FL International Fuel and Gas Code 3HR CE #0613095-COPY
International Fuel and Gas Code
The International Fuel Gas Code® (IFGC®) establishes minimum requirements for plumbing systems using prescriptive and performance-related provisions. It is founded on broad-based principles that make possible the use of new materials and new plumbing designs. This course will review the basic provisions for appliance installation, combustion air, venting, fuel gas piping, ducting, ventilation and exhaust. Participants will gain an understanding how these requirements apply to design, plan review and inspection.
At the end of this course participants will be able to:
- Outline the authority and duties of the code official.
- Define the meaning and intent of terms as they are referenced in the code.
- Apply the requirements set forth by the code related to design, construction, installation, maintenance, repair and approval of fuel gas systems.
