ITA Source: 'Sprinkler Fitter' profile.
Sprinkler Fitters (previously called Sprinkler System Installers) install, alter or repair automatic, deluge, or pre-action sprinklers, foam, fog, and carbon dioxide systems, wet or dry standpipes, inside first aid and hose pipe systems, private fire hydrant systems, fire pumps and all related equipment and cross connection controls.
The program combines technical and work-based training. It generally takes four years to complete.
As a result of the Pan-Canadian Harmonization Initiative, effective April 1, 2019 the technical training is made up of three levels totalling 24 weeks. Each level is 8 weeks. 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.
