Online Firestop Training Program
From International Firestop CouncilThe construction industry’s most comprehensive online firestop inspection training and education program has been developed by the International Firestop Council for code officials, inspectors and all building trades professionals associated with commercial building firestopping from design through installation.
The IFC Recommended Training and Education for Third-Party Firestop Inspectors program is a free 40- to 60-hour, firestopping self-study program that educates via recommended outsourced videos, PowerPoint® presentations and documents all available via 22 Internet website links from Underwriters Laboratories, International Code Council, Federal Emergency Management Agency, American Society of Testing and Materials, the IFC and other industry-leading sites.
The program’s syllabus is available as an interactive Web page or downloadable 9-page document at www.firestop.org/inspection. While there is no charge for the program’s self-study portion, registrants can opt for a 2-hour, $500 IFC-sponsored online, post- training certification test, which requires a minimum passing grade of 80 percent. Passing students will receive a certificate from the IFC and a free listing at the www.firestop.org website. A free enhanced website listing is also available for students opting for 2-hour, hands-on product training from four or more participating firestop manufacturers.
