Lawrence R. Eichner, PE
The US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) operates the nation's largest health care system with more than 1,700 existing facilities and a yearly construction program budget of over $1.2 billion. All design professionals involved in VA related projects need to have an in-depth understanding of the special fire protection requirements for various types of VA facilities. This online course identifies the specific fire protection engineering design criteria required in the renovation of existing facilities or in the construction of new facilities. The course materials are based entirely on the Fire Protection Design Manual, VA Office of Construction & Facilities Management, Sixth Edition, September 2011.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
