At General Air Products, we know that hands-on training is the best way to keep fire protection industry professionals and newcomers both informed and prepared for situations they might encounter while working with equipment out in the field. That’s why we’re always thrilled when we’re able to assist other training facilities in becoming as comprehensive a learning experience as possible.
Most recently, we worked with the School of Trades and Technologies at Red Deer College, a community college located in Alberta, Canada, to provide various pieces of General Air Products equipment to enhance their Sprinkler Systems Installer training room. The Sprinkler Systems Installer Apprenticeship program at Red Deer is a four-year long program in which students must complete both on-the-job and classroom training. Students who complete the program receive their Alberta Journeyman Certificate, allowing them to work in the industry. Among the new equipment was a wall mount nitrogen generator with an iGap and a Dry Air Pac on which Red Deer students can now train.
Each year, students from Red Deer go on to have successful careers within the industry, and we’re excited to be a small part of their preparation and schooling.
