The Firestop Contractors International Association (FCIA - Hillside, IL), the worldwide professional trade association dedicated to the installation and maintenance of life safety firestop systems, has announced its release of a proprietary 'Firestop Containment Worker Edition' of its Firestop Manual of Practice, as well as a full education program including PowerPoint presentations, step-by-step videos, quizzes and instructor guides.

In an effort to remain the leading authority in the firestopping and effective compartmentation industry, the FCIA says it developed its Firestop Containment Worker Education program to elevate the quality of workmanship provided for this specialized trade. With the release of the new comprehensive education program, members will have access to an extensive training program and manual for their workforce that results in a thorough working knowledge of the skill and precision required for the specialized trade of firestopping and effective compartmentation.

FCIA says its Firestop Containment Worker Education Program (FSCW-EP) is comprised of two parts: the FCIA Firestop Manual of Practice, Firestop Containment Worker Edition (FSCW-M) and the Firestop Containment Worker Instructor Edition, which is the complete Education Program (FSCW-IE). The FCIA Manual of Practice, Firestop Containment Worker Edition is the handbook for the firestop field worker. The practices and procedures that the firestop field worker must know are outlined in the body of the manual.
