Loss Control University Fire Protection Courses

Chubb Loss Control University offers many hands-on training opportunities. The modular training series for fire protection provides a comprehensive understanding of selecting, testing and maintaining fire protection systems, by applying best practices and the latest codes and standards. 

The following organizations have approved Chubb Loss Control University to provide CEU seminars: NJ Division of Fire Safety, NJ UCC, NY Building Officials, CT Building Officials, and PA Building Officials. Courses may apply to NICET and BCSP re-certification.

Each program is either one or two days in duration. They can be taken individually or together.

The fire protection course descriptions below explain the instructional topics and feature live demonstration with opportunities for hands on.

Program Title Summary
Water Supplies & Sprinkler Systems
Course Description
Understanding water supplies and sprinkler system components is crucial to suppressing and controlling fires. Learn proper maintenance and testing practices to significantly reduce the potential for a loss. Participants conduct a water supply test.
Dry Pipe, Deluge & Pre-Action Sprinkler Systems
Course Description
These systems have additional components and some are triggered by fire detection systems. Practice testing and resetting practices of these different sprinkler systems to maintain peak operation.
Automatic Fire Pumps
Course Description
Fire pumps provide water flow and pressure necessary for an automatic sprinkler system to defend against fires. Don't wait for a fire to find out if the fire pump will operate when the sprinkler system is activated — it will be too late. Participants conduct an annual fire pump test.
Maintaining Water-Based Fire Protection Systems
Course Description
Develop a comprehensive game plan to maintain the operational status of water-based fire protection equipment including: standpipes and hose systems, fire pumps, water storage tanks, fire hydrants, valves and connections. Testing procedures, obstruction and impairment programs, plus recordkeeping requirements are detailed for each system.
Fire Detection & Alarm Systems
Course Description
Understanding fire detection initiating devices and the chemistry of fire is key to selecting the best system for different occupancies. Proper maintenance and testing can alert occupants, trigger a fire suppression system and advise the authorities, ultimately reducing injuries and damage.
Warehouse Fire Protection
Course Description
Unravel the issues behind NFPA standards for protection of storage areas. Learn how commodity class, storage methods and height impact fire protection needs for warehouses. Participants will see the effects of different sprinklers used to protect warehouse occupancies and assess the adequacy of protection for various storage configurations.
Sprinkler Plan Review
Course Description
Not all automatic sprinkler systems are created equally. Learn to evaluate sprinkler system design based on pipe sizing, sprinkler head selection, occupancy classifications, hydraulic calculations and more. Compare data with consensus standards to determine acceptability.
Standpipe Systems
Course Description
This one-day seminar is a mix of classroom and live demonstrations that review standpipe systems. NFPA 14, IBC and NFPA 25 will be discussed, as well as installation and testing of standpipe systems. Hands-on activities include dry pipe trip testing, electric fire pump test and flow test of standpipe valves as required by NFPA 14 and 25.
