Full course description
Since the first publication of the International Building Code in the year 2000, many cities, counties and states have adopted the International set of codes for use in their jurisdictions. This seminar will use the 2009 edition as the basis of instruction and will concentrate on the provisions directed toward building fire safety.
The course will provide a good foundation for those using the International building code as the basis for building design with respect to the fire protection requirements as well as for those with plan review and code enforcement responsibilities. Topics covered will include Use Group classifications, Construction classification, height and area limits, means of egress requirements and requirements for fire extinguishing and fire alarm and detection systems. The course is particularly suitable for providing professional development hours for professional engineers and architects and Professional Development credit for those maintaining NICET certification.
