  • Description

    Learn how to better locate, interpret, and apply sprinkler system requirements through 3 days of expert-led high-impact training.

    An online pre-course gives you the confidence you need to tackle more advanced learning in the classroom.

    Examine fire sprinkler system protection strategies through this comprehensive classroom training program based on the completely reorganized 2019 edition of NFPA 13, Standard for the Installation of Sprinkler Systems. Through collaborative exercises and discussion led by industry experts, learn about new industry technologies, examine developing hazards and concerns, and get the fundamental knowledge required for both the design of new top-quality installations and the assessment of existing systems.

    Learn vital basics from a real-world case study.

    This revised NFPA 13 course will take participants through the design and analysis of a virtual manufacturing and warehousing facility where real-world decisions, standards use, and solutions will be investigated. You'll be more confident and efficient in your designs, installations, and analysis through interactive instruction that engages participants in the full range of NFPA 13 application. A Certificate of Completion is available after the course upon completion of an online exam.
