Welcome to this course!!

Being in the MEP industry, I found many of the personal do not have proper knowledge of the fire hydrant system and their constraints set by the international codes. Hence, I decided to share my knowledge through the course making on this particular topic covering all the important concepts on very minimal price. I used to update and add the courses every week for the learners convenience and understanding.

This course is designed in such a way that everyone can understand the concepts easily. I tried to give live example with the help of images to make it easy to understand. However, if you have any doubts, you can send me question in group chat, I will answer your question as soon as possible.

First section of the course contains basic information about the component of wet-riser system like hydrant valve , hose, pipes pumps etc. All the required specifications & operational procedures has been discussing in the lectures. Second section contains design concepts and suggested formulas by NFPA 14. 

I hope that you would have a lot of question in your mind before taking the course but I am sure that those all will be answered after completing the course.

Thanks & Regards

I have been working in construction field for over years. I keep active myself anytime to grab new things in order to work for organizations. Similarly, I used to share my knowledge to my colleague. I always tried to make the content easier so that learner can get the the concept easily.

Since my exposure is in the field of execution, designing and procurement in construction field. Hence I know what exactly is needed to know and what not till finishing up the project in excellent way .I tried to keep my language as simple as I can with the detailed elaboration. Despite, I always welcome to have your positive feedback for further improvement of my courses as well as individually.

As far as my educational background I have completed my BTECH in mechanical engineering from Punjab Technical University and continued to share my effort to organizations and brought impacting values.

Thank You!
