Hey everyone! I am looking for 3 NICET ll Fire alarm technicians in Huntsville, AL. We are offering Pier Diem, competitive pay and benefits. Please let me know if you or anyone may be interested. :) Please message me directly!
Hey guys, I have a code question. I am trying to find in NFPA72 or Florida Building Code where is says when lightning protection is needed. Can anyone help with a chapter?
Took my test on April 10, 2012 and you have still not completed my certification .
Your managers don’t have the brains to pour p**s out of a boot with directions I signed up for a practice test and the site directed me to a ExamStudio site which required me to set up a password . But the password takes me to a Nicet page that looks like it wants to reset my Nicet password . Your IT Dept is got to be some of the dumbest stooges I have ever seen. And you gonna certify me ?
Why does no one answer the phone lines at NICET or return or respond to emails? Bad customer service!
Just had a quick question, hopefully. I’m in a discussion with a coworker and I don’t have my books by me. Does anyone know off hand where in the code it states that fire alarm shall be run in red 3/4” conduit?
The new web page is great, but wondering if anyone else lost their cert I D number ? I was #1761 CT, but I can no longer be verified by the number on my certification :( Anyone else seen this issue ? Is there any status on, when it will be corrected ?
Best thing I ever did!!
Nest training ever!!!
Can anyone help me put a Siemens Firefinder XLS into walktest
Can anyone help me put a SiemensFirefighter XLS into walk test?
