October 12, 2016
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.

October 13, 2015
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.

October 14, 2016
Fire Pumps for Fire Protection

Utilizing NFPA 20, Standard for the Installation of Stationary Pumps for Fire Protection this one-day program guides the participant through the basic operating principles of fire pumps; the requirements for the various components that make up a fire pump package and addresses the requirements for acceptance testing for the pump to ensure proper operation.

Learning Objectives:
At the conclusion of this seminar the participant will be able to:


1. Describe the types of fire pumps and their applications
2. Identify fire pump components
3. Locate the requirements for fire pumps in NFPA 20
4. Discuss installation requirements of electric motor and engine driven fire pumps
5. Apply acceptance testing requirements for fire pumps and related equipment
