Intl. Code Council, SFPE Team Up


The International Code Council (ICC) and the Society of Fire Protection Engineers (SFPE) are collaborating on initiatives to expand services offered to the memberships of both organizations. The partnership will facilitate fire protection design and education—SFPE will offer ICC members a discounted rate on SFPE’s six new online training seminars.

"Fire protection is a crucial part of building safety and code compliance," ICC CEO Rick Weiland said. "Performance-based fire protection designs are being used more and more. The code council's relationship with SFPE allows us to further the science of fire protection engineering and provide code officials with the technical assistance needed to review and evaluate these designs.”

SFPE’s web-based courses are: Code Official’s Guide to Performance-Based Design, Fire Alarms Course for Fire Service/Fire Prevention Officer Training, Human Behavior in Fire, Principles of Structural Fire Protection, Sprinkler Course Fire Service/Fire Prevention Officer and Principles of Fire Protection Engineering.

Other areas of cooperation include the joint development and distribution of new publications and training, exchange of technical articles and information, and the promotion of each organization’s products and services.
