NTC Updates Red & Orange Books for 2011
National Training Center (NTC) announced that the NTC Red Book: Fire Alarm Certification Guide and the NTC Orange Book: Chuck Notes have been updated for 2011.
NTC’s Red Book contains critical information for all NICET Level 1, 2, 3, and 4 Task Areas, the company described. It is written to streamline this study process. Chuck Notes is a fire alarm systems reference for code requirements. This book is based on code requirements for fire alarm systems and includes life safety requirements and electrical requirements.
Vice president of NTC and co-author, Bryan McLane, said, “We take pride in the fact that NTC books are the leading reference materials in the industry. We are continually updating our reference books as the industry standards change, offering the most current information available in the low-voltage arena. As most know, NICET recently implemented a computer-based testing system that is very different from the previous work-element-based testing. It was imperative that we re-write the NTC Red Book: Fire Alarm Certification Guide and the NTC Orange Book: Chuck Notes, as these books are two of the most important books to have on hand when preparing for the NICET exam.
“We are very pleased with the results and have received excellent feedback from our customers. Many of our long-term customers have a full library of the NTC books and have placed orders for the new Red and Orange books, stating that, ‘It is important to them to have the most up-to-date reference materials for their staff on hand.’ It is apparent that while the NTC Red and Orange books are essential study tools for the NICET exam, these books are often referred to as “the industry bibles” and are used on the job by industry professionals.”
