Fire Pump Training

Fire Pump Training

(OP)
I wish to locate Fire Pump training courses; can anyone provide information?

RE: Fire Pump Training

That's from an annual class given at a state University to a wide variety of AHJ's and fire marshal inspectors in Ohio.

I don't know how many fire pump installations they had but it's a large number. Everything was represented from diesel to electric to pumps with transfer switches and even some variable speed pumps. With the exception of vertical turbine pumps they have just about everything.

The class isn't a one day class but a full five day week class with a couple days spent in classroom and remainder of time running about campus performing pump tests. In exchange for hosting the class, providing classroom space and allowing people the run of the campus, BGSU receives free fire pump tests annually. It isn't unusual to see five to ten fire marshal reps observing four tests per day for three days doing everything from laying out the hoses to taking pitot readings. They would finish and know exactly what to look for and what questions to ask. Like certified gauges... if you didn't have them with paperwork in hand the pump test was over until you had certified gauges.

Good Afternoon, SprinklerDesigner2. I have been trying to locate the correct link for the documentation you previously mentioned in your older Fire Pump Training thread. Also, do you have any contacts at BGSU that we may call about this coursr?

RE: Fire Pump Training

Check out the one day fire pump seminar with hands on fire pump flow test conducted by Chubb Insurance Company check it out at . Chubb facilities have been training NJ fire inspectors for 25 years and in 2007 opened their training center to the general public. Their 1 day seminar was last week and will not be conducted until 2014.
