AFSA Beginning Fire Sprinkler System Planning School PA

AFSA Beginning Fire Sprinkler System Planning School PA
Join AFSA at General Air Products in Exton, PA for our Beginning Fire Sprinkler System Planning School. The System Planning School presents a comprehensive, practical approach to preparing fire sprinkler system drawings. Students receive two full weeks of instruction, 60% of which is study and review of NFPA 13 (2019 Ed.). The other 40% is preparation of fire sprinkler system layout, shop drawings and hydraulic calculations.

This class is designed for trainees and entry-level technicians with at least six-months experience as well as those with experience in the sprinkler trade looking to make the transition to design. The students learn by actually planning and drawing sprinkler systems while studying and applying NFPA 13 (2019 Edition).

This school will prepare the student to:

  • Accelerate the comprehension of plans and various types of building construction for proper sprinkler spacing applications.
  • Determine the proper and economic planning of sprinkler system layout and installation methods.
  • Know the importance of sprinkler specifications, types of pipe, hangers, fittings, flow tests, etc.
  • Learn to develop shop drawings from start to finish.
  • Learn to coordinate with other trades - plumbing, mechanical, structural and electrical.
  • Perform manual hydraulic calculations. This prepares the student for an easier decision-making process when using a computer to perform hydraulics.
  • Prepare shop drawings in class for projects with different applications.
