As a Fike distributor, your company is required to maintain factory-trained personnel on staff for each type of Fike system sold, designed, installed and maintained.
This document provides instructions on how to stay trained and certified as a Fike fire alarm and fire suppression distributor.
Successful completion of the Fike training program and exam results in a two-year certification.
To maintain your certification, recertify at myFike.com prior to the expiration date for each product certification you hold. Failure to maintain certification(s) for all applicable employees will jeopardize your company’s ability to purchase product or to obtain or renew a software license.
SHP Pro Training – Training, materials and certification for the SHP Pro panel are available at myFike.com.
Video Analytics Training – Videos for training and continued education for Fike Video Analytics are available at myFike.com. However, on-site training is still required for certification.
If you are interested in a Fike representative visiting your location for on-site training, Fike requires:
- a location to properly set up training. Requirements depend on product.
- all expenses paid for the trainer(s) for travel, meals and lodging.
- all shipping costs paid for items associated with the training, including panels, manuals, literature and any other items required by the particular product.
