    This online training series is the ideal starting point for improving your knowledge about the 2016 edition of NFPA 20: Installation of Stationary Pumps for Fire Protection. The new NFPA 20 has been updated to include requirements for today’s latest industry changes and new technology -- including clarified criteria for fire pumps arranged in series, and first-time requirements for multistage multiport pumps.

    Work at your own pace through interactive courses that begin with a high-level overview of this important NFPA® Standard and the basics such as various types of fire pumps and their expected performance characteristics. Then you will move into more detailed information about pump design, installation, and commissioning requirements. Two courses are included in the series.

    Upon completion you should be able to:

    • State the purpose of fire pumps
    • Differentiate between fire pump types and applications
    • List the requirements for fire pump performance
    • Identify the requirements for the installation of fire pumps and peripheral equipment
    • Identify requirements for fire pump enclosures
    • Define critical terms and design considerations such as "balanced flow" and "unbalanced flow"

     

    Who Will Benefit:
    Sprinkler system and standpipe engineers, designers, plan reviewers, installers, maintenance personnel, inspectors, manufacturers, and insurers

    Continuing Education Credit:
    Complete this two-hour online training series and qualify for 0.2 CEUs.
