Who should attend?
- Code Officials
- Fire Marshals & Inspectors
- CNG Professionals
This course, designed and taught by FS Circle Solutions, explains relevant codes and how they apply to Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) fueling stations. Participants will leave understanding the differences between IFC, NFPA 52 and NFPA 30A. These differences are a common source of friction between CNG developers and code officials because the industry designs meet NFPA 52, but code officials often inspect using the IFC. This class will cut through the confusing and often conflicting parts of the codes, and attendees will be able to enforce codes and permitting in a consistent manner that also improves public safety.
