“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.

Centennial, CO

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

This course provides attendees with vital information on how to conduct the field inspections for new fire sprinkler systems. Fire sprinklers 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 must 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. 
  
Attendees must bring a copy of NFPA 13 to class.
