Webinar: Fire Sprinklers in the IBC and IFC

Webinar: Fire Sprinklers in the IBC and IFC
This webinar will be an overview of the parts of the building codes that affect sprinkler installations.

The IBC and IFC are the building codes which provide when and where sprinklers are required. NFPA 13 is the standard on how to design and install sprinklers. This presentation will provide an overview of places in the building codes that affect sprinkler installations. Not knowing the basics of what the building codes require can have a detrimental effect on your daily operations. The potential conflicts between the codes and NFPA standards will also be identified. The codes can override the requirements of the NFPA 13 standard, which could severely impact the system design or project bid.


  • The webinar connection and content is FREE to all AFSA members.
  • This webinar offers 0.15 CEUs and 1.5 CPDs.  
  • To receive continuing education credit for this webinar you must register for credits for a nominal fee of $25 per certificate.
