Each month, we take a look at an NTS course and go through five things you may or may not know about the course.
This month, we’re talking about the course designed to teach the code knowledge and practical technical skills you need to design, install and maintain fire alarm and electronic access control systems that comply with the 2009 edition of the NFPA 101 Life Safety Code.
5 Things About LSC
- Instruction focuses on the fire alarm and access control requirements for most common occupancy classes that students will encounter on a daily basis, offering insights on common errors and areas of confusion.
- Students and the employers can identify niche business opportunities based on the occupancy classes discussed in LSC, creating new revenue-generating services and opportunities.
- LSC provides a detailed overview of the similarities and differences between the IBC/IFC and the NFPA 101 Life Safety Code, making it easier to understand what requirements apply based on the adopted code in your local jurisdiction.
- Individuals holding a Certified Alarm/Security Technician - Level I certification for a minimum of 12 months and who successfully complete this course and the Fire Alarm Installation Methods course are eligible for certification as a Certified Fire Alarm Technician.
- The seven-hour, which concludes with a one-hour exam, is set to be available online later this year.
