In this 6-hour course, AYPO will review the most significant changes to the Uniform Mechanical Code. We'll begin with a history of the UMC, as well as a discussion of the 2012 ANSI Uniform Mechanical Plumbing Code. After that, we'll jump into the changes that are most important for you to know.
We'll begin by discussing the changes to Chapter 1, which determines the administration and enforcement of the code. Chapter 2 contains important definitions for terms used in the code, and we'll review the most significant changes there, as well as newly-added definitions.
Chapter 3 focuses on general requirements which include safety, labelling, and access requirements. Changes are also made to regulations that address flood protection standards and condensate removal. In Chapters 4 through 8, we'll cover the topics of ventilation and exhaust systems, as well as duct systems, those utilizing combustion, and chimneys and vents.
Chapters 9 through 11 will cover situations where gas piping is used, as well as refrigeration devices and some other specific appliances. This includes a discussion of Appendices B and C.
The final section of the course will review Chapters 12 through 17, and Appendix E. These cover the areas of hydronics, venting, appropriate test pressures, cathodic protection requirements, and sustainable and green practices.
