The Alarm Systems e-learning training course has been produced for eligible company users as a benefit of membership. It can also be accessed via a purchase through the EEMUA shop. The course provides an introduction to EEMUA Publication 191 and the associated classroom training course for engineers, operators and technicians.

This module is recommended for both discipline and project-focused engineers from a variety of backgrounds who want to gain an introduction to the fundamental principles for design, management and procurement of alarm systems. The course is also relevant to engineers and managers from operating companies as well as specialist contractors and equipment suppliers.

The course is primarily concerned with alarm systems provided for people operating industrial processes. These include alarm systems in industries such as chemical manufacturing, power generation, oil and gas extraction and refining, and others. 

Either completing (but not passing) or passing this e-learning course has no bearing on entry into the EEMUA-supported Alarm Systems training course, but you may choose to take this as a natural progression.
