The State of Virginia recently adopted the 2015 International Mechanical Code (IMC) in place of the 2012 edition. Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning Contractors (tradesmen) with valid licenses operating in Virginia must complete 3 hours of continuing education credit on the state’s adoption of the IMC changes in order to renew.
Our course begins with a look at the history and basic organization of the IMC. Then, chapter by chapter, we analyze the changes between the previous 2012 version and the newer 2015 version. Learn about updated standards for exhaust systems, condensation, and refrigerants. Key changes apply to drain line maintenance, condensate pumps, ambulatory care facilities, commercial kitchen hoods, and more.
After each section is a question meant to test the student’s comprehension at an incremental pace. Then, a 10-question final exam will wrap up the course. Analysis, diagrams, and clear comparisons of the changes between the 2012 and 2015 editions are utilized to aid tradesmen in absorbing the information.
