So, the City of Pittsburgh has just started a new program, where any company installing a sprinkler system will be required to have a Fire Sprinkler Contractors License. Up until now, we just had to have a General Contractors License.So, to receive the Fire Protection Contractor License, you must pass the ICC's Class DF Fire Suppression Installation Contractor Test. I was hoping my Level III NICET certification would suffice, but when they wrote the new rule, in lieu of the ICC test, you had to be NICET Level III in BOTH waterbased systems layout AND special hazard systems layout. We do not do any special hazards, so obviously I am not certified for them, let alone Level III. Does anybody here know anything about the ICC tests? Curious what I am getting into. Also, in investigating the ICC tests, I see they have tests for plan reviewers and installation inspectors. Since I have to get set up in the database to take this installing contractors test, I may eventually take the other ones, just to say I did . Seriously though, anybody have any information on the ICC Installation Contractor Test?
