Technoswitch offers training courses on the products we manufacture and distribute. The intended outcome of these training courses is that the student will be able to 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!
    Enroll online and upon successful completion of your theory training, you will receive a certificate of completion which will allow you to book a practical evaluation session at one of Technoswitch’s three offices. You will receive full accreditation upon passing your practical evaluation.
  • Theory web sessions will take place on the dates˚ as shown in our Training Schedule below. A lecturer will present the training through web-based software. A session caters for up to 8 attendees. After the theory web session, the delegate will write an examination. Once the examination is passed, the delegate may attend their practical session at one of Technoswitch’s three offices.
  • Practical sessions will take place on the dates˚ shown in our Training Schedule below. Up to 4 delegates can attend a practical session. The practical session will last 4 hours: 3 hours dedicated to a workshop, and 1 hour for evaluation.

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