This 4-hour course will satisfy CE requirements for plumbers in Montana, primarily focusing on the changes to Chapters 9 through 17.

Chapters 9, 10, 11, 13, and 14 contain minor changes which will be reviewed briefly. Then, we’ll spend some time discussing Chapter 16, which covers alternative source for non potable water applications. This Chapter was entirely replaced with Chapter 5 from the Green Plumbing and Mechanical Code Supplement. We’ll also talk about why this big change was made.

Chapter 17, which addresses non potable rainwater catchment systems, has also been revised due to the need for alternative water sources and reduced water usage. After that, we’ll review updates to the appendices, before moving on to the IFGC.

Montana adopted the International Fuel Gas Code to replace the IFGC as the state code for fuel gas piping and appliances in Chapter 12 of the UPC. We’ll talk about which sections of the Code apply, and what these means in practice.

After that, we’ll briefly review Chapters 1 through 7 of the IFGC, and the amendments to general requirements, gas piping installations, chimneys, and vents.
