Course Description:
This seminar focuses on the basic concepts of the 2012 International Building Code (IBC).  These concepts provide a basis for the correct utilization of the code.  A clear understanding of the identified requirements allows the code user to apply the IBC in specific situations and helps to build an understanding of the intent of the code when asked to make a judgment on code compliance.  This course will also help the code user to correctly locate code requirements.  It will also provide a basis for the correct use and application of the code as well as to begin to develop a procedure for applying them.  It will address the organization of the code and how it relates to the IBC family of International Codes (I-Codes).

Course Objectives:
  • Identify how the health and safety of occupants is safeguarded with weather protection and interior environment controls.
  • Identify the intent of the building code.
  • Describe the common provisions applicable to design of commercial buildings.
  • Explain the fundamental provisions of the 2012 IBC.
  • Comprehend the use of passive and active fire protection.
  • Identify how life safety and egress issues are addressed in design and construction.

After registration is successfully submitted a confirmation email will be sent to the email address entered during registration.
