Siemens highlights commitment to training

Siemens has made another investment into its training programme for the Cerberus PRO fire alarm system, with the appointment of Justin Leeks as a new Trainer.

Justin Leeks is a certified trainer with a wealth of experience, having worked with a number of Siemens partners, most recently with GBE Converge, a third-party (LPCB and BAFE) accredited designer, installer, commissioner and maintainer of fire protection systems.

Justin Leeks’ extensive experience installing Cerberus PRO since 2011, leads to him being invaluable in the training of others on the Siemens open protocol, EN54-13 approved fire alarm system.

Leeks said: “Having worked with Cerberus PRO for many years, I appreciate just what an excellent system it is. One of the central features of the Siemens offering is a guarantee against false alarms through its ASA detector technology.”

Despite impressive technical specifications, the Cerberus PRO requires careful installation from trained professionals.

Leeks continued: “[…] ensuring that systems are installed correctly is equally important. I look forward to working with Siemens partners, particularly in exploring many of the exciting opportunities that cloud connectivity brings and the benefits this offers in terms of installation, commissioning and ongoing maintenance through remote connectivity.”

Through the refreshed team and new training programmes, more customers will receive the full benefits of the Cerberus PRO system.

Making training as accessible as possible is crucial to effective and efficient fire precautions. Just last week we reported on the news that Water Jetting Association-approved training providers no longer have to be based in the UK, but providing they hold the necessary accreditations they can be based anywhere in the world.
