This 4-hour UPC review is specifically designed for New Mexico plumbers to meet part of the CE requirements needed for renewal.

In the course, we’ll review the history of the UPC and the IPC, before we dive into the UPC Chapters and the updates to them.

We’ll review the newest regulations for the administration of the code, including maintenance, testing, and repair, along with standards for working in flood areas or with waste materials. We’ll review the new standards for fixtures and fittings, including for backflow protection and special use equipment.

Next, we’ll talk about the the appropriate size of pipe, temperatures, and safety devices for installing water heaters in specialized locations, before covering regulations for sanitary drainage, and indirect waste from food and beverage establishments.
