In the lower-division baccalaureate/associate degree category, two semester hours in fire science or fire engineering.

This six-day course introduces the student to the fundamental methodology for application of fire and life safety codes and standards. Although it contains many of the basic principles of code enforcement, more experienced code inspectors and officials might find it useful as a review of essential methodologies and as a useful update to current code enforcement applications.

It is not the intent of this course to present specific code requirements, however this course focuses more on the methodology of the use of these requirements.
