Fire Alarm Fundamentals Bundle
Continuing Education Units (CEU): 0.90
Expected Duration: 9 Hours
This self-paced online series covers the basics of fire alarm systems. The series focuses on the wiring requirements, circuit design, power supplies, and detector appliances outlined in NFPA 72: National Fire Alarm Code. Complete all nine modules and qualify for .9 CEU.
These modules are included in the series:
- Basic Circuit Design
- Basic Signal and Circuit Means
- Fire Alarm System Functions
- Heat Detectors
- Inspection, Testing, & Maintenance
- Introduction to Initiating Devices
- NEC Requirements
- Power Supplies
- Smoke Detectors
Upon completion you should be able to:
- Distinguish between the different types of alarm system functions, components, and power supplies, and smoke detectors; and, identify the NEC requirements for fire alarm systems.
- Explain how fire alarm system signals are transmitted, list the different types of signals and describe how the integrity of the signaling system and the fire alarm system as a whole is maintained.
- List and explain the devices used to initiate signals in a fire alarm system, including manual fire alarm boxes, smoke detectors, heat detectors, flame detectors, sprinkler waterflow detectors, switches indicating actuation of fire suppression systems, valve supervisory devices, pressure supervisory devices, and level supervisory devices.
