Uniform Mechanical Code 2012 Study Guide (IAPMO)
The 2012 edition of the Uniform Mechanical Code (UMC©) represents the most current approaches in the mechanical field. It is the fourth edition developed under the ANSI Consensus process is designated as an American National Standards by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). Contributions to the content of this code were made by every segment of the built industry, including such diverse interests as consumers, enforcing authorities, installers/maintainers, labor, manufacturers, research/standards/ testing laboratories, special experts and users. The UMC provides complete requirements for the installation and maintenance of heating, ventilating, cooling and refrigeration systems, while at the same time allowing latitude for innovations and new technologies. This study guide was developed as a tool for self-study or classroom training to assist the user to better understand the requirements of the Uniform Mechanical Code. Although it is quite useful for examination preparation, such as, inspector, certification, contractor, and journeyman, it is not intended to replace the intense study required to be successful for these exams.
