Seismic Design for Fire Sprinkler Systems

NFPA 13 - 2007 Edition

120 Minutes

CEUs = 0.2 / CPDs = 2.0 (CEUs/CPDs are OPTIONAL)


The topic of seismic design has become well known to many over the past five years. And like many, your learning experience has most likely come with a cost. The new editions of NFPA and IBC have arrived and offer a much more understandable process for those involved with fire protection systems to apply. Designed to familiarize the participant with Section 9-3 of NFPA 13 (2007 Edition), this seminar has been organized with condensed step-by-step information that leads from the “when” through to the “how”. Whether you have wrestled with this before or you have not yet experienced this process, this seminar will be valuable to both engineers of record, sprinkler system designers and authorities of jurisdiction. It is recommended that you have a copy of the 2007 Edition of NFPA 13 available while participating in this seminar.
