Finished my certificate yesterday

Saw the other guy post about getting his doctorate, well I finished my fire sprinkler design certificate from Seneca college. Supposed to be a 2.5 year course, I did it in 1 year,( one of the quickest times on record) while maintaining an A average.
Pretty pumped about this. But it's still nothing compared to a doctorate Phone Post 3.0

Congrats dude!

Well done...now go sprinkle.

I got a personal best of 814 on fruit ninja yesterday. Boom Phone Post 3.0

They still have to stamp the drawing as I m not an engineer. I m not sure if many engineers do it as well or not. It would be a lot of additional information to take in.
It was a pretty interesting course, I m already a journeyman sprinkler fitter, so there's a lot of potential jobs out there! Phone Post 3.0

Sounds like you've got a niche... good job... $$$$

Yeah, I love my job, so it was easy to sit down and do the work. Phone Post 3.0

Don't compare your successes to others... congrats bro! Phone Post



For real.  You'll never be happy if you do this.  Congrats man.

I just passed licensing for federal in finance today( i had the same license when i turned 18)but im stoked as hell. Yours sounds like not only did you kill it, you killed it fast! Sláinte, Kampai - cheers to you bro..... celebrate! Phone Post

Great job B. The more certs/training you have in anything the better. Phone Post 3.0

Thanks everyone! No time for celebrating...13 month old baby is teething, He s all pissed off at life right now..It's 2 am... Phone Post 3.0

FM or NFPA certified? I do the same here in the UK except I am a qualified engineer and we can certify our own sprinkler designs to LPCB, UL, FM and NFPA. Congrats on passing! Phone Post 3.0

Course was mostly NFPA,but I don't think there it is really specific around here. I was thinking about getting some sort of engineering degree, is it worth it? Phone Post 3.0

YES.
I work with FPE's a lot.
most often, they have someone the works for them (like you) do all the hard work then they review, stamp and charge a boatload of money.


I have one working on a VESDA system for me right now. Did you learn about those?

Learned about them in trade school, seems like a good idea for a pre action trigger. It looks like doing the engineering degree would be 5 years online, probably start looking into it today! Thanks for the input Phone Post 3.0

Was also curious on anyone's opinion of pursuing a masters in fire protection? I know Maryland university offers one online, I m just not sure of the benefits of it? Phone Post 3.0

My buddy has an irrigation/lighting business and makes bank. He has gotten a couple contracts with local home builders and already had a buyout offer from a landscaping company

Fire sprinklers my man... Fire sprinklers Phone Post 3.0
