Assessment methods and criteria: Assessment of students' knowledge in the discipline "Fire-fighting water supply" is carried out in the form of current controls and semester control of knowledge, which is carried out at the end of the semester. Current control is carried out during classes and during practical work. Semester control is carried out by performing test tasks in the Virtual Learning Environment of NU "LP". The total number of points obtained for the current control and the exam determine the overall grade for the subject.
