Inspector's Boot Camp (IBC), sponsored by BuildingReports, has released its 2011 training schedule featuring several new inspection classes. IBC is one of the few resources providing professional training and certification in testing and inspections for the fire and life safety industry and offers training by leading industry experts on every aspect of conducting professional safety inspections in today's commercial buildings.
The new inspection training includes the following hands-on courses:
- Fire Alarm & Life Safety: May 9th – 13th, 2011
- Extinguishers & Safety Equipment including Kitchen Hoods & Fire Doors: May 16th – 20th, 2011
- Basic Fire Sprinkler: June 27th - July 1st, 2011
- Fire Alarm & Life Safety: Nov 14th – 18th, 2011
"There's an evident need for more comprehensive training for fire and life safety inspectors," says Al Lanier, managing director for IBC. "We attribute the new course offerings to the increased demand by service companies and facility managers for advanced inspection and software training."
IBC students are trained in one of the finest fire service labs in the country at Aiken Technical College’s FAST Lab in Aiken, SC. The FAST Lab includes a variety of fire alarm and working sprinkler systems, fire pumps, and extinguishing and suppression systems from top manufacturers. Students receive 3.6 CEUs for industry certifications, preparation for passing the IMSA Interior Fire Alarm Level I certification and the NAFED/ICC certification examination, as well as pre & post inspection assessments and professional customer interaction.
IBC has been helping build world-class fire and life safety inspection teams since 2005. Dedicated to enhancing the value of inspectors through education, IBC graduates represent some of the leading service providers in the country.
