Understanding Fire Sprinkler Drawings and Calculations

1 hr. Online Course

Level: Intermediate

Item#: RV-11355AW

SME: Robert Hazleton, Jr., PE

Do you know what is required for a fire sprinkler system? The required technical fire sprinkler drawings and calculations must be reviewed and approved by the owner's representative; engineer or architect of record; building officials; and fire officials. Many commercial, industrial, and even residential buildings require a fire sprinkler system. This interactive online course will prepare the non-fire protection engineer to thoroughly review and understand complex fire sprinkler drawings to ensure a properly designed and installed system is provided and the health and safety of building occupants is addressed.
Course Objectives
At the end of this course, you will be able to:
  • Determine the applicable building and/or fire codes for the specific building type being designed or constructed.
  • Describe the primary distinction between NFPA 13, NFPA 13D and NFPA 13R.
  • Analyze a remote fire sprinkler zone by tracing the piping system, noting pipe sizes and lengths.
  • Identify areas that require special consideration including obstructions.
