AquaSAFE Qualification program

Get qualified to install Uponor AquaSAFE fire safety systems, offered on demand and online for your convenience.

Program description

Uponor has been an essential customer resource for meeting the growing demand of residential fire sprinkler systems. To support the growing demand for fire safety training, we have completely reimagined the Uponor AquaSAFE™ Qualification program.

Our newly updated and revitalized approach maintains the rigorous focus on NFPA 13D codes and standards as well as job-site preparation, installation, testing, and maintenance, while removing the need for close one-on-one contact in the field.

This updated AquaSAFE Qualification program satisfies all aspects of Uponor fire safety system installations in an online training format. After completing this program, attendees will receive a qualification certificate that satisfies any manufacturer training required by state or local authorities.
