Fire department officers, fire fighters, company officers, fire department instructors will benefit from procedures that are designed to assist in developing training programs and planning effective operations. Recommended practices are given for the adequate support and use of sprinkler and standpipe systems.

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.

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

Tech Tuesday: Modifications to Existing Sprinkler Systems

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
