Fire Extinguisher Technician Certification - 40 Hours

Course Description

Course curriculum is designed with two main objectives.  The first objective is to prepare a student to obtain a license or permit for servicing, recharging, repairing, testing, inspecting and/or properly installing fire extinguishers.  Secondly, students will also learn the responsibilities for oversight of fire equipment dealers and technicians, as enforced by firesafety inspectors and fire marshals (statute 633.061).  Students must bring long-sleeve cotton shirts to participate in practical exercises that illustrate these concepts.
