Aico has reported a record-breaking 10,000 installers complete their FIA-CPD accredited Expert Installer training throughout 2022.

Expert Installer training is delivered across the UK by Aico’s team of Regional Specification Managers. The one-hour core module of the award-winning Expert Installer training covers the key information required to correctly install domestic fire and carbon monoxide (CO) alarms and environmental sensors with details about standards and legislation.

Training sessions are available throughout the UK, delivered in popular locations and onboard Aico’s mobile training and demonstration units to offer accessibility and flexibility for customers.

The course is suitable for many areas of the company’s supply chain, including electricians, fire and rescue services and social housing providers, as well as apprentices.

Upon completion of the training, Aico’s Expert Installers are encouraged to become a member of the Aico Installer Community Online – a connected platform built to support Expert Installers with carefully designed educational challenges to inspire members to expand their knowledge of home life safety devices.

Daniel Little, National Sales Manager for Aico, said: “This is an incredible milestone, providing Free CPD to 10,000 people will ensure we hit our mission statement of sharing best practices to deliver safer homes.  To achieve this, the team have been utilising our mobile units, working with colleges and various industry bodies to help us get in front of more people.”

Liam Winter, Electrical Operations Manager at Gasway, who participated in the training, commented: “The training was greatly received and equipped our staff with the knowledge, confidence, and ability to install Aico’s products. It also gave them the tools to educate our customers on the importance of fire and CO safety and what to do in the event of an alarm sounding.

“Due to the nature of the industry we work in, fire and CO safety is at the forefront of what we do, and to be able to keep our customers and their properties safe with the knowledge that the Aico products won’t let us down is of great reassurance. We also have a large portfolio of social housing landlords we work with and continuing to invest in this type of training, not only gives them the confidence and belief in us as a contractor but also ensures that they remain compliant as a landlord.”
