New Seminar 
------------ 
 
We just finished a new seminar called "Jump into Fire".  It's intended
to help contractors and sales rep's understand what's involved in 
selling fire alarm services, such as testing, inspection, maintenance,
and monitoring.  It includes a review of the codes and standards that 
one must be familiar with to avoid inherent pitfalls.  Here's the 
outline:

- Don't be afraid to sell fire alarm services 
- Understand why fire protection is provided 
- Fundamentals 
- Jump into Fire! 
- What Have You Done For Me Lately? 
- Other Sales Opportunities 

The seminar lasts about 7 hours and we will probably provide a mini 
version of it as a 90 minute webinar in the near future. 
 
Contact me if you would like more information about sponsoring this or
any of our seminars and webinars.
