NICET and New 72

NICET and New 72

NICET and New 72

I just got a look at the new NFPA 72.
Lots of changes. How quickly will this change the NICET examinations?

1) Gas system integration
2) Classification of circuits will be gone.
3) Mass notification
4) etc.

RE: NICET and New 72

I hope the NICET examinations will reflect these changes or it will make the test a lot harder . I have to get in contact with NICET to take my test for II F.A.

RE: NICET and New 72

I'm not so sure, the older 72's didn't vary that much these changes are pretty big in the new code. For me at least there are a lot of ambiguities.

For example, they say that the code includes signalling in general, so what does this mean in terms of hardware? Can I have multiple analytics in one panel, like say a system that can detect both smoke and say some other gas (ie refrigerant monoxide, etc.)

Another area I'm not so sure about is the circuit wire classifications. How do I specify redundancy, and how the circuit gets wired. The old class and style specifications gave a good standard.

I definitely want to take some seminar before I take the exam, or at least get the new code with the commentary so I can read through it more intensely.

PS good luck on the exam
