DescriptionIt is important to have an up-to-date residential construction code addressing the design and construction of one- and two-family dwellings and townhouses to protect the health and safety of the public, as well as provide affordable housing.   There have been significant changes made to the International Residential Code® (IRC®) since the 2009 edition. This seminar highlights many of the differences between the 2009 and 2012 editions.   The scope of the IRC requires compliance with the International Building Code® (IBC®).   This course will identify important changes in the IRC from 2009 to 2012 edition. Participants will be presented with those changes that will most impact their use of the code when they adopt the 2012 IRC. The learner will receive an overview of the most important code changes.
