McCulloch, who is NICET III-certified in residential fire sprinkler design and was recently appointed to the Residential Fire Sprinkler Design and Installation Exam Development Committee by the International Code Council® Board for International Professional Standards (BIPS), says this state-certified training will be highly valuable for water authorities who are typically more familiar with commercial fire sprinkler systems, since they have been a requirement in new construction for many years.
