    Default Building Construction Class

    I am from New Hampshire and I am looking to find a class on Building Construction that uses Brannigan's Building Construction for the Fire Service 4th Edition as the text book. I am not as interested in taking a course that goes 3x a week, 1hr a day for 4 months but would rather take an 8hr a day for two straight weeks class. Travel might not be an issue. Can anyone help me?

    Not sure if NFA's traveling show uses Brannigan or not.

    give NFA a call to see what they use and if it is being taught in your area

    they do both combustible and non com

    I am not trying for college credits, just want to learn more and that is the book that we use to study from for our promotional process. I will try those links but don't think NHFA offers the class I am looking for. Keep other ideas coming please.

    Read it wrong but these might still help

    Sounds like you best bet is an online course, maybe check some of the jr colleges in your state.

    here is one, but not in NH;

    http://www.columbiasouthern.edu/Degr...y/Fire-Science

    BFS 3440 - Building Construction for Fire Protection uses the B book

    http://www.lrcc.edu/Fire-Science/courses.html

    LFIR1400 Building Construction for Fire Protection CL3 L0 CR3
    This course provides the components of building construction related to firefighter and life safety. The elements of construction and design of structures are shown to be key factors when inspecting building, preplanning fire operations, and operating at emergencies.




    remeber just because the spec the book for the class, does not mean that they actualy use it or all of it!!!
