CLSE Testing Center - Voluntary Fitter Testing

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 installations.
  • 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 the test.
  • Most knowledgeable candidates should be able to 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.

CLSE's evaluation test is simply another tool you can use to select your personnel. 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.
