Micropack and exida Partner to Offer Certified Fire and Gas Detection Trainingexida logo

Aberdeen, Scotland, September 5, 2016: Micropack is delighted to announce that our renowned Fire and Gas Detection training program is now certified by exida, the world’s leading functional safety experts.

The course is the first of its kind to be 3rd party certified allowing the participants to demonstrate their competence in mapping Fire and Gas Detection systems against any specified technical practice, in addition to expanding their knowledge of the strengths, limitations and applications suited to each and every available fire and gas detection technology. 

The Micropack Fire and Gas Detection training program has been utilised by safety bodies, major operators and world leading EPC contractors for over 15 years now, however, by collaborating with exida the course content has been expanded and an optional separate certificated exida exam is included.

When it comes to Fire and Gas Detection design and mapping, compliance is critical. Navigating through the nuances of differing design standards while carrying out mapping studies can often be a challenging task and that is exactly why we believe competence and training is key.

Upon successful completion of the course and exam, the student will be rewarded with an independent certificate of competence from exida in Fire and Gas Detection Mapping, Design and Technology.
