Track 1 - "2012 IFC Fire & Smoke Protection Features"; Instructor: Terrell Stripling

This seminar addresses the critical concepts of the 2012 International Building Code (ICC) regarding Chapter 7, Fire and Smoke Protection Features.  These concepts provide a basis for the analysis and identification of which components require fire-resistance rating; where the fire-resistance-rated construction is required in building construction; where smoke-resistant construction is mandated; and the use of fire door assemblies, fire window assemblies, penetration firestop systems, fire dampers and smoke damper.


Course Objectives:

  • Indicate how to properly protect openings and penetrations in fire-resistance-rated assemblies.
  • Explain the scope of the fire-resistance-rated and smoke resistant provisions in Chapter 7.
  • Describe the manner in which a fire-resistance rating is achieved.
  • Identify the individual building components that require a fire-resistance rating.

Track 2 - "IRC Inspector Essential Skills + Essential Health & Safety + Essential Structures"; Instructor Bob Schutz

Inspector Skills:  Addresses the necessary soft skills for success as an inspector, those non-technical traits and behaviors that enhance an inspector's ability to interact with others and to successfully carry out their job duties.  These include people skills such as effective communication, diplomacy and customer service, but also include skills for problem solving, professionalism, integrity and time management.  In addition to a solid understanding of the technical provisions of the codes, developing appropriate soft skills are essential in pursuing the goal of safe, healthy and durable buildings for the community.  Developed specifically for construction inspectors in all disciplines, the topics covered are equally important to all employees of public service agencies including permit technicians, plan reviewers, managers, building officials and fire code officials.  The information is also beneficial for developing policies and procedures to promote consistent and fair inspection practices while improving communications and public relations.


Health & Safety:  The health, safety, and welfare of the dwelling occupants is of primary concern to anyone involved in the design, construction, or inspection of residential buildings.  The International Residential Code (IRC) sets minimum requirements for the most commonly encountered building practices.  In this course, attendees will explore such topics as a safe means of exiting the building and protection from falls and from the hazards associated with breaking glass.  The code also sets minimum dimensions to support a healthy living environment.  Other requirements in the code address fire safety and air supply and support concerns for chimneys and fireplaces.


Structural:  When following conventional construction of residential buildings, protecting the safety and welfare of the building occupants and the public is a primary concern.  But as a professional, you don't want to feel backed into a corner by standards.  The International Residential Code (IRC) provides comprehensive, easy to use standards that afford the greatest design flexibility in recognizing other methods and materials of construction.  The course explains the difference between & Prescriptive and performance requirements.  Prescriptive structural design requirements to resist the forces of wind, earthquake and snow are described and illustrated in an easy-to-understand way.  Structural topics include conventional wood floor, wall and roof framing, and engineered wood products.

"2012 IFC Flammable and Combustible Storage Tanks"; Instructor:  Terrell Stripling

This seminar will discuss the requirements for underground and above-ground storage tanks for flammable & combustible liquids.  The 2012 International Fire Code (IFC) outlines these requirements.  The IFC has requirements for storage tanks in, Chapter 6, Chapter 23 and Chapter 57.  Storage tanks for flammable & combustible liquids are used in a variety of applications.  In the interest of personal safety, this seminar will take an in depth look at these applications and how to apply the codes to remain compliant.


Course Objectives

  • Identify construction, fire protection and inspection requirements for filed erected above ground storage tanks.
  • Identify shop-fabricated and field-erected above and underground storage tanks
  • Apply IFC and NFPA requirements for tanks based on their application
  • Explain tank construction, components and features.
  • Differentiate between normal and emergency venting.
