"For many new inspectors, interpreting and applying their legally adopted building or fire code can be a daunting task. The codes may seem overwhelming in their complexity, and the legal jargon in which they are written can be intimidating if one is not familiar with it. This Coffee Break Training, and several that will follow, provides some administrative tips on how to read and apply the model codes. For additional information and training on building and fire code enforcement, consider some of the fire prevention courses within the technical curriculum at the National Fire Academy (http://1.usa.gov/14XhC2i)."
