In the fire alarm systems industry, the IBC is one of the essential codes which is widely accepted across jurisdictions. This is a code which most industry professionals have heard of, but few really understand. The IBC has specific fire alarm design and installation requirements which are important for compliance and life safety.
In this course, those fire alarm requirements are explored. The IBC details fire alarm requirements based on the building type. These “Use Groups” are defined for fire alarm system purposes. Each Use Group has specific fire alarm system requirements. These fire alarm requirements are covered in detail in this training.
Students will learn:
- How to identify the specific Use Group designation based on the features of the building
- How to apply the specific fire alarm requirements based on the designated Use Group
- The requirements for compliance with the IBC.
The IBC is also an essential tool for passing the NICET Certification exam for fire alarm systems. This is an area which is problematic for many seeking this certification. This class will provide students with the information and knowledge required for success on the NICET test.
Students will gain an important understanding of the IBC requirements as they pertain to fire alarm systems. Code compliance is of significant importance in the fire alarm industry.
