The programs are centered around the compliance with nationally accepted codes relative to mechanical systems such as fire alarm and detection systems, automatic sprinkler systems, fixed fire extinguishing systems, portable fire extinguishers, furnaces, boilers, heaters, oil burning appliances, and gas burning appliances.
