Stay up to code with NFPA 25, NFPA 13, and NFPA 101/NFPA 80 with the latest hands-on training


As your partner in electrical, fire and life safety training, NFPA has listened to the many requests and the feedback you, our customers, have provided. To that end we’re pleased to tell you there are a handful of new opportunities on the horizon we believe will be invaluable to you and the work you do in the field.


What has your feedback told us? For one, you wanted additional dates for our ever popular and often sold out 3-day hands-on training program on NFPA 25, Inspection Testing and Maintenance of Water Based Fire Protection Systems. Second, you told us how important it was to attend the Automatic Sprinkler Plans Review class and the NFPA 101/NFPA 80 Fire Door Inspection Class. Both of these programs began as pilot programs in 2016 and were met with such resounding success we’ve added them to our 2017 schedule!


Starting on January 30, all three of these classes will be held in Cranston, RI and are being taught by the very best NFPA experts in the field. Take a moment to review the descriptions below and the dates, then go ahead and click on the appropriate link to register.


Class #1

NFPA 25: 3-Day Hands-on Inspection Testing and Maintenance of Water Based Fire Protection Systems Training


From January 30 – February 1, participants will engage in classroom learning and hands-on training in a lab setting with NFPA's Matt Klaus or other approved instructors. As a student, you’ll be able to review the 2017 edition of NFPA 25, chapter by chapter, and apply what you’ve learned on actual equipment. At the end of the class you’ll understand the scope of NFPA 25 inspections, define the frequency in which to conduct inspection, testing and maintenance activities, create an action schedule, and much more.

NFPA 101 and NFPA 80: Fire Door Inspection for Health Care Facilities 1-Day Classroom Training
