Course Description:

This seminar examines basic concepts of the 2019 International Residential Code (IRC) while incorporating the Indiana Code Amendments.  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 IRC 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 focus on Indiana Amendments that are new since the last code adoption in 2003.

  • Explain the fundamental provisions of the 2018 IRC with newly incorporated Indiana Amendments.
  • Locate general topics and applicable tables in the 2018 IRC.
  • Define terms essential for correct code interpretation to all aspects of the code including: building, energy conservation, plumbing, mechanical, fuel gas, and electrical.
  • Identify the significance code changes to the IRC since the last code adoption in 2003.
