    Learn how you can help improve construction site fire safety and earn the digital NFPA® Gold Badge verifying your training and proficiency as a fire prevention program manager.

    Construction fires risk lives and cause millions of dollars in damages each year. Building and life safety codes require compliance with NFPA 241, Standard for Safeguarding Construction, Alteration, and Demolition Operations, which calls for construction projects to have a fire prevention program and a designated manager to enforce it. The Fire Prevention Program Manager Online Training Series focuses on the fundamental knowledge and skills necessary to assume the duties of a fire prevention program manager (FPPM).

    This five-part online learning series helps professionals new to maintaining fire safety on construction sites improve their understanding of the role and responsibilities of their job. The combination training and digital badge program also provides construction companies, building owners, enforcers, and supervisors with validation that designated personnel are capable of managing an effective fire prevention program to assist in ensuring business continuity on construction sites.
