2018 Means of Egress
This training addresses numerous provisions in the 2018 International Building Code (IBC) where the code contains requirements pertaining to establishing a means of egress in buildings. The course is intended to help plan reviewers or building code officials responsible for plan review identify those areas where plan review will include compliance with the IBC. During this training, participants will be listening to lecture and viewing examples, as well as discussing sections of the IBC that pertain to plan review of a commercial building.

2018 IBC Mixed Occupancies
Based on the provisions of IBC Section 508, this course addresses those special requirements applicable to buildings containing two or more occupancy classifications. The three mixed-occupancy options are presented along with examples and exercises.

2018 IBC Exterior Wall and Opening Protection
This seminar addresses the various provisions in the IBC dealing with exterior wall design and construction. Although such walls are primarily regulated due to their location on the lot, many other additional requirements are set forth in the code. Exterior bearing walls are regulated by Table 601, while the use of exterior exit stairways, exit courts and exterior areas of assisted rescue will also typically mandate some degree of fire-resistance.

The deadline for a guaranteed reservation is 4:30 p.m. May 1, 2018 for the May 8-10, 2018 courses. We will accept registrations up to the day of each event on a space-available basis; however we cannot guarantee a workbook or handout material for anyone registering after the deadline. Space is limited to the first 70 registrants for each session.

The registration fee is $75 per 3 hour course or $150 for a six hour course. On-line registration will begin April 20, 2018. An e-mail acknowledgement will be sent once payment is made through the on-line registration system, if you pay by credit card. If you need an invoice for your records, please request one at
