  • Description

    NFPA®'s 2018 Life Safety Code® Essentials Classroom Training helps you apply the 2018 NFPA 101® correctly to protect building occupants.

    The 2018 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.

    NFPA's training presents a unique opportunity to practice LSC application in a classroom activity based on a realistic scenario. Under the guidance of Code experts, participants will work through a fully developed case study selected to help solidify knowledge. It's excellent training for facility or risk managers, authorities having jurisdiction, safety directors, and anyone responsible for occupant safety and compliance. A Certificate of Completion is available after the course upon completion of an online exam.
