Rough & Final Inspections for Fire Sprinkler Systems 


This one day seminar provides attendees with vital information on how to conduct the field inspections for new fire sprinkler and standpipe systems. 


Fire sprinklers and standpipes are installed in stages and inspections are required before commencing to the next stage. The codes require periodic on-site inspections as the work progresses, to be installed according to the approved construction documents. This work is required to be inspected and approved before being covered or before the system is commissioned. This course points out the visual and physical inspection requirements of the latest codes and standards.


Bring latest edition of NFPA 13, NFPA 14 and IBC or IFC to presentation.
