“The training class was excellent and I’m happy to report I took and passed the test! The training facility is out of this world. We would spend time in the classroom each morning reviewing a section, followed by the hands-on training portion. The sprinkler trainer Jeff Beckman was very thorough. I felt something of a disadvantage in comparison with techs who had been working in the field, but the trainer was very mindful of my situation and worked hard to give me the special attention I needed. I cannot say enough good things about the people I worked with . . . and the class itself. The entire experience was phenomenal!”
–Shannon Mugford, “Introduction to Sprinklers”

"...a highly entertaining and educational experience. Stan Oman, who is a technical training manager for NAFED, oversaw the class and made sure everyone had a full understanding of fire suppression systems. Oman was articulate, knowledgeable and funny. The classroom time also encouraged verbal participation as well as hands-on instruction. I was very impressed with the facilities, the instructor and the treatment that I received during my three days at NAFED U. Thank you, NAFED and Mr. Oman."
-Matthew Kendrick, “Introduction To Pre-Engineered Systems”

"The instructor, Technical Training Manager Stan Oman, provided the class with a vast knowledge of multiple systems, both in classroom format and in hands-on format. Mr. Oman encouraged interaction from the students, which gave technicians the chance to understand the various quirks and intricacies of each system. In addition, Mr. Oman mixed in some humorous anecdotal stories that eliminated any chance of monotony in the seminar. One of the more fascinating parts of the seminar involved Mr. Oman’s detailed description of the history and evolution of fire suppression systems. The facilities at NAFED U were quite impressive to say the least. All types of systems were mounted on the wall in extraordinary detail, which allowed students to practice their newly learned skills in a hands-on format. The propped systems made it very easy to learn about the subject matter. The seminar also included a tasty luncheon meal each day, further adding to the awesome experience. The participants were all thankful for the instruction they received, as well as the hospitality that was extended. All in all, the NAFED U experience was more than anyone could have hoped for. Thank you."
-Marvin Hamlett, “Introduction To Pre-Engineered Systems”
