The Mobile Training & Demonstration Units have been created to enable Aico to deliver detailed Smoke and CO Alarm product and technology information, plus its CPD accredited Expert Installer training, right to customers’ doors. Information boards on all Aico technologies, such as RadioLINK+ and AudioLINK data extraction technologies, and alarm ranges – with fully functional product attached – are installed within the units, along with a virtual video tour of the company’s manufacturing process in Shannon, Ireland.
A dedicated Mobile Training & Demonstration Units web page – www.aico.co.uk/mobile-training-demo-unit – has been created by Aico which features a video about the Units, a 360° tour of one of the vehicles, along with an innovative online tracker. The tracker identifies the current locations of the three Units, with future locations listed below.
“We’ve received such an incredible response to the Mobile Training & Demonstration Units that the decision was made to launch a third to meet customer demand” states Aico Managing Director Neal Hooper. “Aico is fully committed to customer training through our Expert Installer scheme, where we provide the information necessary to ensure successful domestic alarm specification and installation. To date we have trained over 16,500 Aico customers, both in our new fleet of Mobile Training & Demonstration Units and at our Centre of Excellence in Oswestry.”
Expert Installer is a modular training scheme created by Aico covering residential Smoke and CO Alarm standards & regulations, alarm system design & installation, through to specific technologies. Expert Installer recently received CPD accreditation, making Aico the only domestic smoke alarm manufacturer to provide customers with CPD training free of charge.
