Course Learning Outcomes: Explain the requirements of the National Electrical Code® (NEC)®, NFPA 70®, as they apply to fire alarm systems.
Enabling Points:Explain the purpose of the NEC, relative to fire alarm systems List the applicable NEC articles, relative to fire alarm systems Explain: power-limited circuits non-power-limited circuits Explain what is covered by Article 760 of the NEC Define "fire alarm circuit" as defined in the NEC List the power limitation (volt-amps) for power-limited fire alarm circuits Explain NEC Chapter 3 wiring methods Differentiate between a plenum and other space for environmental air, as listed in the NEC List proper wiring types allowed to be installed in: wiring risers, floor to floor a single floor a space for other environmental air a plenum Explain the requirements of NEC article 500 as it relates to fire alarm systems
This module satisfies part of the requirements of work element 34005 (Fire Alarm System Wiring) as listed in the National Institute for Certification in Engineering Technologies (NICET) Program Detail Manual, Level II General Work Elements for certification of fire alarm technicians. (Eighth Edition, September, 2005)
Work Element 34005 (Fire Alarm System Wiring) requires work that is outside the scope of this program. An electrical riser diagram and a plan view diagram of a fire alarm system is required to complete this work element. It is anticipated that this will be fulfilled in the field.
