BAFSA launches online fire sprinkler training centre

18 September 2023

THE BRITISH Automatic Fire Sprinkler Association (BAFSA) has boosted its fire sprinkler training offer with the introduction of a new online training centre that affords those working in the industry an opportunity to improve their skills in fire sprinkler inspection, design and installation.

Industry professionals can now select the appropriate course – and book and pay for their instruction – on the BAFSA website.

Available courses include the L2 certificate in Fire Sprinkler Installation, itself a blended learning programme that covers Health and Safety, maintaining compliance and residential and commercial installation. This qualification is part of the requirement for the Fire Sprinkler Installer Blue Skilled Worker Card.

There are also three sprinkler system design courses available. The BAFSA Basic Design (Commercial) five-day course covers the classification of systems, storage types and categories, water supplies, spacing and location of sprinklers and component selection.

The BAFSA Intermediate Design (Commercial) is a two-day online course that examines the zoning of systems, water supplies, alarms and hydraulic calculations for high-rise buildings.

Also, the BAFSA FHC Design (Commercial) four-day course follows on from the basic and intermediate design instruction and covers sprinkler designs which use the fully hydraulically calculated method of pipe sizing and water supply selection. 

Further to the above, there’s a BAFSA Inspection and Commissioning (Commercial) three-day course relating to the inspection and commissioning of commercial fire sprinkler systems design in accordance with the LPC Rules including BS EN 12845. This qualification is part of the requirement for the Fire Sprinkler Engineer (Commercial) Blue Skilled Worker Card.
