At the end of the training course, participants would be able to:
1. Understand the Risk Management Process and Major causes of Fire Losses
2. Understand the principles of combustion, fire behavior
3. Identify the possible causes of fire and explosion (gas and dust) like static electricity
4. Minimize these causes and design of active wet systems in case to mitigate the potential losses
5. Understand the incentives provided by the insurance company for the installation of active wet systems, up to 70% discounts on the premium
6. Able to design fire pumps and pipe sizing of the wet systems (jockey and duty pump for hydrant ring main, wet riser, sprinkler)
7. MS1910:2006 Fixed Firefighting systems – Automatic Sprinkler Systems Design, Installation and Maintenance, able to design a Pre-Calculated Sprinkler system for Ordinary Hazard and selection of orifice plate
8. Understand the difference between Clean and Non-clean gaseous suppression systems and its application
9. Able to conduct a fire pump flow test using a Pitot tube and its applicable formula

Note: Participants are required to bring along a scientific calculator to work on the case studies.

Course contents:
1. ISO 3100 Risk Management Standard, Fire risk assessment steps and Risk Treatment that follows, 2 case study of actual fire losses
2. The 3 types of fuels expected in fire situation
3. The various heat sources which would ignite a fire or an explosion. Static electricity which is the invincible potential heat source underestimated by many. An actual fatal incident due to static electricity as a case study
4. Explosion hazards
5. Concept of pre-calculated sprinkler design in accordance to MS1910:2006 Fixed Firefighting Systems-Automatic Sprinkler Systems-Design, Installation and Maintenance, case study to apply the knowledge in designing the system
6. Determine the pump size of each of the wet systems including jockey pump
7. A case study on conducting a pump flow test using pitot tube to determine the pump curve.
