It describes the various tables used in the standard, their specific purposes, and when to use which tables. It involves the attendees in a significant number of exercises to describe problems encountered, identify the appropriate section(s) of the standard and how to deal with issues not covered by the standard that may still be encountered.

A copy of NFPA 25 2017 is included in the registration fee.
