Plumbing & Fire Fighting Systems - IPC & NFPA (Design & Drafting)


PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Plumbing & Fire Fighting Systems - IPC & NFPA (Design & Drafting)


This is a fast-paced program designed to present all major topics relative to the Plumbing & Fire Fighting Systems Design & Drafting per IPC & NFPA.


The program duration is 25 days of Full time Instruction consisting of concept theory, problem solving, design, detailed engineering & drafting along with a project.


 


WHO SHOULD ATTEND


This course is applicable to mechanical and HVAC engineers, process engineers, architects, building designers, contractors, energy auditors, facility managers who are involved in the design and installation of plumbing systems.


 


WHAT YOU WILL LEARN


Upon completion of this course the participant will be able to


This course provides basic design criteria pertinent to the design of Plumbing, Sanitary & Water Based Fire Fighting systems. This course identifies and outlines the types of drainage systems (sanitary and storm water), supply water distribution systems, hot water systems, sprinkler systems, standpipe systems and private hydrant systems, appropriate for your needs, together with the wise system design & energy conservation.


Gain an understanding of the basic principles and code requirements of typical plumbing systems and the ability to design and review plumbing systems. Know how to use calculations in the selection of piping materials and the methods of construction, sizing of piping and equipment, and plumbing fixture selection. Be well prepared to meet the design challenges of the varying types of commercial and institutional projects anticipated in the next decade.
