This 2-day course will introduce you to fire protection engineering fundamentals related to
building materials and design, water supplies for fire protection, fire extinguishing systems, fire
alarms systems, special occupancies and hazards, and storage of flammable and hazardous
materials. You will be introduced to the basics of using occupancy hazard classification for
determining sprinkler densities and hose streams, procedures for determining fire flow demand
for non-sprinkler-protected facilities, procedures for integration of associated alarm systems, and
procedures for performance based fire safety.
Upon completion of this course participants will be able to:
- Describe the principles of fire protection engineering that affect building materials and
- Understand the potential fire hazards common to industrial facilities and fire protection
engineering techniques that can be used to prevent or mitigate fires in these facilities.
- Understand how to provide an adequate water supply for fire protection.
- Describe the different types of systems for fire detection, alarm, reporting and evacuation
typical within industrial facilities
- Describe the requirements of special hazards and occupancies.
- Understand the occupancy hazard classification system.
- Discuss performance based fire safety design, codes and other professional resources.
Basic understanding of the principals of fire protection engineering.
FPEs, Architectural, civil, structural, mechanical and electrical engineers engaged in the design
of buildings and related infrastructure.
Participants will be assessed via a written exam upon completion of training. They will need to
pass with minimum score of 70%.
