attendees. After the theory web session, the delegate will write an examination. Once the examination is passed, the delegate may attend their practical session, where required, at one of Technoswitch’s three offices.
  • Practical evaluation sessions will take place on dates scheduled by the respective Technoswitch offices. Up to four delegates can attend a practical evaluation session at each of our branches (in Johannesburg, Durban, and Cape Town). This session consists of a practical workshop and a practical examination.

Our Conventional and Intelligent Fire Detection training courses are SAQCC Fire approved.

Payment for the relevant online training can be made using the Secure Payment Platform on the Knowledge Centre. Alternatively, if you have credit facilities with Technoswitch, the course fee may be charged to your account.
