Fire sprinklers are one of the most important methods for protecting life and property. They provide protection 24 hours a day, seven days a week, even when building occupants are asleep or absent from the premises. But sprinkler systems provide adequate protection only if designed and installed properly. Therefore, sprinkler system installation is the primary focus of this training program. Sprinkler systems are designed and installed based on specific codes and standards from organizations like the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), with worker safety considerations governed by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
As a four-level curriculum, Sprinkler Fitting covers topics such as Copper Tube Systems, Stand Pipes and Fire Pumps.
