This 30-hour course is an introduction to the fire alarm industry, classes of wiring, codes, and installation of fire alarm panels and devices. This course is designed to develop the students fire alarm knowledge and practice with basic fire alarm components and their function in conventional electro/mechanical systems.
This course will cover how to interpret complete system layout, schematics and riser diagrams – complete with related Canadian electrical, ULC and local building codes that are based on CAN/ULC-S524 “Standard for Installation of Fire Alarm Systems.
Along with the installation of conventional fire alarm systems, the students will delve into a complete and accurate look at the installation of modern, microprocessor- based, fire alarm systems. Along with this advanced technology comes the need to look at the way we install and wire these systems. We will discuss how data is transmitted and how devices are programmed.
