NICET ELEMENT REVIEW HANDBOOK
-----------------------------

The AFAA Intermediate Fire Alarm seminar was designed to address two
different needs of attendees:

1) To review the most recent version of NFPA 72®, National Fire Alarm
Code® to help keep AHJ’s (Authority Having Jurisdiction), designers,
and technicians informed of the changes that occur from code cycle to
code cycle. 
2) To help NICET level I & II applicants prepare for test elements. To
familiarize them with the structure of NFPA standards. 

To give you an idea of how this seminar helps prepare NICET test-
takers, consider NFPA 70, National Electrical Code®.  On the second
day of the Intermediate Fire Alarm class, we spend one to two hours
reviewing the fire alarm relevant bits of the NEC®, also known as the
world’s worst bedtime story.  Our review is centered on article 760,
which refers to other parts within NFPA 70.  To the uninitiated it can
be a circuitous, convoluted, and confusing review.  It’s difficult to
retain all of this information for weeks or months ahead of a
scheduled test.
May I suggest a NICET Element Review Study Guide? 

I’ve included an element from the Study Guide so that you can see how
useful it will be on your next exam:
http://www.etnews.org/docs/34005_Fire_Alarm_System_Wiring.pdf. 
For example, if you’ve signed up for element 34005 Fire Alarm System
Wiring, you simply turn your Study Guide to that element number where
you will have much of the relevant bits of NFPA 70 available at your
fingertips.  It doesn’t get any easier than that! 

You can order the Fire Alarm and Sprinkler System Layout study guides
from AFAA via http://www.afaa.org or by calling 407-833-9133.
