Sprinkler Fitters lay out, install, repair, modify, inspect, test and maintain fire protection systems in a variety of buildings and settings. They work on fire protection systems such as wet, dry, water mist, pre-action, foam, deluge, standpipe, clean agent, carbon dioxide, hybrid, antifreeze, and wet and dry chemical fire suppression system.
The program combines technical and work-based training. It generally takes four years to complete.
The technical training is made up of three levels. Each level is 8 weeks (240 hours). This block of training is normally delivered through an ITA approved training institution. Sometimes it may also be met through approved training models (distance education, part-time) and/or a level challenge exam.
The work-based training totals 6480 hours. Based on a 30-hour work week this involves just over 216 weeks of training.
