Basic Sprinkler Systems Design

Duration: 5 day(s)


It is an industry requirement to have qualified sprinkler designers. This course will equip delegates to design sprinkler protection using pre-calculated design principles and water supplies. Relevant technical bulletins from the LPC Sprinkler Rules will be covered, enabling you to gain a thorough understanding of key sprinkler system design requirements. 

The programme provides a foundation for progression on to both the Intermediate and FHC Sprinkler Systems Design course.  Delegates who attend the course can purchase a digital or print copy of the LPC Sprinkler Rules at a delegate rate of £299 + VAT (hard copies require a £20 delivery cost). To purchase your copy, please contact once you have made your booking. 

Delegates looking to sit the LPCB examination will need to be employed by an LPS 1048-1 approved sprinkler contractors (the LPCB examinations are not included and have to be organised separately).
