SPRINKLER LAYOUT LEVEL l CBT TEST

SPRINKLER LAYOUT LEVEL l CBT TEST

(OP)
Can anyone give me any pointers as far as sprinkler level 1 cbt test? I think they applied to the exam things that dont pertain to sprinkler level 1 layout? CAn anyone who's taken the cbt test share any tips, Thanks

RE: SPRINKLER LAYOUT LEVEL l CBT TEST

How long have you been doing fire sprinkler design? I took my Nicet 1 & 2 after about 4 1/2 years of experience..probably could have passed both after my first year. As long as you have the right material with you..NFPA's and what not.. They are really pretty simple. Just be sure to bring in all reference material allowed.

Have you ever taken the cbt for sprinkler layout level 1? If so, what would you reccomend for project managment?

RE: SPRINKLER LAYOUT LEVEL l CBT TEST

Yes I took both 1 & 2 cbt format. Project management is a little vague. I have no idea where they got the question/answer for that. The biggest issue with it I had was that there is no black & white answers on it. For example: (*note this is not an exact question on the test, merely an example that shows the difficulty of answering such a question)

You find out that the fire sprinkler pipe to be installed will conflict with the HVAC duct. Who do you contact to remedy this?

A) General Contractor
B) HVAC Company
C) Architect
D) Building Owner

Well really any of these could be correct. When your onsite and you see an HVAC guy there, you would just ask him. A lot of times the architect does the conflict coordination and owns the rights to such plans. General contractor hires you out majority of times; being that you are contracted through the general, that's who you would go to for info. Owner will also be one to hire you out at times in which case you would take up the issue with the owner. Without going into great detail of project background in the question, I feel its impossible to know exactly the right answer.

The good part about the project management is that you can pretty much bomb that part of the test and still pass no problem due to the very small amount of questions that are actually under that subheading.
