Firestop Classes

Hi everyone!

We have the schedule for the next semester of classes at Rutgers.

The first class – Understanding the Requirements of Firestop Special Inspection will be in Vineland on Thursday, March 29th and at Budd Lake Holiday Inn on Tuesday May 8th.  This class doesn’t go over what you need to do the actual firestop special inspection.  We discuss how the adoption of the 2015 building code changes the responsibility of the jurisdictional inspector who is now responsible for identifying who is qualified to conduct this scope of work.

The second class is on the Installation and Inspection of Grease Duct Wrap. The first date this class will be available will be in Mahwah on Friday April 6th and the second class will be in Monroe on Thursday April 26th.  In this class we talk about the test standard for grease duct wrap. We do some quick training on how to install the material, then we let half of the class participants install an actual mock up duct, while the other half of the class conducts the inspection. We discuss the various things to review during an inspection, and common errors.  The class wraps up with a discussion about some of the more complicated grease duct wrap installations.
