Hi Will

Can I add my own personal comments if ok.

I was happy with the announcement and its been long overdue but my excitement was dulled somewhat by the inclusion of advanced detection within the design course.

I will hold my hands up and openly admit Maths has never been my strongest subject and although I passed units 2&3 - I didn't enjoy unit 2 and I said I would not do it again. I have never used any of the radius in rectangles or tolerances to save on a detector but go by what I was taught in Unit 1 and 5839.

I found Unit 3 useful and I had to use in anger against a consultant to prove all my sounders were set to max and that his design failed due to distance from sounder , to fire door and into room.

I would be gutted if I sit a 5 day course , only to fail on the advanced stuff and this puts me off a bit. Its a shame but for me the stand out stuff I didn't like in all courses combined was Unit 2 and a tiny bit in 6.

Thanks
Graeme

I always use the graphs and tables, when designing detection coverage. Saves devices.

Nice one Tilly - you must have been paying more attention in class than me - lol.

Its just my outlook - and it may suit most folk just not that keen.

I've never used a graph or table either ....

By the time you've found the graph you've measured the drawing and plotted the detectors ......

May be ok for a perfectly shaped room normally I'm happier putting my own dots "on paper" or using a drawing program to superimpose a grid over a plan........
