AYPO’s 8-hour course will focus on the important changes to the IMC in 2012 from 2009. This includes an overview of the history and organization of the IMC. This includes new standards in Chapter 1 which addresses administration, maintenance, and inspections, as well as the updates to general regulations in Chapter 3. Ventilations systems are addressed in Chapter 4.

Chapter 5, contains some of the most extensive code changes. Here, various exhaust systems are addressed, as well as techniques for pressure equalization. This chapter also reviews topics including grease duct enclosures, cleanouts, and exhaust systems and hoods such as those in commercial kitchens. We’ll also discuss air balance for commercial kitchen ventilation, hazardous exhaust duct penetrations, and energy recovery systems.

Chapter 6 will cover concerns in duct systems, such as return air openings, plenums, joints, dampers, and in Chapter 7, the standards and ratings for certain materials used in HVAC installation.

In Chapter 8, we’ll discuss changes to regulations for temperature-sensitive areas such as chimneys and vents, fireplace doors, and evaporative coolers. Chapter 9 maintains a focus on special appliances which will likely require a manufacturer’s instructions, while Chapter 11 looks at refrigeration systems.
