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 fire detection and suppression equipment supplied by Technoswitch.

The training courses require either full classroom attendance at our training facilities in Johannesburg, Cape Town or Durban; or a combination of online training and a practical evaluation at one of our training facilities.

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