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.
Chapter 1 Scope and Administration: This chapter describes how the code is to be applied and enforced. It outlines the authority and duties of the code official and the rights of the design professional, contractor and property owner.
Chapter 2 Definitions: The code often uses terms that are unique in meaning. This chapter establishes the meaning and intent of terms as they are referenced in the code.

The ability to interpret plumbing blueprints and successfully install the required plumbing systems is an essential skill. Prints provide the details you need regarding types and sizes of sinks to the location of gas lines, drains and vents. This video course outlines the general layout of both residential and commercial plans, identifying and detailing schedules, legends, symbols and engineering instructions.
At the end of this course participants will be able to:
- Identify the various symbols included in any residential or commercial blueprint.
- Gain a broad understanding of the methodology behind successful plan reading.
- Detail and implement the use of blueprints when bidding and completing a plumbing project.
Lesson 1 Details of Engineered Prints – 17 minutes: This lesson is an introduction to plan reading basics, and how to interpret the general information found on the main page of the print.
