NFPA® has created a series of online courses on the 2013 edition of NFPA 72®: National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code. Take one course or the entire series and learn at your own pace!*

Understand the basics of fire alarm systems and how the 2013 edition of NFPA 72® interracts with building, fire, and life safety codes.

Learn at your own pace, on your own time, with Fire Alarm Basics -- the first lesson in the new 2013 NFPA 72 Self-Guided Online Course Series. This training provides you with a greater understanding of fire detection and alarm systems required by today's codes, and how various situations dictate different system features. You'll understand how NFPA 72: National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code is referenced by building, fire, and life safety codes and how they incorporate NFPA 72 to design, install, and maintain a fire alarm system.

Fire Alarm Basics consists of three lessons to provide a thorough overview of what makes up a fire alarm system. The course covers the basic configurations and terminology used in the industry for fire detection and alarm systems; and how environmental and system conditions trigger various signals such as alarm, trouble, and supervisory signals -- which are then used to initiate responses or behavior. Fire Alarm Basics also focuses on power supply requirements and circuits that drive and connect the building blocks of fire alarm systems.

  • Explain how building, fire, and life safety codes impact the requirements for fire detection and alarm systems
