Keeping Jacksonville Safe Through Education & Training
If you know about Sprinklermatic, then you know that the company is focused on education and training. Since 1987, the company maintains a constant spotlight on a longstanding culture of learning and teaching demonstrated by all of the hard-working men and women who make up the Sprinklermatic family.
A by-product of this passion is the development of the fifth Sprinklermatic University campus in the state of Florida. Established in November 2020, the entire facility is one of Sprinklermatic’s largest offices to date. This world-class Jacksonville training facility features a live, fully-functional diesel pump, multiple unique risers, dry pipe, flow control and pre-action, N2O assemblies, corrosion-resistant monitoring stations and a modern, media-equipped classroom.
The University is also the monthly training grounds for Sprinklermatic field and office teams. Whether you’re a superintendent, foreman, pipe fitter, designer or part of the accounting team, all Sprinklermatic team members are encouraged to join in the monthly training classes and expand their knowledge of life safety and fire protection.
Sprinklermatic University hosts backflow certification training and certification classes provided by the University of Florida Training, Research and Education for Environmental Occupations: UFTREEO. An approved education provider with the Florida State Fire College and the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR), the University provides continuing education to fire fighters, property managers, and other professional licenses and educations.
The campus environment has a long list of advantages. While the contracting industry once relied heavily on textbooks, articles, classroom instruction and in-person seminars, hands-on training continues to provide the most powerful learning experience for industry professionals. The Sprinklermatic University training curriculum gives craftsmen the opportunity to work side by side with skilled instructors and industry veterans to exercise their technical skills and expand their experience.
What’s more, students get the advantage of being able to make mistakes in a safe environment and receive face-to- face guidance which reinforces a sense of purpose and comradery.
