Our Faculty

You will learn about means of egress and Chapter 10 from William E. Koffel, P.E., FSFPE, and President of Koffel Associates, Inc. Having designed and led means of egress workshops and presentations for the ICC and NFPA, William E. Koffel is a leader when it comes to means of egress solutions, fire protection engineering, building consulting and fire code requirements.

During this training, you’ll learn the requirements and best practices for creating safe buildings with accessible exit points and emergency systems designed to protect users of the building in situations where rapid exits are required. IBC chapter 10 contains a great deal of detail about means of egress and specific requirements for different building systems.

These requirements are based on real fire and hazard situations that have informed these building codes. As a living document, IBC chapter 10 is updated as building designs and hazards change and our understandings of safe exit systems evolves. This training offered through Lorman Education Services will help you understand how to apply current building codes contained in IBC chapter 10 to a variety of structures.
