Fire protection installers apply or install fire protection systems in domestic or commercial buildings.
Salaries depend on location, employer and level of responsibility.
There are no formal entry requirements to become a fire protection installer, however many employers will look for GCSEs grade 9-4 (A*- C), including Maths and English, or alternatives such as a L2 BTEC, Welsh Baccalaureate, WJEC in Construction or Scottish Nationals.
Additional training is available from the Association for Specialist Fire Protection in the form of an NVQ and apprenticeship pathway. To search for apprenticeship vacancies in your area, visit the government's vacancy matching site, or in Wales, Careers Wales.
