National Fire Academy Seeks Students to Pilot-Test Course

The National Fire Academy is currently recruiting students to help pilot-test the online instructor mediated course, Code Administration Fundamentals C0248). The course will be delivered through an online discussion board and self-study.

Course Description: This course examines the underlying principles involved in the building and fire code administrative provisions so students can analyze the legal authorities, responsibilities and permissions needed to enforce the codes in their jurisdictions.

At the end of this course, students will be able to:

Identify the duties and powers of the code official/authority having jurisdiction

Recognize owner/occupant responsibilities to comply with the codes.

Identify the code officials’ legal authorities and liabilities related to inspections.

Analyze the use of permits and documentation in code administration.

Outline steps to accomplish code enforcement and condemnation proceedings.

Course Delivery: An on-line instructor mediated course balances self-study components with interactions and discussions among the students and the instructor. This course is done in an asynchronous fashion. Students and the instructor will likely be online at different times and will post and respond to discussions on their own schedule. After reviewing the self-study materials, the students will have the opportunity to participate in discussions with other students on various assigned topics. The instructor will open each module, provide feedback on assignments, summarize discussions, and provide mentoring to meet the unique needs of individual students
