Regardless of the type or level of certification you are pursuing in inspection & testing of water-based systems, this two-day, in-person course is designed to equip you with test-taking and time-management strategies to help prepare you for exam day.
AFSA’s ITM Technician Certification Prep Course is intended to prepare ITM technicians, having at least six months of relevant work experience, for certification exams for inspection & testing of water-based systems (i.e. NICET, NFPA, ASSE, ACE, etc.). The course includes content that primarily concentrates on NFPA 25, 2017 Ed., including ITM requirements of wet systems, dry systems, water tanks, fire pumps, standpipes, and private fire service mains. In-class review of the identification and classification of ITM deficiencies and impairments, obstruction investigations, and assessments of internal piping conditions will be included along with an overview of required safety and communication elements. Participants will have an opportunity to apply test-taking and time-management strategies during timed, in-class assessments in preparation for certification exams. The practice problems and assessments will simulate the time allotted and information that may be presented on a certification exam.
