The Colt Service Training Centre: taking smoke control maintenance seriously.

The Colt Training Centre InductionIf you own or manage a building, you will know that the proper maintenance and testing of life safety systems such as smoke control is extremely important and should not be taken lightly. That is why we demand only the highest standards from our service and maintenance engineers. It is also why we are proud to announce that we have recently opened our updated Colt Service Training Centre at our manufacturing plant in Havant.

This state-of-the-art facility enables us to provide the very extensive and smoke control-specific training that our engineers require and that we were unable to find externally until we installed competitors' equipment within our facility.

Designed specifically for the initial and ongoing training of our maintenance engineers, the centre is equipped with working examples of all the types of smoke control systems our engineers would encounter in the real world. This includes Colt-produced systems, but also those of other manufacturers to ensure they can provide the very best service, regardless of who manufactured your system.

At the centre, our highly experienced technical managers deliver initial and ongoing training to our engineers. The training is not only in system maintenance, but also in regulatory updates and standards as well as fault-finding to enable first-fix works wherever possible. This means that our engineers are competent, knowledgeable and always able to advise you on every aspect of your system’s upkeep. As regulations frequently change, having up to date information from a trusted supplier can be invaluable in helping you keep your buildings safe and legal. It can also help to avoid fines or other costly mitigation measures such as perhaps needing to employ a waking watch if system maintenance is not found to be up to standard.

Training is regularly updated and our technical managers are continually monitoring the skill levels of our service engineers through a series of assessments in order to allocate training where its most needed. Only once an engineer has been trained up and tested to our high standards will they be allocated sites to attend, supervised in the first instance.

An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest.

At Colt, we recognise the importance of proper smoke control maintenance and believe that the training of our engineers is never complete – we are always looking to ensure that they are the very best at what they do. With a Colt engineer, you can rest assured that your systems are in safe hands.
