Description 

NFPA®'s 2015 Life Safety Code® Essentials Classroom Training helps you apply the 2015 NFPA 101® correctly to protect building occupants. Review concepts and earn your Certificate of Educational Achievement* online!

The 2015 Life Safety Code reflects the latest technologies, design approaches, and challenges, and this high-impact seminar provides the tools you need to confidently apply or enforce requirements. Topics span means of egress, determining occupant load and egress capacity, requirements for protection of vertical openings and hazardous areas, high rise buildings, and determining requirements for building services and operating features. A special section covers building rehabilitation.

It's excellent training for facility or risk managers, authorities having jurisdiction, safety directors, and anyone responsible for occupant safety and compliance.
