NSCA to Offer MNEC Training at InfoComm

Due to the recent changes in the National Fire and Alarm Signaling Code (NFPA 72) that may present new opportunities for commercial electronics systems integrators, NSCA plans to host two training courses and one panel discussion at InfoComm 2010 for show attendees interested in entering and profiting from this emerging market.

Due to the recent changes in the National Fire and Alarm Signaling Code (NFPA 72) that may present new opportunities for commercial electronics systems integrators, NSCA plans to host two training courses and one panel discussion at InfoComm 2010 for show attendees interested in entering and profiting from this emerging market.

Led by experts on NFPA 72 and UL 2572, the sessions are scheduled to include information about code changes and how they affect the electronic systems industry.

"Systems contractors have an opportunity to take the lead on intelligibility as the security and audio worlds converge," said Chuck Wilson, NSCA executive director, in a statement. "The recent revisions to NFPA 72 will open up a profitable new market and NSCA wants to help integrators get involved."

NFPA 72 Real-World Application for 2010 and Beyond: Measurement and Verification System Speech Intelligibility will take place Wednesday, June 9. NSCA officials say the course will help students understand how systems integrators will have to design and install systems according to the new provisions through STIP requirements for intelligibility, measurement procedures, and documentation requirements, among others.

NFPA 72 Changes for 2010: Profiting from Change will be held Thursday, June 10, and cover how the code changes affect a business, ranging from personnel qualifications and technical fundamental knowledge, to inspection and testing of mass notification systems.

Finally the Mass Notification & Emergency Communications Summit is scheduled for Thursday, June 10. Industry trade associations, code-making officials, leading manufacturers, consultants, and industry experts will hold a roundtable discussion to explore how the 2010 code changes and new standards for fire and life safety systems will affect the industry.

All sessions will be held in the Las Vegas Convention Center. To register or find out more information, visit www.nscaatinfocomm.org. For more information on Mass Notification & Emergency Communications, visit NSCA's new website, www.mnec.org.
