FSSA Training Program Period 4
Period 4 includes all the course listings below.
- Special Hazards Systems Drawings & Submittals
- This course will cover everything a special hazard fire protection design engineer needs to know from start to finish including how to prepare for a site survey, what to look for on a jobsite, what questions to ask and understanding on-site requirements. This course will also detail what needs to be included in your special hazard design drawings including architectural requirements, electrical schematics and mechanical working plans, agent specific information, submittal for approval, permits and approvals, recordkeeping practices and final design documentation.
- Special Hazard Systems Inspection, Testing and Maintaining
- This course will cover advanced practice and knowledge of system inspection testing and maintenance including limits of the systems inspection and test, frequency of inspection, inspection reporting, inspection & test procedures, results of the inspection and post inspection communications as well as understanding and preventative measures for non-fire related discharges of fire suppression systems.
- Hazard Analysis
- This course will provide an understanding of why hazard analysis is important, general guidelines for conducting a hazard analysis, the typical information that is collected, an introduction of common hazards found, typical fuels encountered, special considerations and special hazard analysis concerns when servicing systems.
- Principles of Fire Extinguishment
- This course will review the basics of fire science, the characteristics of fire, flammable limits, ignition sources, the different types of combustible materials and their classifications. The course also covers the extinguishing agents and technologies available for these various fire types including Clean Agents, CO2, Wet Chemical, Dry Chemical, Foam and Water (Sprinkler and Mist) and review each ones extinguishment properties, modes of application and common applications for use.
- Project Management
- This course is designed to introduce typical project management processes and tools that will assist in planning, communicating, managing, measuring and ultimately delivering small and large projects successfully on-time, on-budget and to customer satisfaction. Methods also include understanding resources required for completion, delegation of activities, being cognizant of schedule and deadlines, proper reporting, and the various steps and stages of a given project.
- Visual Inspection Of Cylinders
- This course will consider the requirements for visual inspection of cylinders including D.O.T. requirements, applicable NFPA standard requirements for clean agent, CO2 and dry chemical cylinders and overview the compressed gas association visual inspection procedures and how to look for corrosion, pitting, leaking dents, damage or other defects. This course also covers the requirements for visual inspection differences that apply when a cylinder is either in service or discharged,
- Room Integrity Testing
- This course is designed to provide an overview of the requirements of clean agent retention time for gaseous clean agent systems. This course will describe what the Blower Door Fan Test is, how it is performed, common equipment, NFPA 12 and 2001 requirements, pressure relief venting, leakage considerations, how to take measurements, exploration of common ‘hold time’ difficulties, pressure venting design requirements and calculations and common pressure changes during discharge.
- Automatic Detection Systems For The Release Of Fire Suppression Systems
- This course will review interconnections from Fire Alarm Systems to Fire Suppression Systems, compatibility of releasing systems and their components, UL 864 requirements, examples of various releasing devices and their NFPA requirements when used. This course also covers automatic release configurations, examples of system release, definition of suppression system release terms and automatic release bypass switch requirements.
- Final Acceptance Testing
- This course will describe the steps and procedures a technician must take to ensure proper functionality and operation of the installed or modified fire system. This includes information on preparation, what tools and equipment you will need, the required forms, NFPA testing requirements, discharge testing and how to verify sequence of operations and programming.
- Business Communications
- This course will encompass communication between various groups in the workplace including customers, supervisors, employees, co-workers and authority’s having jurisdiction. This course also will review electronic communication and technology, written communication skills, follow-up communications and general guidelines.
