ICC offers complimentary training materials
International Code Council members who attend training at an ICC Chapter Education Benefit Day will receive a new member benefit—complimentary training materials. This cost reduction builds on the Chapter Benefit Day training discount previously established by the Code Council. This new member benefit applies to materials provided for training at the yearly Chapter Education Benefit day. Previously, members and non-members were provided with training materials purchased at a discounted rate. Now member materials are absolutely free. The ICC Board will be monitoring the implementation of this benefit to determine whether it should be continued and/or expanded in future years.
“We are always looking for new ways to add value to ICC membership and to support our chapters,” said Code Council CEO Rick Weiland. “This new benefit will be good for both. Members receive complimentary training materials, and this should be an incentive for increased ICC member involvement at the chapter level.”
The Chapter Education Benefit day gives each eligible chapter the opportunity to select from a long list of training seminars. This benefit is a great fund-raising tool because it significantly reduces the cost of training by waiving the instructor fee and travel expenses. With the new ICC member benefit, the cost to the chapter becomes only the cost of the discounted training materials, such as workbooks and handouts, for class attendees who are not ICC members. Many chapters share this discount with attendees and charge only a nominal fee to cover the cost of the room, lunch and materials.
To earn the new complimentary training materials benefit, ICC members will need to indicate their membership status on the class roster. The chapter will not be charged for instructional materials for ICC members, including ICC governmental member and corporate member employees, who attend the class. Take advantage of this opportunity now.
