Sign up today for Canada’s leading Canadian Fire Alarm and Life Safety Systems training course. Our course goes well beyond the recitation of Codes and Standards. Complete with 8 Interactive Workshops on fire alarm protection systems that examine the purpose and specific application of the different codes and standards that regulate the industry. Avoid installation errors, failed inspections and false alarms! This interactive course maximizes its impact through dynamic curriculum and a learning environment that encourages discussions with other course attendees. Workshops are taught by a recognized and experienced fire protection professional who understands today’s changing safety dynamics.

You’ll bring your knowledge up-to-code with in-depth instruction that focuses on the correct design, installation, testing, and use of fire alarm and signaling systems.

Technical workshops and exercises are based on the types of challenges you encounter in the field, so you’ll leave with a wealth of practical tips, insights, and solutions you can immediately implement back on the job. This course will review the types of fire alarm systems, their selection and their applications for structures and processes. It will also cover special systems designed to prevent costly, life threatening industrial fires and/or explosions.

Upon completion, students will understand:

  • Current Industry Standards
  • Code Compliance
  • Risk Management
  • Design, Budgeting, Installation and Verification
  • Inspection, Maintenance and Troubleshooting
  • Detection
  • Alarm Signaling and Monitoring
  • Suppression
  • Evacuation
  • Emergency Lighting
  • Emergency Backup and Generators

Students will also be able to:

  • Navigate through the relevant codes to find required compliance
  • Review key changes in industry standards and codes new to fire alarm systems
  • Identify the key elements of all phases of a fire alarm system’s life
  • Identify the stakeholders at different stages of a fire alarm system’s life
  • Recognize the function of major fire alarm system components
  • Locate and apply key fire detection requirements for emergency control functions such as door control and elevator recall, security access/egress and offsite monitoring
  • Calculate the required spacing and determine the correct placement of fire detection and signalling devices
