Next Level Design

Experienced layout technicians will find this blended learning course useful to understand the tools they utilize in-depth and gain deeper knowledge to layout standpipe, fire pump, seismic protection, and the design requirements for general storage. In addition to mastering requirements in NFPA 13, NFPA 14, and NFPA 20, students will utilize computer modeling software to apply design requirements learned throughout the course, becoming familiar with the BIM process. This course begins with an orientation and two 3-hour webinars followed by five days of in-person instruction.

Details

The course will begin with an orientation and two 3-hour webinars providing an overview of the toolsets available in the Hydratec for Revit® software to allow students to utilize Building Information Modeling (BIM) for exercises.

This is followed by five days of in-person instruction. The course is designed for those with layout experience looking to understand the tools they utilize in-depth and gain a deeper knowledge to apply the design and installation requirements for general storage, install and calculate seismic protection, layout and calculate standpipe systems, size, and select-fire pumps, and apply hydraulic principles to complex wet, deluge, and preaction systems. Seismic protection and sway bracing will also be covered in detail.

Intermediate Fire Sprinkler System Planning

 


Learning Objectives:
The school will prepare the student to:

  • Classify commodities and storage arrangements.
  • Compare installation requirements for storage sprinklers (CMDA, CMSA, and ESFR).
  • Use computer modeling of a sprinkler system to illustrate and confirm installation requirements for storage sprinklers (CMDA, CMSA, and ESFR).
  • Determine the appropriate component, installation, and design requirements for a standpipe system.
  • Recognize the components and prepare shop drawings where seismic protection is required.
  • Select an appropriate fire pump based on available supply and system demand and verify using a computer model.

Hardware & Software Requirements:

  • Required computer hardware and software for this course are included for AFSA members.
  • Nonmembers must provide their required computer hardware and software.
Autodesk is not responsible for the quality of the training offered by the American Fire Sprinkler Association or for any actions of the American Fire Sprinkler Association.

Prerequisites

Prerequisites:
This class is designed for competent trainees and technicians with at least 1+ years of system layout experience. No prior Hydratec or Autodesk® Revit® experience is required. Students should be computer literate.
