Description
This three-hour webcast gives participants an introduction to the International Building Code (IBC), which is a model building code developed by the International Code Council (ICC). The IBC Codes provide minimum safeguards for people with regard to building safety. Focus will be on the importance of the code in regard to fire prevention, ingress/egress, and structural stability. Discussions will also include additional codes (e.g., International Plumbing Code) that when referenced by the IBC are adopted, as well. This webcast distills the IBC down to relevant code sections, chapters, and working examples that illustrate fundamental code concepts.
