Our Part 3 Fire Protection course is a detailed technical course. This building code course deals with incombustible construction, closures, continuity of fire separations and firewalls, spatial separation and exposure protection while using referenced standards that are outside the Ontario Building Code.
Course Delivery Method:
This is normally an in-class course but will be offered temporarily online via Blackboard Learn/Collaborate while college buildings are closed.
You must bring a copy of the 2012 Building Code Compendium to the first class. The compendium is available for purchase at the George Brown College bookstore (either on campus or online), at our Building Code and Trade Manuals website and at the Publications Ontario website.
The Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing (MMAH) exam is not included. MMAH exam and Building Code Identification Number (BCIN) information can be found on the MMAH website. (Humber College hosts the Building Code exams on behalf of the MMAH. Visit the Humber College Ontario Building Code Examinations website to schedule and pay for the applicable exam.) This course should not be confused with our BLDG 9262 Fire Protection 2012 (Distance Learning) course, which is intended mainly for inspectors whose duties relate to plans, review or inspection regarding fire suppression, fire detection firefighting and fire safety.
Refer to the basic technology requirements for Blackboard online courses.
You must have a general understanding of the building construction process and basic blueprint reading skills.
You will have the most success in this course if you have already completed BLDG 9241 Part 3 Large Buildings Classification and Construction or BLDG 9267 Part 3 Large Buildings Classification and Construction (Distance Learning) or BLDG 9240 Part 3 Large Buildings Health and Safety Requirements before you start this course.
