The Alberta Fire Code states in rule 22.214.171.124. 2) b): Only qualified persons shall install, test or perform maintenance on a fire alarm system described in Section 6.3.
While issuance of a PIN is not a specific requirement of the Alberta Fire Code, the Electrical Contractors Association of Alberta is one of two Associations administering the PIN system, for the convenience of individuals who are requested to provide their qualification information by Fire Officials, Building owners, etc.
Please note that for those Electricians that currently have PIN’s as assigned by the former Alberta Labour, no further action is necessary.
Alberta Electricians certified before September 1, 1991, are required to take an additional course in Fire Detection and Alarm Systems before making application for a PIN number. Contact EITCA for more information.
Alberta Electricians certified after September 1, 1991 are invited to make application because they completed a component of Fire Detection and Alarm Systems in their fourth period of training.
