This 12 hour package for the Utah plumber satisfies all of the continuing education requirements for your license renewal! The course is split into three sections:
- Changes to the 2015 IPC
- Utah Amendments to the 2015 IPC
- Common Problems for Plumbers
The package begins with a concise review of the newest updates to the 2015 International Plumbing Code, covering Chapters 1 - 9. We'll focus primarily on the changes to the regulations, and how they'll affect your day-to-day. Throughout this section, we'll talk about standards on valve sizes, temperature ratings for drainage piping, cleanouts for drainage and waste systems, and the new exceptions for solvent cementing.
From there, we move into the state-specific amendments to the IPC. We'll focus on the most important changes, like those made to fixture traps, interceptors, and separators, as well as the exceptions to those rules. In addition to all of this, we'll look at green plumbing practices, and briefly cover the practice of reclaiming water through rainwater catchment systems and nonpotable water reuse systems.
To finish off the package, we'll cover some of the common problems that every plumber faces in their work. You'll get detailed problem-solving tips on avoiding typical problem areas of pipe noise, mismatched pipes, air gaps, and floor drains, as well as instruction on how to deal with the following areas:
- Corrosion Control
- Customer-Created Problems
This course was designed to be informative without being hard to understand. Code sections are explained in everyday terms, so that you can move through the course with ease. There are in-text questions included so you can test your knowledge as you go. This package satisfies all 12 required hours, so that once you finish the course, you can rest easy knowing that your license is fully renewed.
