Is Training Worth It?
Like most skilled trades, the fire alarm industry is chronically short-staffed.
The biggest problem is that there is very little training available.
It regularly takes 3-6 months before a new employee has enough knowledge and experience to add much value.
They are often thrown out in the field and expected to learn on-the-job.
The senior technicians who are expected to provide that on-the-job training (OJT) are swamped with deadlines and rarely have the time to teach.
On top of that, a lot of techs actually have an incomplete and flawed understanding of fire alarm technology and codes.
This leads to the further spreading of incorrect practices and misunderstandings.
