Construction


The course will familiarize the student with the content of the International Code Council’s International Building Code®, the purpose and intent of code requirements and how to apply the code to structures and occupancies. The course will primarily cover the non-structural provisions in depth (with a structural and materials overview), concentrating on Chapters 1 through 12, which are those most often in need of interpretation. The building code is the keystone to the entire family International Codes in that it provides the occupancy classifications, types of construction, building elements and terminology referenced by all of the codes. After completing this course, students should be able to understand the history and development of the codes and provisions that are used today; identify the main use group and type of construction of buildings; evaluate the buildings height and area requirements; explain the different types of life safety systems that are built into a structure; and, recognize the minimum code requirements for egress and fire protection based on use and occupancy.
