  • Explain the basic requirements of NFPA 13, Standard for the Installation of Sprinkler Systems, 2010 edition, for storage occupancies.
The instructor will be a staff member of the International Code Council. .6 hours of ICC continuing education units will be awarded for this course. A course booklet will be provided to each student with the subject matter, however, you may also wish to bring the 2012 IFC for reference.
