NFPA 72 : National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code

  • course description:

    NFPA 72 teaches the changing role of traditional fire alarm systems and how to apply NFPA 72 for enhanced safety and compliance. Taught by industry authorities, this renowned, interactive classroom training is fully updated based on the 2016 edition of NFPA 72: National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code.
    In addition to new technologies and major revisions in the Code, NFPA®'s activity-rich training program addresses first-time coverage of Class N circuits, along with the latest requirements for initiating devices, notification appliances, control units and power supplies, circuits and pathways, and emergency control functions. It's a unique opportunity for system designers, installers, contractors, and project managers to advance and broaden their fire alarm and signaling system expertise.
