The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) is a leading international authority on fire prevention codes and standards in addition to public safety. NFPA has provided training and education through seminars for many years and has recently expanded to include online learning as well. However, the association was interested in finding a more engaging method to deliver the courses through their self-guided online courses. The association was in need of a creative vendor to capture the energy projected in the classroom and bring it online through the means of online learning of safety standards.
One of the most challenging tasks in eLearning development is converting in-classroom training courses into online learning. Designing Digitally, Inc. worked alongside NFPA’s subject matter experts (SMEs) to create content and learning objectives about Safety Standards from NFPA’s in-classroom instruction material. Designing Digitally, Inc. effectively created a custom online training program for the training of standards for NFPA standard 13. Designing Digitally, Inc. extracted information learners would need from NFPA’s SMEs, who also provided guidance on what material would lend itself best to creative eLearning.
After a detailed needs analysis, Designing Digitally, Inc. concluded that six eLearning modules each consisting of one learner hour should be developed. Each module discusses the topic of NFPA 13 Standard for the Installation of Sprinkler Systems. These learning modules are intended for job roles which involve designing, reviewing, evaluating, or installing water-based fire protection systems, including designers, installers, engineers, electrical contractors, technicians, project managers, fire marshals, and architects.
