NICET WILL BEGIN TESTING FROM NFPA 72-2002 EFFECTIVE JANUARY 21, 2006.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

In November 2003 I made a presentation to the Oregon Fire Code
Committee reviewing the differences between NFPA 72-1999 and
NFPA 72-2002.  I recently modified the presentation in an effort to
make a supplement for my NICET Test Preparation Handbooks.  You can
download the supplement here:
