FIT Level 1

Firestop is widely recognized as a problematic issue for facilities engineering professionals. It is perhaps the most misapplied and misunderstood segment on life-safety in modern construction, especially with the constant changes made to voice and data cabling.

This comprehensive, competency-based course is designed to educate and train participants in the fundamentals needed to become a resident firestop specialist. This course is excellent for designers, installers, code compliance officers and anyone seeking a basic understanding of firestopping.

Who Should Attend?

Maintenance and engineering managers, IS managers, CE managers, infectious control managers, life-safety officers, loss reduction specialists and other interested parties.

Firestop products are highly dependent on proper design and installation for success in an actual fire. They are the only code required life-safety items installed by every trade. In response to the growing demand for training Specified Technologies Inc. has developed a competency-based training program.
