The F01 Fireguard Certificate of Fitness license is required by individuals, employed by building owners, who are responsible for watches in buildings with temporary malfunctioning fire detection and fire suppression systems. Certification is issued by the FDNY after passing an exam (70% or higher), consisting of 20 multiple-choice questions.
Our 3-hour test prep course prepares you by going over parts of the NYC Fire Code that are covered on the test. These sections (401.3, 408, 901,906) of the Code define specific duties of fire guards performing duties when mandated fire protection systems are out of service.
F01 Topics include:
Required fire emergency preparedness plans
Fire drill requirements
Building fire protection systems
Portable fire extinguishers
F01 Practice Tests
After going over the material covered on the test, we then go through practice tests issued by the FDNY. These help you prepare for the types of questions that are on the test so you will be better able to answer all 20 questions within the 30-minute time limit.
