The S.C. Chapter of the International Association of Arson Investigators (SCIAAI) is proud to announce the 2018 2nd Quarterly Training Event. This course will look into corrugated stainless steel tubing (CSST) products, codes, and lightning interaction associated with them. Furthermore, the courses will analyze the history of CSST products including the newer “arc-resistant” CSST products, along with diving into the relevant code bodies to see how grounding and bonding requirements have changed over the several years. The student will also observe direct and indirect lightning strikes to structures and the effects on fuel gas piping systems. At the end of this training, students should be able to properly investigate a fire scene involving CSST or other gas piping systems.

The presenter of this course will be Scott Duquette, PE with Unified Investigations and Sciences.  Mr. Duquette holds a Bachelors and Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering and a Master of Business Administration. He is a licensed professional engineer in multiple states, and he spent most of his career in design and manufacturing. Mr. Duquette previously spent seven years in the CSST industry and studied the effects of lightning strikes to CSST to develop a new product.

This course has been approved through the South Carolina Criminal Justice Academy, South Carolina Fire Academy, and the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division. The course material will contain information from NFPA 1033 and NFPA 921.
