Information for course "NF1001-UL - Onyx Fire Panel"
Description: ONYX Series - Fire Alarm Panels
Objectives: This is a five-day program of instruction which encompasses a review of hardware configuration of the NFS-320, the NFS2-640 and the NFS2-3030, as well as intensive training of the programming principles used to prepare the FACP to specification. Programming of the system will include all levels of authorization [Basic and Alter Status functions], as well as training of basic networking programming principles. Program training of the systems will be accomplished both on a live training system and through the use of the current off-line programming tool – VeriFire Tools. System maintenance [to include system firmware upgrades] and report functions will also be covered.
Emphasis will be placed on the available means of Control-By-Event (CBE) programming with the use of the various types of applicable software zones. Network function training will be limited to the capability of Cooperative Control-By-Event (CCBE) programming specific to the particular system.
NOTE: Voice evacuation training will not be a part of this course. It is a separately scheduled program of instruction.
1. Have a working knowledge of basic fire alarm systems.
2. Be familiar with basic computer functions, such as copy, paste, search, etc.
3. Complete the online prerequisite course prior to attending the instructor-led portion of the class.
4. Have an understanding of Boolean Algebraic concepts and experience in programming fire panels.
5. Have a working version of the latest Notifier Verifire tools software (unlicensed) installed on the laptop brought to class.
Assessment: Evaluation of students understanding will be accomplished by combining the scores of the programming projects furnished [weighted at 30%], the written final examination [weighted at 50%], training attendance [weighted 10%] and the written quiz [weighted at 10%] to establish a final course grade, which must be 75% or higher. The written final examination must also have a score of 65% or higher.
NOTE: It is mandatory for the students to perform the "ONLINE FEEDBACK" on the last day of the class.
Other information: All classes will be conducted 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM (local time), unless otherwise noted. The instructor reserves the right to make changes to the daily schedule during the course, as needed. IMPORTANT NOTES: Notifier MEA suggests that attending students NOT make air travel arrangements back to their home location before 7:00PM (local time) on the final day of the class. It is strongly recommended that airfare travel arrangements made be refundable in case of class cancellation.
