Emergency Training Division has developed this Awareness Level training program on the Inspection and Testing of Fire Sprinkler Systems for Fire Protection Specialists. This includes any personnel who are responsible for inspecting and testing these systems for their employer.
Certificates of completion may be printed by the participant once a score of 80% or greater is achieved in the Final Exam. The participant may take the quiz as many times as necessary in order to reach the 80% score.
In addition, each participant must complete the training on an individual basis. If you ask someone else to go through the program for you, you will not learn the information you will need to ensure the health and safety of Emergency Response Team members. This will render your certificate null and void.

The Occupation Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires the inspection and testing of automatic sprinkler systems. OSHA also requires training for employees who are responsible for the inspection and testing of these systems. In addition, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has adopted a standard that also requires extensive training for personnel who are responsible for the inspection and testing of water-based fire protection systems. Failure to comply with NFPA standards may create liability for your employer.
This awareness Level training program is designed to meet only part of OSHA and NFPA training requirements. In order to inspect and test fire sprinkler protection systems, you will also need to attend a hands-on training program. In this Awareness Level program, you will gain knowledge that is necessary to inspect and test these systems. In the hands-on portion of the program, you will also learn the skills that are required to conduct proper inspections and tests.
