    Default New to the field and have some basic questions please help!!!

    I'm new to this field but I ahve a business opportunity and I want to know what requirments and steps are needed to have a licence in fire prevention and safety.
    This is what I have to do. I do maintenance in an apartment complex with around 50 building. They have around 15 fire control panels that are connected to the fire dept via wireless connection.
    I'm tech inclined , electrician , and electronics are not new to me.
    I have installed multizone temperature controllers/intercoms and things of that nature so I'm familiar with this technology.
    My question is what are the steps/courses to get a licence into this field.
    Mainly the field of servicing these panels and being approved by the fire dept of my city.I know they require a licenced person so I need to get that licence.
    I did some research online but there is not to much info regarding this.
    Any help will be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks guys and be safe.

    Ask your local city, and or state Fire Marshall each city,state has different requirements. What city and state are you interested in that would help answer what is required.
