This twelve hour course will cover changes to both the 2015 IMC and 2015 UMC. The course will begin with Chapters 1-3 (Administration; Definitions; & General Regulations) and 8-15 (Chimneys and Vents; Specific Appliances; Boilers Water Heaters & Pressure Vessels; Refrigeration; Hydronic Piping; & Referenced Standards) of the 2015 IMC by showing what language was removed or changed and what new language was added, with an explanation of why the code was changed or what the change was intended to accomplish as clarified by the Technical Committees.
This package will also look at Chapters 4-7 (Ventilation; Exhaust Systems; Duct Systems; & Combustion Air) by showing what language was removed or changed and what new language was added for the 2015 IMC with an explanation of why the code was changed or what the change was intended to accomplish as clarified by the Technical Committees.
The second half of the course focuses on the 2015 UMC. Students will examine Chapters 1-4 and 6-10, clearly showing what text has been removed from the 2012 edition and what text has been added. The reasons behind the change and what the change was intended to accomplish as clarified by the Technical Committees will be discussed along with how the change affects a working HVAC mechanic.
The final section of the course examines the two chapters with the largest amount of changes: Chapters 5 and 12, on Exhaust Systems and Hydronics.
By the end of this course, students will be able to better navigate the updated codes in the 2015 IMC and UMC, employ enhanced safety and energy efficiency strategies, respond to recent developments in refrigerants, hydronic, and geothermal heating systems, and understand the intent as well the specifics of the revisions made to the 2015 codes, in order to better explain, supervise, and coordinate with building officials.
