Future Builders of America hosted its first Leadership Camp in 2004 at the FFA facility in Haines City, Florida. Just seven students attended the first event, but it was such a success that five of the original seven students returned the following year, and they brought friends. Through the dedication and hard work of camp committee, countless volunteers, donors and FHBA's own inspirational staff, the Leadership Camp has grown since its inception in both quantity of students and quality of program.

On April 29-30, 2024, the Congressional Fire Services Institute (CFSI) will host the 34th Annual National Fire and Emergency Services Symposium and Dinner in Washington, DC. Once again, the annual tribute to the nation’s fire service is expected to draw over 1,500 of your colleagues from the fire and emergency services. By registering, you can attend educational seminars, conduct meetings with your member of Congress, and network with your colleagues. At the conclusion of the two-day event, you will join together in the Washington Hilton ballroom to hear national political leaders paying tribute to the dedication and commitment of our nation’s firefighters and emergency services personnel. CFSI invites you to participate in this important event.

The National Fire and Emergency Services Symposium and Dinner is an event like no other in the fire and emergency services. You will develop a better understanding about the federal government’s role in addressing the challenges and concerns of our firefighters, emergency services personnel and the fire service industry. Opportunities abound to interact with members of Congress and federal agency officials to discuss both national issues and local concerns. The knowledge you will acquire will increase your understanding of federal programs and legislation, while emboldening you to take a stronger interest in advocating for fire and emergency services on Capitol Hill.

Blue Card® Big Box Workshop

Featuring Shane Ray President National Fire Sprinkler Association

The “Big Box” store has gotten bigger. There was a time, not too long ago, when we considered a 150,000 sq ft Wal-Mart Supercenter to be a big commercial building. Today, the size occupancy pales in comparison to the mammoth fulfillment centers that exist all over the country. Sizes range from the paltry 600,000 sq ft to well over 1,000,000 sq ft and they just keep getting bigger.
 
Join us for a two-day Big Box Workshop where we take an in depth look at the proliferation of these new buildings and examine their impact on the fire service. There will be lively discussions from those with experience along with an opportunity to put the ideas into actions during a stirring round of big box simulations.

TD Industries Inc
Dallas, TX
75234
13850 Diplomat Dr

Registration deadline: April 22, 2024

This two-course series is designed for anyone new to the fire protection industry, or anyone who is simply trying to learn more and advance their career, such as designers, estimators, and sales professionals. Purchased as a single transaction, students are enrolled in Layout Technician: Fundamentals, a series of self-paced On Demand Training modules and an upcoming instructor-led Layout Technician: Application course.

 

Students with basic knowledge of math, physical science, and drafting skills will learn basic sprinkler layout and detailing technician skills. All of the work elements necessary for NICET Level II Certification will be covered by the course including sprinkler selection, sprinkler spacing and location, obstructions to sprinklers, water supplies (public mains, tanks, and pumps), hydraulic calculation of sprinkler systems, and standpipe system layout, and calculation.
 

Layout Technician: Fundamentals (LTF) – A series of On Demand Training modules with instructor office hours, intervention, and support.

  • These modules focus on the various core concepts necessary to understand and function as a Layout Technician in the 21st century. Learners explore content as simple as parts of a sprinkler using advanced 3D technology, up through and including carefully instructed hydraulic calculations – all while developing the soft skills necessary to overcome design challenges with the codes and standards in hand.
  • The Layout Technician: Fundamentals course is available to enrolled students about 8 weeks in advance of the Layout Technician: Application course.
  • Successful completion of Layout Technician: Fundamentals is a prerequisite to attending the Layout Technician: Application course.


Layout Technician: Application (LTA) - The instructor-led course is offered at locations across the US, with virtual options available. The choice is entirely yours!

  • A 3-day instructor-led course that applies the content learned in the Layout Technician: Fundamentals course. Using project-based learning, students apply their knowledge of fire sprinkler layout concepts to a legitimate plan, learning through problem solving, research, and simply doing.

Registration closes 4 weeks prior to the start of the in-person session

Join us in supporting this fire protection industry-driven charity event.
 
"The Illinois Burn Prevention Association was created to raise money for children who have experienced a significant burn injury that required hospitalization. Money is raised from an annual golf event and the generous support of sponsors.

Money raised benefits the Illinois Fire Safety Alliance and its Illinois burn camp for children. Formerly called the Illinois Burn Camp, the one-week camp is now called “Camp I Am Me.” The camp is in honor of the children who attend where they build self-esteem while learning to deal with their injuries. Money raised will also benefit From Tragedy to Triumph Foundation, which awards scholarships to college students who have gone through Camp “I Am Me”; OSF St. Anthony Medical Center Burn Unit in Rockford; and Cook County Burn Unit at Stroger Hospital in Chicago.

The Illinois Burn Prevention Association (IBPA) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization."

“Keep the home fires burning” was a motto to encourage soldiers and their families during World War I. Today it would have a totally different meaning. Fires in residential occupancies are by far the most common type of fire and kill more people each year than all other fires combined. Residential occupancies include homes, duplexes, townhomes, and apartments. Residential sprinkler technology emerged in the 1970s and early 1980s in response to the U.S. government’s report called “America Burning” that encouraged the development of a quicker-activating sprinkler that could provide life safety benefits in addition to property protection. This seminar will review the history of residential sprinkler technology, identify the differences between commercial and residential sprinklers, and evaluate sprinkler performance in residential settings.

This two-course series is designed for anyone new to the fire protection industry, or anyone who is simply trying to learn more and advance their career, such as designers, estimators, and sales professionals. Purchased as a single transaction, students are enrolled in Layout Technician: Fundamentals, a series of self-paced On Demand Training modules and an upcoming instructor-led Layout Technician: Application course.

 

Students with basic knowledge of math, physical science, and drafting skills will learn basic sprinkler layout and detailing technician skills. All of the work elements necessary for NICET Level II Certification will be covered by the course including sprinkler selection, sprinkler spacing and location, obstructions to sprinklers, water supplies (public mains, tanks, and pumps), hydraulic calculation of sprinkler systems, and standpipe system layout, and calculation.
 

Layout Technician: Fundamentals (LTF) – A series of On Demand Training modules with instructor office hours, intervention, and support.

  • These modules focus on the various core concepts necessary to understand and function as a Layout Technician in the 21st century. Learners explore content as simple as parts of a sprinkler using advanced 3D technology, up through and including carefully instructed hydraulic calculations – all while developing the soft skills necessary to overcome design challenges with the codes and standards in hand.
  • The Layout Technician: Fundamentals course is available to enrolled students about 8 weeks in advance of the Layout Technician: Application course.
  • Successful completion of Layout Technician: Fundamentals is a prerequisite to attending the Layout Technician: Application course.


Layout Technician: Application (LTA) - The instructor-led course is offered at locations across the US, with virtual options available. The choice is entirely yours!

  • A 3-day instructor-led course that applies the content learned in the Layout Technician: Fundamentals course. Using project-based learning, students apply their knowledge of fire sprinkler layout concepts to a legitimate plan, learning through problem solving, research, and simply doing.

Registration closes 4 weeks prior to the start of the in-person session

It can be challenging when designing modifications to existing sprinkler systems when buildings are renovated, change use, or receive an addition.  Designers need to first understand the proposed building modifications. Such information can usually be found in the architect’s proposed floor and reflected ceiling plans.  Then they have to determine the layout and design criteria of the existing sprinkler system.  This information is often unavailable, hard to find, or requires a complete survey of the existing system.  They must also review the codes and standards to determine the applicable requirements when working in an existing building.  Finally, they must design and layout the new and/or modifications to existing systems.

This two-course series is designed for anyone new to the fire protection industry, or anyone who is simply trying to learn more and advance their career, such as designers, estimators, and sales professionals. Purchased as a single transaction, students are enrolled in Layout Technician: Fundamentals, a series of self-paced On Demand Training modules and an upcoming instructor-led Layout Technician: Application course.

Students with basic knowledge of math, physical science, and drafting skills will learn basic sprinkler layout and detailing technician skills. All of the work elements necessary for NICET Level II Certification will be covered by the course including sprinkler selection, sprinkler spacing and location, obstructions to sprinklers, water supplies (public mains, tanks, and pumps), hydraulic calculation of sprinkler systems, and standpipe system layout, and calculation.
 

Layout Technician: Fundamentals (LTF) – A series of On Demand Training modules with instructor office hours, intervention, and support.

  • These modules focus on the various core concepts necessary to understand and function as a Layout Technician in the 21st century. Learners explore content as simple as parts of a sprinkler using advanced 3D technology, up through and including carefully instructed hydraulic calculations – all while developing the soft skills necessary to overcome design challenges with the codes and standards in hand.
  • The Layout Technician: Fundamentals course is available to enrolled students about 8 weeks in advance of the Layout Technician: Application course.
  • Successful completion of Layout Technician: Fundamentals is a prerequisite to attending the Layout Technician: Application course.


Layout Technician: Application (LTA) - This instructor-led course is offered virtually.

  • A 3-day instructor-led course that applies the content learned in the Layout Technician: Fundamentals course. Using project-based learning, students apply their knowledge of fire sprinkler layout concepts to a legitimate plan, learning through problem solving, research, and simply doing.

Member Price: $2,200.00

Non-member Price: $4,400.00 Learn more about NFSA membership

Registration Closes - 4 weeks prior to the start of the Applications course start
