Program Description

The course will present concepts and practical aspects of design, installation and maintenance of active and passive fire protection systems. This course provides key design techniques and practical application aspects related to fire and life safety engineering. It takes the learner through the design, installation and maintenance of active and passive fire protection systems which are typically installed in infrastructures. This advanced course provides the learner the experience of designing fire protection systems in line with design standards and statutory requirements. It is developed in a manner to provide information via real time case studies and design examples which will support the learner’s understanding about the design of active fire protection systems. The course also includes description about the various passive fire protection systems that can be implemented into fire safety design to ensure a fire safe infrastructure or premise.

Enables learner to:

  • An overall understanding of the concepts behind Industrial IoT and how to apply those concepts in real world applications
  • Associate the Basics of Fire, Active and Passive Fire protection Systems
  • Classify the Need, Role and Aspect of Compartmentation in a Building
  • Compare the Fire Alarm Integration with Building Systems
  • List the Codes and Standards related to Aspiration Detection System
  • Illustrate the Design of Water Spray systems
