Sprinkler Talk started out as a series of short educational videos, we have now taken this idea a step further with a new Continuing Professional Development (CPD) platform where we will be hosting a free 20-minute CPD webinar every week. We will be covering a range of topics related to automatic fire sprinkler systems from the latest legislation to new innovative developments within the industry.
See below for a list of available webinars and dates, please note all webinars are scheduled for 10am GMT. You can also subscribe to the Sprinkler talk! newsletter below and receive regular updates and invitations.
The online webinars will be hosted via Blue Jeans video conferencing and all you need to do to get logged in is click the button below at the scheduled time. Once you've followed the link to the Blue Jeans page you should see an option at the bottom 'JOIN WITH BROWSER'.
