Western Electrical Contractors Association (WECA) Announces Release of Online California Fire/Life Safety (FLS) Exam Prep

Rancho Cordova, CA.  February 28, 2018. The Western Electrical Contractors Association, Inc., (WECA), a California-based trade association supporting the electrical and low voltage industries, has unveiled its newest online course—Fire/Life Safety Exam Prep.

This 32-hour, self-paced course is geared toward students who want to study for the California Fire/Life Safety Technician certification exam online, at their own pace. The class includes hundreds of sample exam questions, which students take in a timed environment that emulates State exam timing. Also appropriate for Journeymen electricians, and those looking to further their FLS knowledge, this engaging and interactive course guides students through the National Electrical Code (NFPA 70) as well as the National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code (NFPA 72).

WECA Curriculum Development Project Lead, Tom Thompson, has designed the course to teach students a systematic method for conquering the exam. Thompson explains, “This curriculum doesn’t merely prepare students for the exam by memorization; it teaches them how to use the most recognized resources in the industry to find the solutions.”

Student understanding and comprehension are supported strongly with WECA’s use of subject indexing as a strategy providing them with an effective way into, and through, the densely packed NFPA Codes. Borrowed from the world of academics, and viewed as a highly effective learning tool, the subject indexing approach is unique in the world of trades education.
