AFSA Beginning Fire Sprinkler System Planning School PA

AFSA Beginning Fire Sprinkler System Planning School PA
Join AFSA in Pittsburgh, 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 (2016 Ed.). The other 40% is preparation of fire sprinkler system layout, shop drawings and hydraulic calculations.

The school is designed to train a beginner to be productive immediately upon returning to work. This class is designed for those with no experience, or those who need assistance with design. The students learn by actually planning and drawing sprinkler systems while studying and applying NFPA 13 (2016 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.
