Sprinkler Installation Requirements


There are hundreds of types of sprinklers in use today. Determining where to locate them can be a complex task. They need to be spaced properly and installed in specific locations to ensure coverage of the protected area and located far enough away from obstructions to ensure that the spray pattern can adequately develop and control or suppress a fire. The rules that govern this complex matrix of decisions are found in Chapter 8 of NFPA 13 on Installation Requirements. This fast paced and interactive seminar will guide the participant through series of decisions and requirements that lead to compliance with NFPA 13 and ensure the system will operate properly when needed.


Attendees must bring a copy of the NFPA 13 to class.

Introduction to NFPA 20 and NFPA 25


This class provides for a basic introduction to NFPA 20 and NFPA 25.  Utilizing NFPA 20, Standard for the Installation of Stationary Pumps for Fire Protection this program guides the participant through the basic operating principles of fire pumps.  Utilizing NFPA 25 Standard for the Inspection, Testing, and Maintenance of Water-Based Fire Protection Systems, the seminar clearly describes the responsibilities for compliance & record keeping. It describes the specific scope of NFPA 25 and identifies the various ways in which information related to changes in the system are handled.

Advanced Hydraulics


This program covers a wide variety of topics all having to do with making decisions regarding the discharge criteria for sprinklers and nozzles (flow, pressure, number of sprinklers in the design area, location of sprinklers in the design area) for advanced and complex situations in fire sprinkler and water spray systems.


This seminar assumes that the participant knows and understands the meaning of basic hydraulic terms such as density and design area as well as knowing the Hazen-Williams formula for calculating friction loss.  Participants not familiar with these terms and formulas are certainly welcome to take the class, but they may find that they need to do more work to keep up.  Everyone that comes to the class should bring a calculator with a [yx] key that they know how to use.


This seminar is an excellent study session for people holding NICET Level II certification in Layout of Water-Based Fire Protection Systems who are preparing to sit for the Level III certification exams.  This program will cover information from NFPA 13, NFPA 15 and NFPA 16.
