The Training Plan:
- There will be total 11 training modules and each module will be for one week (except module for fire protection system II will be for two weeks).
- The daily teaching hours for each training module will be six hours daily so total hours for each module will be 30 hours.
The modules will also be scheduled during whole year to make it easy for engineers and technicians to attend at different times as per their convenience from work hours and commitment with job. Those who will complete all modules will be awarded with certificate.

(1) Fire Behavior and Combustion
This course explores the theories and fundamentals of how and why fire starts, spreads, and is controlled. Following an overview of chemistry and physics of fire, the students are taught in basics of heat transfer, combustion processes, and fire extinguishment chemistry, common fire extinguishing agents, fire characteristics of gaseous, liquid and solid combustibles.
(2) Hazardous Materials Chemistry
This course deals with basic chemistry relating to the categories of hazardous materials including recognition, identification, reactivity, and health hazards. Students are taught in MSDS, NFPA system of identifying potential hazards, and impact of heat on human body.
(3) Life Safety Principles
The course introduces the fundamentals of Life Safety in buildings. This course addresses the basic measurements shall be considered such as construction, occupancy specifications & protection elements necessary to reduce & mitigate the danger to lives from the effect of fire & combustion products like smoke, heat & extremely toxic gases. The course enhances the understanding of how to perform means of egress prediction & calculation & required ITM program to be carried to ensure safety of lives & buildings.
(4) Building Construction for Fire Protection
This course provides the components of building construction related to firefighter and life safety. The elements of construction and design of structures are shown to be key factors when inspecting buildings, preplanning fire operations, and operating at emergencies.
(5) Fire Alarm Signaling System
This course enables students to acquire knowledge and hands-on experience in modern fire alarm technology, such as fire signatures, emergency communication systems, fire alarm components and circuits, fire alarm signal initiation, fire alarm transmission and processing methods, fire detection system design. Students learn to prepare fire alarm signaling system engineering documents and plan review.
(6) Fire Protection Hydraulics and Water Supply Analysis
The course provides understanding of use of water in fire protection, and the hydraulic principles in analyzing and solving problems which may occur in water supply systems. Topics include water supply systems, industrial fire pumps and their installation, fire pump testing and maintenance, calculations for automatic sprinkler systems.
(7) Fire Protection Systems I
This first course of a two-part fire protection systems course will familiarize the students with the various types of fire protection systems found in public and private buildings. Students get an overview of fire detection and suppression systems and are taught in components of the systems comprising detection and alarm systems, smoke management systems, the water supply systems complete with fire pumps.
(8) Fire Protection Systems II
This second course of a two-part fire protection systems course will familiarize the students with the various types of fire protection systems found in public and private buildings. Students are taught in various fire suppression systems such as automatic sprinkler systems, special extinguishing systems, and portable fire extinguishers.
(9) Fire Protection Design
In this course students will prepare code compliant working drawings and perform calculations of sprinkler systems using advanced software packages. They will also learn of the methodical approaches in the design and calculations of commonly encountered fire protection systems.
(10) Principles of Fire Prevention and Code Enforcement
This course provides students with the fundamental knowledge of the role of code enforcement in a comprehensive fire prevention program. Students will learn to identify appropriate codes to requirements of the built environment, and the professional development process for the code enforcement practitioners.
(11) Fire Plans Review
In this course the students learn the application of relevant fire codes and standards to a building's fire protection features which include design of fire alarm systems, water-based fire suppression systems, special hazard fire suppression systems, water supply for fire protection and egress arrangement through the evaluation of 2D drawings and schematics.
