NICET IV CBT
NICET IV CBT
I am getting ready for NICET IV CBT.
Does anyone have insight on this new IV CBT test? Is there a study guide available for the non system layout stuff. I am very comfortable with my NFPA 13, 14, 20, and 25, which are the only books allowed in the testing room. The level IV content outline shows there will be testing on contracts, project management, estimating, budget and expenses. I am comfortable and deal with these items often, but I have not had formal training. My entire fire protection career has been OTJ training. Are these questions mostly common sense stuff, or should I be reading a contracts and project management book to study up on industry terminology.
Also on the test are some NFPA 72 questions about fire alarm and NFPA 17 questions regarding wet and dry chemical. While I am somewhat familiar with these, I always reference the book, which isn't allowed in the testing center.
The test outline indicates to use a computer to hydraulically calculate complex systems involving loops and grids, for water, antifreeze and foam applications. Does the test really have a hydraulic program to input calculations? I'm thinking this is reading a print-out from a complex calculation and evaluating it for problems and efficiency. Any information regarding what to expect will be helpful. Thank you!
