Experts in fire protection

For the supervision and control of installed sprinkler systems, a responsible member of the company (sprinkler warden), as well as a deputy sprinkler warden, must be appointed in compliance with VdS Guidelines. They must ensure compliance with the installer’s operating- and maintenance instructions and the statutory provisions and conduct the regular checks on the sprinkler system required by the VdS Guideline.

Laws, regulations, the statutory accident insurers and the VdS Schadensverhütung GmbH (independent German testing institution for fire protection and security - VdS) require the sprinkler warden and his/her deputy to have well-established knowledge of the components and functions of the system entrusted to them. Their qualification is an important component for maintaining the secure functioning of the sprinkler system. As for driving a car, working as a sprinkler warden requires a kind of driver's license, which can be acquired through theoretical and practical training.

The theoretical part is provided in the form of a two-day intensive seminar at one of the Minimax locations or in a seminar hotel. In the practical section we offer several hours of operator training directly on site on your sprinkler system. In doing so, the Minimax trainers proceed individually in accordance with the level of expertise of the sprinkler warden and help them to apply the acquired technical knowledge on their own system.

This training course was developed by Minimax in collaboration with VdS and is conducted with the support of VdS fire protection experts. The transfer of expertise is based on the specifications of the VdS and is provided irrespective of the manufacturer. The Minimax and VdS trainers are able to rely on their long-standing professional experience and pedagogical knowledge and skills. A knowledge test at the end of the seminar provides a guarantee of learning success to the company placing the trainee.

This qualification is recognized by insurance companies, as it is supported by VdS Schaden Verhütung GmbH (independent German testing institution for fire protection and security).

The trainings are offered in german only.
