Tragic and costly fires, changes to codes, and greater use of Canada's National Fire Code are cogent reasons why owners and operators of buildings must become more familiar with fire suppression systems and the critical role that proper maintenance, testing and troubleshooting plays in making sure that the system works as specified, when it is needed!
This Fire Alarm System Training course is an in depth interactive training course based on a series of Interactive Workshops on fire alarm protection systems that discusses the purpose and specific application of the different codes and standards that regulate the industry. Avoid installation errors, failed inspections and false alarms!
You’ll bring your knowledge up-to-code with in-depth instruction that focuses on the correct installation, testing, and use of fire alarm and signaling systems.
This interactive course maximizes its impact through dynamic curriculum and a learning environment that encourages discussions with other course attendees. Workshops are taught by a recognized and experienced fire protection professional who understands today’s changing safety dynamics.
Technical worshops and exercises are based on the types of challenges you encounter in the field, so you’ll leave with a wealth of practical tips, insights, and solutions you can immediately implement back on the job. This course will review the types of fire alarm systems, their selection and their applications for structures and processes. It will also cover special systems designed to prevent costly, life-threatening industrial fires and/or explosions.
