Designing Digitally, Inc. was recently awarded a contract to create educational and engaging eLearning developments for the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). These eLearning modules are focused on the dissemination of the National Fire Protection Association's standards, specifically NFPA 13 - Standard for the Installation of Sprinkler Systems, and NFPA 72 - National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code.
Andrew Hughes, President of Designing Digitally, Inc., explained the new partnership. "We are honored to have NFPA as a client and will be working diligently to ensure that they have an effective eLearning experience for their end users. Our team will provide online education and training that will ensure the goals of NFPA are met while exceeding the expectations of NFPA and their learners."
Designing Digitally, Inc. is working alongside NFPA subject matter experts to ensure that the online training modules will engage users and teach the standards effectively. These online learning modules will be made available through NFPA in the near future.
Nick Taylor, Director of Development for Designing Digitally, Inc. stated, "It is exciting to work with such a well-known organization who is THE authority in fire, electrical and building safety. I'm pleased to be a part of a standardization that will be used all across the United States for the foreseeable future.
"We look forward to the effort put forth by both organizations and will be excited for the National Fire Protection Association to release these learning experiences to the public in the future," Taylor concluded.
