FPS Course Overview
The Fire Prevention Specialist training course from NASP provides students with the skills and knowledge to meet workplace safety needs for fire protection and prevention. This course includes emergency action plan training for creating plans for fire, first aid and other related emergencies.
Our specialist certificate course for fire protection/prevention covers the following topics:
- Exit routes
- Workplace fire safety
- Medical services and first aid
- OSHA’s Emergency Standards
Students will also learn about various agents used in fire extinguishing systems, different alarm and detection systems and components, and fire safety codes.
At the conclusion of your coursework, you’ll be required to take a comprehensive online exam that will evaluate your new knowledge of fire prevention. You’ll have two opportunities to pass the exam. If you score an 80% or better, you will receive your Fire Prevention Specialist certificate.
This course takes students approximately 13 hours to complete depending on their existing fire prevention and control training. Our FPS program is IACET-accredited, so students will be awarded 1.3 continuing education units (CEUs) for ongoing learning after completing the course.
