About Zzeus Training

Our story so far...

ZZEUS Training is headed by Dr Tom Brookes CEng, who runs a successful award-winning fire protection company and is also the Chairman of the Fire and Security Association, the specialist division of the Electrical Contractors Association (ECA). Tom has been training fire alarm engineers since 2002, both the theory and legislation and on a practical level.

He is a leading figure within the fire alarm industry, currently sitting on eight British Standard Institute committees, being involved in writing, and updating BS5839-1 since 2006, giving him a clear understanding of the standard rather than an interpretation of the standard.

Tom has a PhD with his dissertation, Creation of pathways for the professional recognition of fire alarm engineers in the UK, gaining maximum credits; he has recently become the first Chartered Engineer in the UK based solely on fire alarm knowledge and skills and is keen to help other fire alarm engineers gain professional recognition.

All training has been developed for engineers by a practicing fire alarm engineer and not academics, therefore using vast experience and a logical mind to solve fire safety issues and faults within commercial buildings, transferring this into the program of study and practical training.

Many of the engineers trained by Tom have gone on to successful self employment, managing fire companies and going forward with the skills to pass the brand new EAL Level 3 BS5839-1 examination as well as passing the BAFE third party assessments to SP203.

Training is carried out in our purpose built training rooms installed with fully working fire alarm panels and attached Apollo devices for your practical training.


All our training courses are approved for CPD hours and recognised accordingly by ECS for the fire alarm ECS card.
