    Chubb Loss Control University would like to thank everyone that attended one of our fire lab courses this year. We have had a great response to several of our

    classes, so much so that we have had to turn some away who wished to attend. Thus, due to overwhelming demand, the following courses are being re-offered and

    added to Chubb's Loss Control University November schedule:

    Module 3: Fire Pumps November 15

    8:30 - 4:30

    Module 2: Dry Pipe, Deluge and Pre-action Sprinkler Systems November 16 8:30 - 4:30

    Please note: Because these are additional classes, and not part of our regular schedule, these classes will not be held if we do not have at least 15 attendees

    per class. We will make the decision to hold or cancel the class based on the number of attendees registered as of November 2. Therefore, please get your

    registration in early! We will not require payment until we confirm the class is being held. All classes are held at Chubb's Fire Lab, 15 Mountain View Rd,

    Warren, NJ 07059.

    Space is also available in Module 4: Water Based Fire Protection. This is a 2 day course being offered November 13 and 14 from 8:30 - 4:30.

    Courses provide contact hours which can be used towards NICET, CSP and CFPS designations. We are also an AIA certified provider.

    To register please complete the registration form on the web site and send to Michele Shedlock at mshedlock@chubb.com Responses need to be received by
