Instructor: John B. Corso is the Director of Training for the National Fire Sprinkler Association. He was born and currently lives in Louisville, KY where he is a graduate of the University of Louisville and a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps. Mr. Corso began his career with the National Fire Sprinkler association after retiring from the Louisville, KY Fire Department in 1999 with 31 years of service, the last four as Chief of the Department. He is now responsible for developing, implementing and updating training programs to improve the understanding and comprehension of all Codes and Standards relating to water based fire protection systems. He travels extensively throughout the United States and abroad conducting training seminars to achieve these goals.

Seminar Description: This highly interactive full day seminar describes the requirements for properly maintaining a water based fire protection system in accordance with NFPA 25. The seminar clearly describes the responsibilities for compliance & record keeping. It describes the specific scope of the standard, and identifies the various ways in which information related to changes in the system are handled. It describes the various Tables used in the standard, their specific purposes, and when to use which Tables. It involves the attendees in a significant number of exercises to describe various problems encountered, identify the proper section(s) of the standard that deals with it, and discuss how to deal with issues not covered by the standard that may still be encountered.
