When hiring a new fire sprinkler
fitter, wouldn't it help to have more than just an interview to
make your decision? Most contractors don't have the luxury of sending
applicants out to a jobsite to demonstrate their knowledge before
putting them on payroll. This service can provide a higher level
of input for your important hiring decisions. You may also want
to use this service to help evaluate existing employees for
annual salary reviews.
- Each online test includes 50 multiple-choice questions
that cover industry standard practices for fire sprinkler
- Questions are selected at random, minimizing
likelihood of any two tests being the same.
- Questions will
vary in difficulty; some may require referencing a standard
while others can likely be answered from memory. Other
questions may require knowledge of basic construction math
or safe work practices. A calculator, as well as
copies of applicable NFPA standards (i.e. NFPA 13, 13D,
13R, 14, 25, etc.) should be available for reference during

complete the test within 90 minutes.
- At the completion of
the test, a score indicating the number of questions answered
correctly will appear on the screen and an email will be
sent to the person initiating (and/or purchasing) the test.
Each employer must make his or her own determination as to what
level of score is acceptable. Individual test results will NOT be
recorded or maintained, nor will the results or any information from
an individual test be shared with any other organization or individual.
Test results may demonstrate basic knowledge of fire sprinkler system
installation, but do not assure competence as a fire sprinkler fitter.
Assessment of abilities rests with the employer. Neither the Center
for Life Safety Education (CLSE) nor the American Fire Sprinkler
Association (AFSA) warrant the abilities of anyone taking the test.
