To help ensure that sprinkler systems are safer and more efficient, the two options offer in-depth instruction on locating, interpreting, and applying critical code concepts and criteria.
- Photovoltaic and Energy Storage Systems – Given the popularity of clean energy innovation and incentives, now is a great time to learn about the safety considerations that go hand in hand with green alternatives. Online training helps professionals working with photovoltaic (PV) and Energy Storage Systems (ESS) to minimize fire, electrical, and life safety risks and the related casualty/property damage that can arise with these installations. Upon successful completion of this series, students will earn an NFPA digital badge.
- Warehouse and Retail Fire Protection –Demand for industrial real estate exceeded supply by 41 million square feet in the third quarter of 2021, the Wall Street Journal reported.
