Learn about requirements for smoke detection systems in one and two family homes. These requirements come from NFPA 72, Fire Alarm and Signaling Code, The National Electrical Code, the International Residential Code, NJ Rehab Sub-Code and more. You'll learn to differentiate between Smoke Alarms and Smoke Detectors and why that is so important to code compliance. This course is packed full of information to help you get it right the first time when you are out in the field or selling to your customer.
In this module, we review the the math, electrical theory, formulas and practical application commonly used in the trade. We review series and parallel circuits, combining multiple resistors, voltage drop and battery calculations and more.
This course introduces attendees to the National Electrical Code (NEC) 2017 edition, significant changes from the prior version and applicability to the installation of alarms and electronic security systems.
The following classes have been designed as a primer for a more comprehensive program that typically runs 40 hours. These classes have been formatted to 2 hour, 3 hour and 4 hour sessions to fit a variety of program opportunities. Each presentation is bound by an inextricable emphasis throughout on ethics, moral behavior, honesty and integrity. It is anticipated that any of the three sessions will serve as the basis for the longer program. Licensees taking any one of these modules will have been exposed to these fundamental concepts.
