Rough & Final Inspections of Fire Sprinkler Systems

This one-day seminar provides attendees with vital information on how to conduct the field inspections for new fire sprinkler and standpipe systems. Fire sprinklers and standpipes are installed in stages and inspections are required before commencing to the next stage. The codes require periodic on-site inspections as the work progresses, to be installed according to the approved construction documents. This work is required to be inspected and approved before being covered or before the system is commissioned. This course points out the visual and physical inspection requirements of the latest codes and standards.

You must bring the latest editions of NFPA 13, NFPA 14 and IBC or IFC.

Hydraulics for Fire Protection

This one-day program is designed to concentrate on one portion of the design phase of water based fire protection systems, the hydraulics. This seminar discusses theory and application of hydraulic calculations, the various decisions that can affect them, and how to prove the design of the system will meet the water supply available as describe in NFPA 13 by using actual problems. The program also offers various alternatives to solving a problem and shows the comparison among them, and offers some basic methods to check the accuracy of hydraulic calculations.

You must bring a current edition of NFPA 13 and a calculator with a (y)x function key.

Advanced Hydraulics

This program covers a wide variety of topics all having to do with making decisions regarding the discharge criteria for sprinklers and nozzles (flow, pressure, number of sprinklers in the design area, location of sprinklers in the design area) for advanced and complex situations in fire sprinkler and water spray systems.

This seminar assumes that the participant knows and understands the meaning of basic hydraulic terms such as density and design area as well as knowing the Hazen-Williams formula for calculating friction loss. Participants not familiar with these terms and formulas are certainly welcome to take the class, but they may find that they need to do more work to keep up. Everyone that comes to the class should bring a calculator with a [yx] key that they know how to use.

This seminar is an excellent study session for people holding NICET Level II certification in Layout of Water-Based Fire Protection Systems who are preparing to sit for the Level III certification exams. This program will cover information from NFPA 13, NFPA 15 and NFPA 16.

You must bring current editions of NFPA 13, NFPA 15 and NFPA 16.
