Prior Learning

This course assumes that delegates are familiar with manual hydraulic calculations and principles of applying hydraulic calculations to fire system designs.

Delegates will be expected to have a sound understanding of design standard to which they intend to apply FHC and hydraulic calculations e.g. BS 9251, BS EN 12845, NFPA 13 or NFPA 750.


The sessions will be delivered using PowerPoint presentations, group discussion and individual tuition. An important part of the course is to give delegates the opportunity to practise their new skills.

Delegates will be provided with computers and software for the course.
