NFPA Sprinkler Technician


NFPA is widely used in the Netherlands when the NEN-EN12845 + NEN1073 falls short. To make the translation to Dutch legislation and to correctly implement the NFPA in the sprinkler design, the NFPA sprinkler technician course has been designed.

Intended for

The course is intended for those who have successfully completed the sprinkler technician course and want to gain more knowledge about the American regulations that are often applied in the Netherlands because of the possibilities that these offer, for example, in storage security and special hazard class.

Course description

The NFPA course consists of modules 13, 20, 22 and 25 of the NFPA. The course is therefore modular and can be tailored to a specific target group if desired. It is not necessary to follow all modules to take the exam. The course focuses on applying the rules in practice.

In order to successfully complete and complete the course, some basic knowledge is expected from the participant, the Sprinkler Technician degree or equivalent is a recommendation.

Course duration and costs

The course duration is 5 lesson days from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and the course costs are € 1,650. This includes teaching materials and care such as coffee, tea and lunch (between two half-days), but does not include exam costs and regulations.
For the course, we recommend that you bring a tablet with the necessary NFPA regulations. You must purchase this digitally yourself. The use of the tablet is also allowed during the exam, which makes searching in the regulations a lot easier. For the NFPA course you need the following modules:

– NFPA 13;
– NFPA 20;
– NFPA 22;
– NFPA 25.

The costs of the regulations are described here where you can also order them.

During the exams the tablet may not be connected to the internet/wifi, keep this in mind if you may need a translation program.
