  • Description

    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, help keep occupants safe.

    Upon completion you should be able to:

    • Name and describe building and fire codes applicable to facility manager responsibilities
    • Recognize the major types of water based fire protection systems
    • Characterize life safety requirements (NFPA 101)
    • Identify and apply life safety requirements (NFPA 101) to increase compliance within the square footage you manage
    • Pinpoint requirements for inspection, testing, and maintenance of fire alarm systems (NFPA 72)
    • Describe acceptance testing, commissioning, and integrated testing requirements
    • Understand facility manager roles and responsibilities as they relate to NFPA 25


    Who Will Benefit:
