In this 8-hour course, we’ll cover the most significant changes to the UPC that Idaho plumbers need to be familiar with in Chapter 1 through 5. This includes updates to the administration and definitions of the code, as well as more specific changes.

The Chapter 1 review of the course will cover the general scope of the UPC, along with organization and enforcement, and how violations and penalties are handled. We’ll also talk about inspections, maintenance, repairs and alterations, and how to handle it when two relevant codes conflict.

Next, we’ll discuss minimum standards for the materials used in plumbing construction and repair, as well as some alternate materials and methods that may be used. We’ll cover working in flood hazard areas, handling wastes, and preventative measures to ensure the functionality of a plumbed system.

Chapter 4 addresses plumbing fixtures and fittings, including the quality of various materials, and how to use different fixtures properly. Chapter 5 will address working with water heaters. This includes inspection requirements, safety devices, and various types of water heaters, as well as instruction for installing water heaters in special locations.

    It was a welcomed challenge and a great way to get updated on the new changes with the code

  • August 19th, 2018 -

    A serious code coarse that covers the 2017 ISPC really well.

  • July 26th, 2018 -

  • July 17th, 2018 -

    what does this mean?

  • June 20th, 2018 -

    not really

  • August 25th, 2019 -

    160 questions for such a quick course seemed a bit excessive.

  • September 3rd, 2018 -

    Just too much looking up of code numbers. A lot of the questions did not seem pertinent for a contractor license to be activated. A lot of the questions though did make me familiarized with the newer fields of medical and rain water technology.

  • December 31st, 2018 -

    The course I did 3 years ago was more interactive and seemed easier

  • August 18th, 2018 -

    Highlighted changes was useful to understanding changes. No other comments.

  • February 7th, 2018 -

    In general it was a good course however needs some work

  • March 9th, 2019 -

    Difficult course to navigate and focuses more on specific wording than the spirit of the rule.

  • March 20th, 2019 -

    Do a different course. this is absolutley unnecessary and extended. Don't pay for this.

  • January 24th, 2019 -

    make it shorter and stop playing word games on the quiz

  • November 2nd, 2018 -

    Would not recommend this course at all until it is fixed. Do to the glitches it should have counted as a Contractors coarse time wise.

  • March 30th, 2018 -

    You take test all the way thru then 160 question N test at end. Stupid to renew a license that you have to take a exam
