    NFPA®'s all-new training for facility managers includes hands-on demonstrations of NFPA 101®, NFPA 72®, and NFPA 25 compliance in a state-of-the-art lab!

    Facility managers require in-depth knowledge about the potentially life-saving systems that protect building occupants -- day-to-day and in the event of emergencies involving fire, smoke, and related hazards. Developed expressly for anyone serving in the role of facility manager, this special hands-on training deepens your understanding of the critical fire protection and life safety systems in your facility -- as well as how requirements in NFPA 101®: Life Safety Code, NFPA 72®: National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code, and NFPA 25: Inspection, Testing, and Maintenance of Water-Based Fire Protection Systems are applied in practice.

    After expert-led classroom instruction and demonstrations in a state-of the-art laboratory, you’ll walk away with the insights and know-how needed to help manage vendors, provide answers to AHJs, and ultimately, keep occupants safe.
