AEGIS is pleased to offer a very limited number of seats at the popular Fire Protection System Training Class, which will be held Tuesday, October 25 through Thursday, October 27, at Oklahoma State University (OSU) in Stillwater, OK.
This three-day training class provides AEGIS member company employees with both classroom and hands-on instruction on the various types of fire protection systems associated with power generation and natural gas operations. In addition to traditional classroom instruction and practical exercises, attendees are encouraged to participate in the hands-on training sessions to gain familiarity with the fire protection/equipment that’s typically used in the power generation and natural gas industry. Casual dress is recommended for the hands-on training sessions.
The following topics will be covered:
- Power generation and natural gas operations fire hazards
- Fire pumps / water supplies overview and testing
- Fire alarm and detection systems
- Water-based extinguishing systems
- Alternative extinguishing systems (i.e., CO2, FM200, etc.)
The registration fee is $450 for employees of AEGIS member companies, which includes the cost of the three-day training class, a copy of NFPA 25 (Standard for the Inspection, Testing, and Maintenance of Water-Based Fire Protection Systems code book), the AEGIS-sponsored group dinner on Tuesday, as well as lunches. You will be asked to provide your credit card information during the registration process. Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover are accepted. If you must cancel your registration prior to the class, the class fee, minus an administrative fee of $25, will be refunded to your credit card.
A limited number of rooms have been reserved at the Residence Inn by Marriott. The room block is being managed by Oklahoma State University.
