COURSE TITLE: Air Moving Systems and Fire Protection
COURSE NO: M02-017
COURSE PROVIDER: A. Bhatia
Air Moving Systems and Fire Protection
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides some fundamental facts that will prove valuable in fire emergency. It describes basic information on fire protection systems and discusses some typical preparations needed for designing smoke control systems.

 

The fire hazards associated with heating ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems are significant. Fire isn't the only hazard; the smoke generated by the fire can be much more dangerous. Protection is needed from the spread of fire and smoke due both to fires starting inside an HVAC system and fires starting outside an HVAC system. Fire performance of materials for HVAC components is required, and fire dampers and smoke dampers are needed. To provide smoke protection, an HVAC system can be shut down or it can be put into special smoke control mode of operation. Smoke from building fires can be managed by the mechanisms of compartmentation, dilution, airflow, pressurization, and buoyancy.

 

This 2 PDH online course is applicable to mechanical and HVAC engineers, process engineers, architects, building designers, contractors, facility managers who are interested in gaining a better understanding in air moving systems and fire protection.

Learning Objectives

COURSE TITLE: Overview of Fire Alarm and Detection Systems
COURSE NO: E04-021
COURSE PROVIDER: A. Bhatia
Overview of Fire Alarm and Detection Systems
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides an overview of the major components which make up a fire alarm system.

 

A key aspect of fire detection and alarm system is to identify a developing fire emergency in a timely manner, and to alert the building's occupants and fire emergency organizations. Depending on the anticipated fire scenario, building and use type, number of occupants and criticality of contents and mission, these systems can provide several main functions. First they provide a means to identify a developing fire either through manual or automatic means and second, they alert building occupants to a fire condition and the need to evacuate. The system can be designed to simultaneously alert the fire department or other emergency response organization by means of direct or relayed alarm notification signals. In addition to the alarm function, fire alarm and detection systems can also actuate other fire safety measures in a building.

 

The US Fire Administration says "Don't Forget the Smoke Alarms". Even though fire sprinklers are effective life safety devices, you still need smoke alarms. Some fires can begin as smoldering fires that produce smoke and gases but don't generate enough heat to activate the sprinklers. Smoke alarms are needed to provide warning for these situations.

 

This 4 PDH online course is applicable architects, building designers, electrical engineers, loss prevention professionals, contractors, civil estimators, HSE staff, facility managers, students, and general audience interesting in learning more about fire alarm and detection systems.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Understanding the reasons for installing the fire alarm system
  • Learning the relevant design standards
  • Learning about the various type of smoke & heat detectors
  • Understanding the type of alarm technology to be used
  • Ability to select and position relevant system components
  • Understanding the alarm notification arrangements (audible alarms, visual alerts and communication systems, etc.)
  • Understanding the auxiliary and emergency control features associated with fire alarm system
  • Reviewing the design such as to minimize the potential for false alarms
  • Learning few relevant definitions

COURSE TITLE: Overview of Portable Fire Extinguishers
COURSE NO: M03-013
COURSE PROVIDER: A. Bhatia
Overview of Portable Fire Extinguishers
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course is designed to provide basic information on the portable fire extinguishers and their proper selection, location, identification, maintenance and use.

 

Each year fire causes over $9 billion in direct property loss in US alone. A portable fire extinguisher can save lives and property by putting out a small fire or containing it until the fire department arrives. Studies have shown that when an individual is properly trained on the use of fire extinguishers, they are two and a half times more effective when extinguishing a fire.

 

Extinguishers are classified by the types of fire that they can extinguish. Some extinguishers are suitable for extinguishing only one type of fire, while others can be effective on multiple types. To help in choosing the proper extinguishers, fires are categorized as Class A, B, C, or D, according to the type of fuel (e.g., paper, grease, oil) that is involved in the fire. Extinguishers are available for use on one or more classes of fire, depending on the extinguishing agent they contain (e.g., water, dry chemicals, CO2 or foam). Location and accessibility of fire extinguishers are vital considerations. Extinguishers are more likely be used when they are readily available in sufficient number and type by persons familiar with their operation.

 

This 3 PDH online course is applicable to all engineers, architects, environmentalists, operations and maintenance personnel, as well as consultants and contractors who construct, build and manage facilities. The course is intended for everyone.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Able to identify the different classes of fires
  • Learn the various types of fire extinguishers with their uses and limitations
  • Able to select, locate and distribute the extinguishers
