These are two fully interactive seminars for those that want to gain valuable insight into the changes in the Standards that are going to impact design criteria, specifications, sequence of operation, and installation requirements for fire alarm systems when NBC 2015 is adopted in British Columbia later this year. We’ll cover conventional and addressable systems, both the required and recommended design documentation, Verification of Fire Alarm Systems (conventional and addressable systems), audibility and intelligibility testing, as well as testing of large area networks, interconnection of sprinkler systems, extinguishment systems, Emergency Voice Communication (EVC) systems, Command and Control Facility (CACF), smoke and elevator control. We’ll also introduce you to Canada’s newest Installation Standard, CAN/ULC-S573-17.

The course will explore essential elements of the Canadian Electrical Code CSA C22.1-12 Part 1 Sections 10 and 32, CSA B44, the Vancouver Building Bylaw 2014 (NBC 2010), CAN/ULC-S537-13, Bulletin 2000-021-BU/EL, CAN/ULC-S524-14 (including Amendment 1), CAN/ULC-S561-13, and CAN/ULC-S1001-11.

An operational POTTER PFC-8500 fully addressable fire alarm control will be featured to demonstrate Verification and Commissioning requirements!

A workbook will be provided with additional hand-out materials.
