Understanding SAQCC fire training

There still appears to be confusion over what is required to register for the SAQCC Fire Detection and Gas Suppression. Hopefully this article will help to clear up some of the confusion.

Firstly for Gas registration Pipe Fitter, Installer, Serviceman/Commissioner or Designer, these are all still done by assessment test. The tests are done in various centres across the country. Contact Meryl for dates and details.

For Fire Detection you need to submit certificates for the relevant training courses as per each level.
First misconception: SAQCC do not run training courses so cannot book them for you. You must contact the training companies directly.
Second misconception:
There is no single course for cabler, installer, commissioner, designer etc. see table below for list of all the courses needed per level.

      Hi Sfiso, You can email training@g2fire.co.za or call 0879409322 and speak to Pretty about our courses. If you are new to fire detection we would recommend you start with our Introduction to Fire followed by the Conventional Panel Training.
