The Fire Code requires that whenever there is hot work (gas torch, etc.) operation taking place at a major construction site, a fire watch should be done by a person holding an F-60 Certificate of fitness (C of F). The F-60 C of F is also required when hot work operations will be conducted in an occupied building or when repairs are being done in an office building.
This seminar prepares students for the computer-based F-60 Fireguard for Torch Operations C of F exam. Candidates will receive instruction on rules, regulations and best practices from the FDNY, National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and the Rules of the City of New York. Students will also be taught the proper protocol and procedures to stand fireguard duty during Torch Operations.
