Fire Protection Systems
The fire protection system protects personnel and equipment from fire, provides an immediate source of a fire extinguishing agent (water, CO2, foam) to all areas of the power plant, and provides a means of detecting and extinguishing fires in critical areas. This module introduces the characteristics of the fire protection system and provides an overview of its major components
Fire Protection Fundamentals
This course covers the fundamental principles of fire science and fire protection engineering. You will learn the impact that an enclosure or room may have on the growth of a fire as well as the practice of fire protection, including the role of codes and standards. Deep dive review of two central components of fire safety design: fire detection and fire suppression.
Overview of Fire Alarm and Detection Systems
In this you will understand the reasons for installing a fire alarm system. We cover the relevant design standards and learn the various type of smoke and heat detectors. Finally we end with a deep dive on the most common types of alarm technology that is used in the industry today.
Introduction to the National Fire Alarm Code
In this course we cover the basic components of fire alarm systems. Learn the codes and standards that govern fire protection as well as specific functions and performance aspects of the various fire alarm components and systems. We will also cover how to inspect, test, and maintain fire alarm systems.
Overview of Portable Fire Extinguishers
Course provides an in-depth look at the different classes of fires. Concepts covered include: the various types of fire extinguishers with their uses and limitations. By the end of the course you will be able to select, locate and distribute the extinguishers within a facility and understand how to use the appropriate fire extinguisher.
