So you are looking for a job and want to know what it takes to get a job with a fire alarm company. You are wondering if there is a special license or certification you need to do the work. Well you do need a license for a few things. Certain tasks require you to be licensed, if you are not licensed then someone needs to be near by that you work under who is licensed.
So yes you can work for a fire alarm company when you do not have a license.
Your value will be low.
On the upside, the fire alarm license is very easy to obtain. You just have to know a bit about the wiring and safety codes of a fire alarm system. Without that knowledge, you are just a helper and will stay a helper until you prove such knowledge.
How do you prove that you understand codes and standards about fire alarm systems and the wiring?
You pass the FAL (Fire Alarm License) test.
Without an FAL, you are going to stay at the lowest wage in the industry.
Though the fire alarm business pays more for the technician’s helpers than most industries out there, you still have a low value to most companies. Which makes you the most expendable person on the staff.
What you want is to get your FAL with in the first year or so, and then soon after go get your Nicet certification.
With Nicet certification, your value to most companies in the fire alarm industry is above the average technician’s pay. and the good thing here is that the nicet certification test is comprised mostly of the same questions as the FAL test.
There are currently 4 level of Nicet certification
I II III and IV
With each level of certification, you gain more abilities and greater value in the industry. The Higher the certification, the more the companies want you. Simply because you can handle greater legal responsibility and be a representative of the company when talking with legal officials. Such as fire alarm inspectors or fire marshals.
If you already have any of these licenses and are looking for a job in the fire alarm industry, you can move right along and fill out an application at TEAMWIRED.COM .
or you can check back at this page for a practice test I will be posting a link to. I intend to only charge $10 for the effort it takes me to type the questions and answers (separate pdfs). The objective is not to guarantee you a passing grade but to teach you how to use your NFPA books to hurriedly look for the sections you need. (if you want this to happen please comment below or there would be no reason for my effort)

How do I deal a lay off?
I guess I just post about what I can do and what I have to offer. As any resourceful person would do, they market their skills. Cut out the boss and charge below average fees.
such as fire alarm Templates for sale
As you scroll down the page you will see there are plenty of fire alarm blocks for sale. The more there is in the item, the more the cost. If you consider how much you charge an hour, how long it would take you to build the exact same thing and how often you can reuse the blocks, the prices are better than fair. I see no one else offering what I have built over the past 5 years, so I am offering this to the public.
I offer Building of websites, search engine optimization for existing websites and classified ads listings.
For the record, I built the website that has been holding the number one spot in Houston for “Houston Fire Alarm” in Google searches for the past 5 years. and I will have you know that in the beginning, Google was refusing that website because the last web site designer there used bad measures to get seen.
I have built websites for bands, for packaging companies, video gamers, news sites,shelving companies, hair salons, tactical gear sites and shirt designer and lots more. There isn’t a large list of companies that will stump me on website design.
If you are in Houston or anywhere in Texas and need someone to draw up a fire alarm system, message me below. We’ll work something out.
