Introduction to Fire Sprinklers, Standpipes and Fire Pumps


Knowing the various types of fire protection systems that go into a building is the key to understanding their role in protecting property and lives. This program will take the participant through the various components of sprinkler systems, fire pumps and standpipes and discuss how the systems work individually and collectively to provide protection from fire in buildings. Starting with a bit of history on these systems the seminar covers the type of systems, types of sprinklers, pump types and components, terms and basic definitions used in NFPA 13, 14 and 20. 

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

  1. Identify the components of fire sprinkler systems
  2. Identify the components of fire pumps and drivers
  3. Identify the components of a standpipe system
  4. Discuss how these three systems interact to provide water-based fire protection within a building.
  5. Discuss the importance of inspection, testing and maintenance

Participants must bring current copies of NFPA 13, 14 & 20 to class.

Sprinkler System Installation Requirements 


There are hundreds of types of sprinklers in use today. Determining where to locate them can be a complex task. They need to be spaced properly and installed in specific locations to ensure coverage of the protected area and located far enough away from obstructions to ensure that the spray pattern can adequately develop and control or suppress a fire. The rules that govern this complex matrix of decisions are found in Chapter 8 of NFPA 13 on Installation Requirements. This fast paced and interactive seminar will guide the participant through series of decisions and requirements that lead to compliance with NFPA 13 and ensure the system will operate properly when needed.


Attendees should bring a copy of the NFPA 13 to class.

Rough and Final Inspections for the Fire Sprinkler System


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.

Bring latest edition of NFPA 13, NFPA 14 and IBC or IFC to presentation.
