Sprinkler Fitters and Apprentices Local 696 is dedicated to the education and training of its members. We strive to stay abreast of the continual evolution of fire sprinkler systems and fire safety regulations. Our Journeymen and Apprentices are among the best trained in the world. Continuing Education classes are offered on a regular basis to our Journeymen to keep them abreast of changes and trends in the sprinkler industry through classes at our training center with our certified instructors.  We stay current on certifications such as:
  • OSHA 30

  • Back-flow Installation, Maintenance, and Service

  • Fire Pump Classes

In addition, our apprentices are given hands on training in our state of the art valve rooms.  This training assures that our contractors and end-users get the ‘best and the brightest’ to install and service a quality fire protection system. 

No matter how big or small the project, our members work safely, proudly, reliably and quickly to ensure that the fire protection system will operate correctly every time and that projects remain on-budget.
