The Fire Systems apprenticeship helps people design, install, commission and maintain electronic systems in and outside simple and complex premises to protect individuals, homes and properties from risk and danger.

Skills include interconnection of equipment, programming, verifying performance/fault finding and testing and maintaining. Technicians will carry out planned jobs to install new systems, modify and maintain existing systems as well as respond to call-outs to repair faulty systems where they will utilise their problem solving skills. They will take a professional approach to customer service skills which include being presentable, tidy and respectful as they can often find themselves working in and outside customers’ homes as well as in and outside business premises.

It is important for Fire, Emergency and Security Systems Technicians to be able to work independently or as part of a team and use their knowledge and skills to ensure systems have been appropriately selected and installed and maintained to professional industry standards, often without any supervision, and done so in a safe, efficient and economical manner to minimise waste.

By the end of this apprenticeship the candidate will have satisfied the requirements for registration as EngTech by the Engineering Council.
