Bijan Ghayour, PE
This 6-hour course provides a technical basis, and an understanding of the various issues involved in the design and engineering of fire protection system for industrial, commercial, and government facilities. The course establishes minimum protection requirements and criteria for above facilities. These criteria are based on commercial requirements set forth by national insurance and may exceed minimum national code requirements. The requirements in this course reflect the need for the protection of life, mission, and property while taking into account the cost of implementing the criterion and risks associated with the facility. The course materials are based entirely on the Department of Defense Unified Facilities Criteria, UFC 3-600-01 “FIRE PROTECTION ENGINEERING FACILITIES” dated March 2013.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
