This 14-hour course, followed by a two-hour examination, provides broad training for attendees to learn proper installation and service requirements for commercial and household fire alarm systems based on NFPA and ICC codes. NFPA now requires that fire inspection and testing personnel be knowledgeable and trained, and that service personnel be qualified and experienced. It teaches both the theory and the practical application of locks, door hardware and electronic access control systems. The course culminates in an actual system design exercise based on a given customer’s specifications and building plan.
Please be aware, these are very challenging exams, and we strongly recommend training prior to testing. For a listing of ESA/NTS training being held in Oklahoma visit our schedule page. To help you prepare for the exams you will be shipped a CAT Level I manual and a FAIM manual. You can choose a shipping method upon checkout. The examinations are open book so please bring the manuals with you to the proctored exams.
