Technical Training Programs

The Code Council’s Technical Training Programs are part of the Code Council’s Safety 2.0 initiative to welcome the next generation of leaders to the building safety profession. These educational programs integrate courses on one or more of the International Codes into schools’ current construction trade curricula. Students receive a nationally-recognized Certificate of Completion (COC) from the Code Council upon completion of any of six disciplines – building, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, masonry and energy – and passing a final exam.


High School Technical Training Program

The International Code Council’s High School Technical Training Program (HSTTP) is an innovative program established to formally introduce high school students to the International Residential Code (IRC) in conjunction with their construction trades training. For students considering this path, a background in building codes opens doors to advanced positions in many construction-related fields.
