The launch event consisted of five sessions each show casing new areas of the centre and Mobile Units with a celebration dinner in the evening.

The presentations and training sessions guided guests through Ember Place, a fully furnished bungalow, educated visitors on the benefits of data extraction and alarm integration and also demonstrated live fires with the use of the new Smoke Chamber.

The Centre of Excellence is a state of the art training, meeting and demonstration facility in Oswestry, Shropshire. Spread over two storeys the building houses a range of rooms designed to support customers from across the industry.

Since the Centre of Excellence first opened on 14th January 2015, over 2000 visitors have received training. 100’s of Housing Associations, Local Authorities, Contractors and Distributors have benefited from the bespoke training sessions.

With the success of the Centre, the Mobile Training and Demonstration Units have been designed to take some of this experience out on the road. Whilst customers won’t get the full experience provided by a visit to the Centre, the mobile units will allow for taster sessions and provide the venues for Expert Installer sessions.
