DescriptionThis seminar focuses on the basic concepts of the 2009 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 and recognize the interrelatedness of code requirements, as well as to begin to develop a procedure for applying them. It will address the organization of the code and the interrelation of the IBC with the family of International Codes® (I-Codes®).
