February 3, 2016 marked a new age in the world of NFPA training programs: it was the launch of our NFPA 25 Hands-On Training Program and it was an amazing success. Dozens of students spent two days with Matt Klaus, NFPA's Technical Lead for Fire Protection, in Cranston, RI alternating time between the lab and the classroom, applying the code to actual equipment.
I asked Matt Klaus about the event and he had this to say: "It was an amazing experience to connect NFPA codes and standards to real world applications. The feedback from the attendees was that we need to have more training opportunities like this." Based on the response we received to the last class, Matt agreed to host another training session in Cranston, RI from April 12-14.
