SFJ IQ L2 Certificate in Fire Sprinkler Installation Online Learning Programme


This on-line qualification is open to fire sprinkler installers who have less than three years verifiable 3 years experience of working as a sprinkler installer. The qualification is the same qualification as delivered to those with experience, although contains enhanced online learning modules.

When we say On-line ‘learning’ what we mean is ‘remote interactive learning’. What will NOT be permitted by OFQUAL Awarding Organisations is simply providing candidates with a set of slides, notes, workbook, etc, and them working through it on their own. There must be full live interaction for the duration of the course. The tutor must be able to see all candidates live and be able to communicate with them live, and two-way, ie candidates must also be able to speak. (Skype/Zoom are platforms which easily allow this kind of interaction).


This qualification for the Active Fire Industry introduces new and existing practitioners to the practical skills and knowledge required for installing automatic Fire Sprinkler systems (commercial/industrial and residential). The framework of the qualification will provide sufficient flexibility for the variations in different jobs and locations whilst confirming occupational competence set by industry. 

This qualification is approved for learners 18 and above. There are no formal entry requirements although learners must be able to work at heights. 


The learning programme consists of approx. 60 hours learning delivered online through a wide variety of learning methodologies. The learner will be able to access the learning modules and assessments in their own time and at their own pace and will be allowed 10 weeks from the time of enrolment to complete their programme.
