Share this content


Life safety manufacturer Hochiki Europe has opened its all-new training facility as well as launched brand new online courses to allow customers from all over to upskill for life.

The new classroom is located at Hochiki Europe’s head office in Gillingham, and is set to be a key asset in the organisation’s vision to provide world class training in the life safety industry.

The new training centre will cater for businesses and system partners who want to ensure their employees stay at the forefront of fire safety. The new educational facility will allow companies to send individuals or whole teams to attend life safety courses.

A range of application-led educational content can now be delivered via both online modules and practical face-to-face sessions, either at customer premises or at the brand new classroom. The resources and course content have been compiled by Hochiki’s team of highly experienced training facilitators, who also deliver the face-to-face courses. 

Remote product and systems training is also possible via the new training centre’s large interactive screen which includes an integrated web cam, allowing customers further afield to benefit from the Hochiki team’s expertise.

Within the classroom, engineers will be able to learn at individual workstations which feature working versions of Hochiki’s life safety system, Latitude, along with two loops of devices.

The product boards at each station have also been designed to be able to be swapped out, depending on the course the student is attending – for example fire detection, emergency lighting or hybrid wireless.

Speaking about the launch of the new classroom and online courses, Nathan Hudson, Hochiki’s Sales and Marketing Director said: “We are committed to ensuring the world is a safer place to live and work in, this goes way beyond designing and selling our own industry leading life safety products. We understand how important ongoing training is to enable our customers to be commercially successful and for their employees to be the best they can be. That’s why we are really excited about launching this new training facility here at our European head office, we are looking forward to welcoming the first cohort through the doors.”
