5 Things About: Fire Alarm Installation Methods

Posted By Jason Unger, Thursday, June 23, 2011

Each month, we take a look at an NTS course and go through five things you may or may not know about the course.

This month, we’re talking about the course designed for individuals seeking to expand their knowledge of the installation, service and maintenance of fire alarm systems: Fire Alarm Installation Methods (FAIM).

5 Things About FAIM

  1. In this 14-hour course, you’ll learn how to design, install, service and maintain code-compliant fire alarm systems.
  2. FAIM follows the structure of NFPA 72 and is based on the 2011 edition of NFPA 72 and the 2008 NFPA 70 and provides the necessary review material to prepare for NICET Level 1 and 2 examinations.
  3. There are two certifications available involving FAIM – Certified Alarm Technician Level II (formerly Advanced Alarm Technician) for students who pass FAIM, Advanced Intrusion Systems and hold a Level 1 certification for 24 months, and Certified Fire Alarm Technician for students who pass FAIM, Life Safety Code and hold a Level 1 certification for at least 12 months.
  4. The course is appropriate for technical staff, sales personnel, business owners, fire service and code officials, and anyone seeking NICET certification.
  5. FAIM is available both in the classroom and online. 

Upcoming FAIM Dates

  • June 29 – 30, Little Rock, AR
  • July 9 – 10, Lafayette, LA
