Upcoming Training Workshops

factory training and certification workshop

VES has developed one of the most comprehensive and complete training programs in the industry. As a VES Authorized Dealer, not only will you represent the most technically advanced fire detection systems in the world, you and your staff will have access to this training program yourselves. Your installers and field technicians will benefit greatly from attending our comprehensive training workshops.


Our staff has designed training that meets the needs of your staff and, unlike other manufacturers we offer this training to you at little or no expense.


Technical training consists of a series of structured, hands-on software and hardware-related components at our King of Prussia, PA headquarters. Our Technical Training Workshop is designed to give your technicians an in-depth overview of how to program, install, and service the VES line of products and services. Those who successfully complete attendance at our King of Prussia headquarters are issued personalized, numbered certifications, essential for future technical assistance from the VES staff.


Workshop hours will be 2 days long, from 8AM - 5PM, on either Tuesday and Wednesday or Wednesday and Thursday. If traveling by air, all attendees should arrive at Philadelphia International Airport by Tuesday evening and schedule departing flights no earlier than 9PM on Thursday, or anytime on Friday.

Each workshop will hold a maximum of 12 participants. Call 800.274.9514 as early as possible to apply for enrollment in the class, or apply online through the training tab on the VES public website

The following material will be provided for all workshop participants:

  • Loop Explorer Programming Utility Software via Virtual Resource Credentials

  • VES Training Manual

  • USB Flash Drive with VES Product Guides and Manuals

Laptops are required.


The goal of our workshops is to provide hands-on training for every attendee. We require that participants bring a Windows laptop with an RS232 serial port; either built-in or USB serial adapter. USB serial adapters are available from several electronics stores and websites. Attendees may purchase an adapter from VES, but they must notify VES a week before the training class.
