The Applied Sprinkler Technology Series was developed to train designers on all aspects of fire sprinkler technology and design.  It is based on the 1999 ed. of NFPA 13.  This is a 3-book series with online testing or optional paper tests.  The books are divided into modules. Each module includes a series of lessons that cover a particular topic within the scope of that module.    For an updated online version of this system layout training, visit the Fire Sprinkler eCampus website.
