Our 8 hour course will cover every significant change selected by the IAPMO companion publication to the 2015 UMC (2015 Guide to Important Changes), as well as a few critical changes overlooked by this publication from the first four Chapters and from Chapters 6 through 10.
We’ll begin with an overview of the code-change process and a look at the administrative portion of the Code.
Then we’ll move into the Code itself and look at the significant changes in Chapters 1 through 4.
Following that we’ll discuss Chapter 5, (Exhaust Systems) more depth, as it saw a large amount of impactive changes.
From there. We’ll move through Chapters 6 through 10 and then provide a more in depth examination of the changes to Chapter 11 (Refrigeration).
Finally, we’ll take a critical look at Chapter 12 (Hydronics). This relatively new field is seeing massive growth and there were a large number of changes in the Code as a result.
In order to make each change presented in this class as clear as possible, the code language will be presented, 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. By the end of this course students will be able to approach the complex considerations regarding exhaust systems with the latest codes and methods, employ enhanced safety and efficiency strategies for exhaust systems, effectively navigate the heavily revised codes on hydronics, provide the highest level of service to customers interested in hydronic heating, and understand the intent as well as the specifics of the revisions made to these two key Chapters in the 2015 UMC, in order to better explain, supervise, and coordinate with building officials.
