Xtralis, like the majority of manufacturers, is experiencing longer product lead times due to component shortages. As we actively work to improve this situation, your satisfaction remains our main priority. View our current estimated lead times.



In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are now offering virtual instructor led classes.  They cover the same topics and offer the same certification as our in person classes.  Please see the schedule for a list of upcoming dates.


Xtralis offers ESDs, channel partners, end users, and consultants product-specific and industry training. Instructor-led courses are scheduled in each of our operational theaters throughout the year. We also have developed online training to assist partners in selling our industry-leading VESDA-E & VESDA ASDs, and OSID-DE and OSID-R, our award-winning open-area smoke detectors.


We offer accreditation training for channel partners who wish to sell, design, install, commission and maintain VESDA and VESDA-E ASDs. The two-day, instructor-led course is offered several times per year in each of our regions – Americas, Asia Pacific and EMEA. A single-day course on design for sales engineers, designers or specifiers/consultants also can be delivered, as can a single-day course on engineering for installation, commissioning or maintenance engineers.

For the Americas, the UK and Ireland online course schedules, registration and payment is available. For training in other regions contact us via the regional email address shown in the Need Training section of this page. Please contact your local Xtralis office to inquire about schedules and pricing.



The two-day instructor-led course equips partners and distributors to increase sales of VESDA & VESDA-E air-sampling smoke detectors and ECO gas detection. Building on VESDA Accreditation Training introduction of VESDA-E, VESDA LASER, ECO and OSID, the advanced training gives the time, tools and practice needed to implement new solutions and applications. Sessions include using the ECO Gas Detection Design Guide, advanced strategies to protect unique or harsh environments, meeting opportunities in new Industries including corrections and power generation, and the latest strategies to protect data centers and telecom. Please contact your local Xtralis office to inquire about schedules and pricing.



The optional third day of VESDA and ICAM Accreditation Training is a master class for ASPIRE, the software used to validate pipe-network designs. Topics covered include BOM, branches, air-handler protection, under floor, above ceiling, warehouse, harsh environment, atria design and high-airflow environments. ASPIRE is covered generically in VESDA-E, VESDA, and ICAM Accreditation Training, but the ASPIRE Master Class is highly recommended for those who will design pipe networks. Please contact your local Xtralis office to inquire about schedules and pricing.



This training will enable employees of channel partners to renew their existing VESDA accreditation certification by 2 years without undergoing full training. The aim of this course is to refresh all the information about air-sampling smoke detection, the principle of ASD system design, ASPIRE calculation, installation and commissioning. This re-certification training is 100% online, including registration and delivery. Upon successful completion of the course, the certificate will be issued automatically. To learn more about the ADGS VESDA Online Re-Certification Training service, contact ADGS at DesignCenter@xtralis.com.
