Fire Sprinkler Academy

A colleague of mine sent me the following information regarding college credits that are going to be offered for training in the fire sprinkler business.    The great part is, you can take these classes at you’re home computer.  If you’re interested let them know.

  1. There is so much to learn from fire sprinklers. The world needs many more people who are knowledgeable about fire sprinkler systems. The designers of Sprinkler systems must know so much about water gravity, suppression displacement and coverage and so many other things. A person in this industry that actually takes the time to be taught about the fire sprinkler systems is worth 4 people who have learned by experience. because within a short amount of time that professionally trained person will have problem solving knowledge handed down through many years and extensive study, nothing will no one will come close to what that person can do.
    If you have the chance to learn , do it.
    The world needs more fire safety.

  2. As more and more states sign up to the new mandatory fire sprinkler legislation there is going to be a lot of work out there for skilled and knowledgeable fire sprinkler engineers so now is the perfect time to learn!

    The legislation will come into affect 2011.

  3. I honestly had no idea fire sprinklers required so much education and attention to detail. I always just kind of figured you throw them up, and let them do what they do when they need to do it! I found this blog by trying to find information on starting a firefighting career, so its good to know if something doesn’t work out there is still another career field that would let me save lives. Thanks for the information!
