Fire Life Safety Exam Preparation (32 hour course)

Recommended Prerequisites: Prior completion of an educational program in Fire Life Safety concepts and applications, and adequate on-the-job hours to qualify to take the State exam.


This self-paced online course is for students who want to study for the California Fire Life Safety Technician certification exam at their own pace. Informative presentations help guide students through the National Electrical Code (NFPA 70) as well as the National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code (NFPA 72). It is meant for individuals almost ready to take the exam. It is also suitable as journeyman electrician continuing education for those looking to further their knowledge in the area of Fire/Life Safety. Much of the class is dedicated to sample testing similar to state exams. It focuses on practical research by the students to find the answers to code questions rather than instruction by lecture.

Learning how to effectively subject index exam questions, whether located in the NFPA 70 or the NFPA 72, will help students to:
  • Effectively find the answers to any exam question
  • Improve exam-taking speed
  • Gain a greater understanding of their field

Course Lessons Include:
  • Subject Indexing In the NFPA 70
  • Review of Several Key NEC Articles
  • Subject Indexing In the NFPA 72
  • Review of NFASC Articles
  • Review of the CAL/OSHA Pocket Guide for the Construction Industry
