Virtual Course - Held via Zoom Webinars
Course Description: This one-day (approx. 7-hour) virtual class covers core concepts found in the 2021 California Fire and Building Code related to aboveground generators, including stationary and portable generators. Some overlapping APSA concepts will be addressed, but the course is intended primarily to address fire and building code requirements for generators. The course will cover design and construction of tanks and piping systems, emergency and standby generators, venting, overfill prevention, spill control, containment, protection systems, testing and maintenance, and more.
Fire Prevention Inspectors and Plan Reviewers alike can expect to increase their knowledgebase and enhance their skills related to reviewing plans and performing field inspections of aboveground generators.
